Your Insights Into How We Deal With Your Complaints

Published September 7, 2023

Life Insurance Direct aims to deliver each and every one of our clients with the best general advice and service at all times. If, for some reason, you’re not satisfied with our service or have suggestions about how it could be improved, then we want to hear from you.

Who do I contact?

Your first step should be to speak to a Specialist / Team Member and discuss what can be done. They’ll try to resolve any concerns you may have but, even if they can’t, you can expect your complaint to be acknowledged in writing within 24 hours (or 1 business day).

What if I don’t want to speak to my Specialist / Representative?

Your Specialist / Representative knows you, and your circumstances best, but you don’t need to speak with them if you would prefer not to. In these circumstances, contact our Complaints Officer on 1300 135 205 or through our Contact Us page. The Complaints Officer will acknowledge your complaint within 24 hours (or 1 business day) and then manage your complaint through to resolution.

How do I contact the Complaints Officer?

You can contact our Complaints Officer by telephone, email, post or via our website:

Do I have to put my complaint in writing?

You don’t have to fill out forms or submit additional paperwork simply to let us know that you’re unhappy with us, our staff or our services. You can lodge a complaint with us over the phone, via post or via our website.

When can I expect the matter to be resolved?

Where we can’t resolve your complaint within 5 business days, we’ll respond formally by providing you with a written response within 30 days.

What should I provide to you?

Please provide us with an explanation of your dissatisfaction to allow us to investigate the matter for you.
