Feedback and complaints

At BankSA we welcome your suggestions, compliments and complaints as an opportunity to improve our service, provide feedback to our staff and put things right when we have let you down.

Report a hoax or scam.

Making a suggestion.

If you have any suggestions you feel will enable us to provide you with better products and services, please let us know.

Making a compliment.

There is nothing so encouraging as a well-earned compliment. So if you have received exceptional service from BankSA, please let us know so that we can pass on the compliment.

Making a complaint.

If you’re ever unhappy about something we’ve done – or perhaps not done – please give us the opportunity to put things right.

Our aim is to resolve your complaint within 5 working days, however, where possible we will resolve your complaint on the spot. If we need some additional time to get back to you, we will let you know. Should we be unable to resolve your concern at your first point of contact, we will then refer the complaint to our dedicated Customer Solutions team.

Our Customer Solutions Managers are here to find a solution for you and will ensure that you're regularly updated about the progress we are making to resolve your complaint.

Your complaint will be reviewed in line with our FAIRGO principles.

As a customer of BankSA, Adrian Ahern is your Customer Advocate whose role is to advise and guide our complaint team in how best to resolve a complaint and also to listen to customers and recommend changes be made to bank policies, procedures and processes.
