Our Promises to You
We are committed to ensuring continuity of key industry standards as we transition our industry association membership from the Financial Services Council to the Council of Australian Life Insurers. This transition will have no impact on how we serve and support our customers and we will continue to be bound by the Life Insurance Code of Practice and relevant standards.
When you take out life insurance, it’s important that you get the highest standards of service in all your dealings with us.
That’s why we have adopted the Life Insurance Code of Practice. It’s the life insurance industry’s commitment to mandatory customer service standards and it’s designed to protect you, our customer.
