How long it takes us to fix the problem will depend on what the problem is. Often it will be a simple misunderstanding and we can sort it out immediately so that everyone is satisfied.Not all issues can be resolved quickly. Most importantly though, we will make sure that you know how long it is going to take and we will keep you up to date with our progress so that you are aware of any delays that may arise. Our aim is to solve any problem within 14 days, although in more complex cases (e.g. a complaint about an overseas card transaction) we may need up to 45 days. If this happens we will write to you to let you know.
We will ring you or write to you notifying you of the outcome.Remember, we will always aim to reach a fair solution with our members, however, if the result is not in your favour we will write to you and let you know:
We are a member of the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS). FOS provides an external and impartial procedure for resolving disputes between credit unions and their members. FOS is free of charge to members.
If you are not satisfied with the final outcome of your complaint, you may tell us to pursue the matter further with the FOS.
With your written consent, we will then refer the matter and all copies of documents and correspondence concerning the complaint, to FOS.
If we faiI to do this, or if we fail resolve your complaint within 45 days, you may refer the matter to FOS yourself. You can contact FOS on 1300 780 808 or at www.fos.org.au.
