It is our goal to conclude your complaint within ten (10) business days. In the event you have a complaint, please follow the 5 step process outlined below:

    Contact your broker

    Generally, most issues can be resolved promptly with a simple explanation. Contact your independent insurance broker first to discuss your concerns.

  • Step 2

If you are not satisfied with the services you have received or the handling of your complaint by the frontline staff, you will be referred to the relevant department manager, who will review your complaint.

  • Step 3
