Complaints relating to Claims decisions 

Complaints relating to claims will be reviewed by the Asteron Life Claims Review Committee (the Committee). If the Committee is unable to resolve your complaint, or if you disagree with their decision, and it is within the jurisdiction of the Insurance & Financial Services Ombudsman, then Asteron Life will issue a Letter of Deadlock, so that you can refer your complaint to the Insurance & Financial Services Ombudsman. 

Please note that the Insurance & Financial Services Ombudsman will not consider a complaint until a Letter of Deadlock has been issued and does operate within certain jurisdictional limits. Please refer to the Insurance & Financial Services Ombudsman website for full details of this service and how to make a complaint:
