Experience tells us that most complaints can be addressed at this level.  If however, your complaint requires specialist attention, the appropriate staff member will respond to you promptly advising the expected timeframe resolution will take.


Further help is available 


If you are not satisfied with our response, you can refer the matter to the Customer Advocate who will impartially assess your complaint, keep you informed of progress and provide a response.

The Customer Advocate can be contacted by:

  • Telephone - 1300 139 572 (+61 3 5485 7919) Mon to Fri 8:30am - 5:00pm Victorian time
  • Email - customeradvocate@bendigoadelaide.com.au
  • Post/Letter - write to Customer Advocate, P.O. Box 480, Bendigo, Vic, 3552

Alternatively (or following consideration by the Customer Advocate) you may refer your complaint directly to the appropriate External Dispute Resolution scheme.
