We work hard to deliver the best banking experience possible to our customers. We value your opinion, so if a product or service does not meet your expectations, we want to know about it.
Our team is here to listen, and ready to help you resolve any complaints or concerns you may have. Plus, your feedback gives us the opportunity to better our products and services, which is something we continually strive to do. So if you have a complaint, concern, suggestion or just wish to give some feedback, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Making a complaint
When you make a complaint we will:
- try to resolve the matter on the spot - in most situations we can do this;
- keep you up to date on our progress;
- work hard to resolve your matter within 21 days;
- let you know in writing if we require more information or more time to investigate your matter; and
- provide you with a final response within 45 days.
If we are unable to provide a final response to your complaint within 45 days, we will inform you of the reasons for the delay.
To help us get the best understanding of your concern, we recommend that you:
- be prepared with any supporting documents or evidence you think will help clarify your concern; and
- be as clear as possible about what has happened.
To make a complaint
Step 1 - Talk to us
In most situations, we will be able to resolve the matter for you on the spot. Call us on 138 001 or visit your nearest branch.
If you prefer to put your complaint in writing, you can email or write to us, or complete and return the Complaints, Compliments & Suggestions form.
Phone: 138 001
Mail: Complaints Officer, MyState, GPO Box 1274, HOBART TAS 7001
If your complaint is complex or needs a detailed investigation, we will make sure that it is referred to the right department promptly and will respond to your complaint as quickly as possible.
Step 2 - Ask for your complaint to be reviewed
If you are not satisfied with our initial response, you can request the matter be reviewed by a Senior Manager or our Customer Advocate. You can contact us by phone, in writing by mail or email, or in person at your nearest branch. Please let us know your customer number, the reason why you are not satisfied with our initial response and the outcome you are seeking. We will make sure that it is referred straight away to an appropriate Senior Manager or our Customer Advocate for review and a response. Our Customer Advocate’s role is to act as independently as possible and make sure that your complaint is handled fairly.

Step 3 - External review
If, despite everyone’s best efforts you remain dissatisfied with our Senior Manager’s or Customer Advocate’s response, you may wish to have the matter investigated by someone else.
