FEEDBACK TO COMPLAINANTS

Companies within the Group are committed to resolving complainants’ issues at the first point of contact.  However, this will not be possible in all circumstances, in which case a more formal complaints process will be followed.

Your complaint will be acknowledged within two (2) business days of receipt in the Service Quality Department and an initial review of the complaint will be undertaken.

We are committed to resolving all complaints within fifteen (15) business days of their being received in the Service Quality Department.  Where we have been unable to resolve the complaint within fifteen (15) business days, the complainant will be informed in writing; through various means, of the reason for the delay and given a new date for finalizing the complaint.

Once the complaint has been finalized, the complainant will be advised in writing on the findings and any action to be, or which was taken to prevent recurrence.

However, if the complaint is not resolved within forty-five (45) days of receipt the complainant would be notified in writing of this and of their right to forward their complaint to the Financial Services Commission (FSC).  You would also be advised to submit a copy of the complaint submitted to the FSC, to the Credit Union.

All complainants have the right to make enquiries about the current status of their complaint at any time by contacting the Service Quality Department.
