If you are still unhappy

If you are not satisfied with our response or handling of your complaint, you can contact the Westpac Group Customer Advocate (Customer Advocate) or the external dispute resolution scheme, the Australian Financial Complaints Authority (AFCA).

From 1 July 2019 and for a 12-month period, AFCA will review eligible complaints dating back to the start of 2008. Westpac Group encourages customers to contact us directly in the first instance regarding any legacy complaints. Please refer to the AFCA website set out below for more information.

Customer Advocate

The role of the Customer Advocate is to provide an independent review of the outcome of your complaint. The Customer Advocate operates separately from our day to day business areas and its recommendations are binding on the bank. If you choose to contact the Customer Advocate first, you can still refer your complaint to AFCA if you remain dissatisfied. The Customer Advocate will advise you of the kinds of complaints they can help with. Find out more (and how to contact) your Customer Advocate.

Australian Financial Complaints Authority

The Australian Financial Complaints Authority (AFCA) is not part of Westpac. AFCA provides a free and independent service to resolve complaints by consumers and small businesses about financial firms (e.g. banks), where that complaint falls within AFCA’s terms of reference.

The contact details for AFCA are set out below.
