Addressing Concerns

We take complaints very seriously and you have our commitment to lean in to make things right and retain your and all members confidence.

  • We commit to respond to your complaint within 24 hours of receipt to acknowledge your complaint, and wherever possible strive for immediate resolution.
  • If further investigation is required (this is sometimes the case), we will keep you in the know as to who is reviewing the concerns and anticipated resolution times.

To ensure we have the best opportunity to help you, we encourage you to follow the complaint process highlighted below. Ahead of connecting, try and put together any relevant paperwork or information. When we connect, will ask you to share the details. Items to consider include:

  • Your name and address
  • Your preferred method of communication (for fastest resolve, we recommend sharing your phone number and email)
  • Details around your experience – date, circumstances, and people
  • What action you would like us to take.

Step 1: Sharing the experience with the front-line team

When sharing your experience, it’s best to start where the issue began – with the branch, wealth specialist or with the contact centre for example. Our leaders will be sure to make themselves available to hear your experiences. Our team members are empowered to handle nearly all concerns that are shared their way. The branch team will work diligently to resolve your concerns.

Step 2: Escalating your concerns to a department or area manager

If we are unable to resolve your concerns at the branch or department level, you will be connected with the appropriate area manager or department manager.

Concerns can be escalated by reaching out anytime to myexperience@connectfirstcu.com or by requesting a call back from our Member Experience leader.

Again, we strive to respond within one business day.

Step 3: Connecting with our Member Experience Leader

We are confident most concerns will be resolved in Steps 1 or 2 however, if you are not satisfied concerns can be escalated by reaching out anytime to myexperience@connectfirstcu.com or by requesting a call back from our Member Experience leader. They will work with you and where necessary, connect you with the appropriate senior leader in the process.

Step 4: Contact the Ombudsman for Banking Services and Investments

If we are unable to resolve your concerns, The Ombudsman for Banking Services and Investment (OBSI) may be able to provide you with an independent and impartial avenue to resolve concerns. They are an independent federal organization that investigates consumer complaints against financial services providers. This service is free of charge.
