How do I make a complaint? How will my complaint be handled?

We take complaints seriously and have a process through which we seek to resolve them.

Here is a brief overview of the complaints process (more detail is provided below):

  1. Contact us with your concerns and a telephone number or email address to reach you at
  2. One of our consultants will be in touch as soon as possible, and may refer you to a manager, in order to resolve your complaint within 15 business days
  3. If the manager can’t resolve your complaint, you can request that the matter be referred to IAG Customer Relations, who will contact you with a decision on your dispute within 15 business days
  4. If you are unhappy with the decision reached by Customer Relations, or if your complaint isn’t resolved within 45 days, you can access external review options such as the Australian Financial Complaints Authority (AFCA)

 

Below the complaints process is discussed in more detail:

We firmly believe that getting covered, and claiming on your insurance, shouldn’t be more trouble than it’s worth. Like our claims process, ShareCover’s complaint process is designed to be clear and easy. We want you to have peace of mind that should any issue arise, you will have the ability to voice that issue, and have your concern closely considered, with a view to resolving it.

First, we ask that you contact us with your concerns, and provide us with the best telephone number or e-mail address to reach you at. You can contact us via the following channels:

E-mail: contact@sharecover.com

One of our consultants will then be in touch as soon as possible to try and resolve the complaint for you. If they’re unable to resolve it, they’ll refer you to a manger. You may also request to speak to a manager at any stage in the process. We may need to gather more information to field your complaint, and if so the consultant or manager will aim to respond within 15 business days of first receiving the complaint.

If the manager cannot resolve your complaint, you can request the matter be referred to Customer Relations. You can contact them via the following channels:

Telephone: 1800 045 517
E-mail: customer.relations@iag.com.au – Attention: Customer Relations

Customer Relations will treat your complaint as a dispute and assign one of their staff members to conduct an independent review of the matter. Customer Relations will contact you with a decision within 15 business days of receiving your dispute.

If you are unhappy with the decision reached by Customer Relations, or if your complaint isn’t resolved within 45 days, you may wish to access external review options such as the Australian Financial Complaints Authority (AFCA). Customer Relations will provide you with information on this and other external
review options. You can contact the AFCA via the following channels:
