- A written response will be made as soon as possible but within the 90-day limit prescribed by the regulations.
- The complaint when received will be entered into the Complaints Register.
Superannuation Complaints Tribunal:
For any complaint / enquiry that is unable to be resolved to your satisfaction, the Government has established the Superannuation Complaints Tribunal. This tribunal is located in Melbourne at:
Superannuation Complaints Tribunal
Locked Bag 3060
GPO MELBOURNE VIC 3001
Telephone : 1300 780 808
The tribunal is intended to be informal and easy to use. It will provide for fair, economical and quick conciliation or review of complaints. Complaints may be submitted by either current or former members, and their beneficiaries, and will largely be dealt with by correspondence.
The tribunal can deal with any complaint related to a decision, or a failure to make a decision by a trustee, or a person acting for a trustee, in relation to a particular individual.
The tribunal will not deal with complaints about the management of a fund generally, or investment strategy.
Further information on the function of the tribunal can be obtained by contacting the tribunal direct.
