Commitment to Service

We are committed to providing our customers with world class service. However, should you have any reason to believe that we have fallen short in our service, we would be happy to hear from you and address any issues that have arisen.

Chubb has an Internal Dispute Resolution Panel (IDR) to handle any unresolved complaints or disputes. It underscores our commitment to acting in a fair, transparent and timely manner.

Lodging a Complaint or Dispute with Chubb

Following are the steps involved when lodging a complaint or dispute with Chubb:

  • Stage One
    Please contact our Complaints Chairman outlining your complaint or dispute in as much detail as you can provide, along with your name, contact numbers, email address, policy number, specific nature of your complaint or dispute and supporting documents.
  • Stage Two
    We will acknowledge your complaint or dispute within 3 working days and endeavour to resolve it promptly and amicably.

  • Stage Three
    In most cases Chubb will provide a final decision to you within 15 working days of receiving your complaint provided we have available all required information. If the matter requires investigation beyond 15 working days, we will advise you and seek to agree on reasonable alternative time frames with you. In accordance with the General Insurance Code of Practice we will update you on the progress of your complaint every 10 working days. If we are not able to resolve your complaint or dispute to your satisfaction within 45 days, we will inform you of the reasons for the delay and that you may take the complaint or dispute to our external dispute resolution scheme outlined below in Stage Four.
  • Stage Four
    If you remain dissatisfied with our final response or we are not able to resolve your complaint or dispute to your satisfaction within 45 days, you can consider referring the matter to the department in your state or territory responsible for consumer complaints or request a review of the complaint by the FOS by fax, post or email as provided below. This service is free of charge.

Where Chubb cannot provide you with insurance cover, we will refer you to the Insurance Council of Australia (the ICA) for information about alternative insurance options (unless you already have someone acting on your behalf). The ICA has established a dedicated telephone number for consumers who are asking for information about alternative insurance options which is: 1300 884 934.
