PSC Insurance Brokers Complaint Procedures
PSC Insurance Brokers subscribe to the Insurance Brokers Code of Practices and are a member of the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS). As part of the Code obligations, we are committed to the fair, transparent and timely resolution of disputes.
The following procedure applies to all AFS licensed entities.
If you are not satisfied with a product, service or possible code breach allegation by your broker or authorised representative, please contact the Manager of the PSC Branch or PSC Entity of the business with whom you are dealing. Please refer to the Contact page shown on this website. If the matter is unable to be resolved to your satisfaction, you can ask that the matter be referred to the PSC Complaints Officer located in our Head Office.
If your complaint is not satisfactorily resolved within 24 hours, please contact our Complaints Officer on 0415 792071 or put your complaint in writing and send it to the:
PSC Insurance Brokers
GPO Box 577
East Melbourne, Victoria 8002
We will try to resolve your complaint quickly and fairly. The Complaints Officer will acknowledge your complaint in writing and endeavour to resolve the matter within 20 working days of receipt.
If you remain dissatisfied, you have the right to refer your complaint to the Insurance Broking Division of the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) for further consideration and/or adjudication. All of our AFS licensed entities are members of this independent facility. Your complaint will be referred to a FOS Case Manager who will conciliate with a view to seeking a solution acceptable to both parties.
If either you or ourselves reject the FOS Case Manager’s findings and your complaint remains unresolved, it will be referred to the FOS’s Referee who will make a final determination on the resolution of your compliant. The decision of the Referee is binding on us (but not on you).
Further information about FOS is available from all of our offices.
