Have a Complaint or Concern?

At Ecclesiastical Insurance Office, we take pride in our values of Truth, Trust and Teamwork, and providing the best possible service to our customers and the public. From time to time however, something can go wrong. If you feel there is a misunderstanding or that you’ve not been dealt with fairly, there is an industry-standard process in place to make sure your concerns are addressed. 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:
