Complaints Procedure – Ireland
Initially, please telephone us and we will be happy to investigate any issue you are not satisfied with.
For claims related complaints, please call our Claims Service Department on 1800 930 803.
For any other type of complaint, please call our Customer Service Department on 1800 298 551.
If, having discussed the issue, you are not fully satisfied with the proposed resolution, your call will be referred to a Team Leader or Section Head within the department. The Team Leader/Section Head will undertake an investigation into your complaint and will contact you within 48 hours.
If we are unable to resolve your complaint within 48 hours or if you are not happy with the resolution proposed by the Team Leader, your complaint will be referred to our Compliance Department.
We will aim to conclude our investigation within five working days. If however, we are unable to finalise your complaint within this timescale, we will write to acknowledge your complaint and advise that we intend to complete the investigation within 20 working days. If after 20 working days we are not in a position to resolve your complaint, we will write to update you on the present position of the investigation. We will also advise you of the date when we anticipate the complaint will be completed (this will be within 40 working days of receipt of your complaint).
Our Compliance Department Section Head will then review and approve the investigation findings.
We will then write our response letter to you, confirming our findings and stating any financial redress, if applicable.
We will also advise if your complaint has been upheld or rejected. If, you do not contact us within 40 working days of receipt of this letter, we will close our complaint file and our response letter will be classed as our final response.
If, upon receipt of our final response letter, you are not fully satisfied with the outcome of our investigation, you may refer your complaint to the Financial Services Ombudsman’s Bureau (FSOB). The FSOB is an independent organisation that deals with unresolved complaints from consumers about their individual dealings with financial service providers.
FSOB contact details:
Financial Services Ombudsman’s Bureau
Please note that the FSOB will only deal with your complaint if you have already given Carole Nash Insurance Consultants Ltd the opportunity to resolve it.
Any decision made by the FSOB is only binding on the Insurer and Carole Nash Insurance Consultants Ltd and you remain free to take action in court.
This procedure for the handling of complaints is entirely without prejudice to your rights in Irish Law and you are free at any stage to seek legal advice and take legal action.
