Complaint Resolution Process

If you have a concern with our service it will most likely be addressed at your branch or through the TeleService Centre. Sometimes we will need to investigate further to make sure you are satisfied.

Here are the steps for a quick resolution:

Reminder:  If your request requires the disclosure of confidential, account or personal information, please remember to log into your Online Banking account first to secure authenticity before filling in the form or give us a call. Do not send personal or account information by email.
