A 3 Step Process

Step One: Talk to Us

You can let us know about your concern in any of the following ways.

A quick chat, email or meeting with one of our staff is often all that’s needed to sort out your concern.

Call us on: 09 274 5751, email: complaints@pic.co.nz

Or pop in to see us at one of our Branches

Step Two: Contact our Complaint Resolution Team

If you feel that the staff member you dealt with did not resolve your complaint to your satisfaction, you can do any of the following:

  • Ask to speak to the relevant Manager
    • Maureen Hunt – Life and Health Complaints
    • Don Hinton – Fire and General Complaints

Sometimes it helps to document your concerns.  Simply complete our Customer Feedback Form, including details of your complaint and what you would like to see happen as a result. You can email this to us or post it to us.

Step Three: Ask the Insurance Ombudsman to help

We hope that your complaint has been resolved before this stage.  If not you can ask for independent help from the Insurance Ombudsman.
