Ombudsman

If you’re not satisfied with a product or the level of service you’ve received from us or the Aviva group of companies, our Ombudsman will try to resolve the situation by acting as a liaison to help resolve any issues.

To ensure your matter is addressed as efficiently as possible, please follow these steps:

  • Involve your representative’s supervisor or manager to see if they can assist you.
  • If they are unable to resolve the situation, contact the Ombudsman who will review your concerns and work with you to try and resolve them.  If the Ombudsman is unable to come to an agreeable resolution, you can request a Final Position Letter that states the final decision on the issues and outlines the next steps in the complaint process.
