Or you can lodge a complaint directly with the Australian Financial Complaints Authority (AFCA). Please see below for more information on AFCA.
How long will GuildSuper take to respond to a complaint?
Our Complaints Officer will acknowledge your complaint plus do their best to resolve it within 45 days of us receiving it, unless another timeframe is allowed or required under the relevant legislation.
A formal response will be reviewed by the Trustee and ultimately issued to you in accordance with the maximum timeframes.
If we are unable to provide you a response within this timeframe, we will provide you a delay notification advising you the reasons for the delay, as well as your rights to complain to the Australian Financial Complaints Authority (AFCA).
What can I do if I’m not satisfied with the outcome?
If you’re not happy with how we’ve handled your complaint you can lodge a further complaint with the Australian Financial Complaints Authority (AFCA). AFCA is an independent dispute resolution body set up by the Federal Government to provide a free, impartial and binding dispute resolution service for financial services.
If AFCA can deal with your complaint, it will attempt to resolve the complaint through conciliation. If this is unsuccessful, AFCA will review the decision to which the complaint relates.
