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 St.George, 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 Experience team.
Our Customer Experience 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.
If you are a Business Bank, Institutional Bank, Premium Banking or Private Banking customer please contact your Relationship Manager or Private Banker in the first instance. Alternatively, you can contact us using the following contact details.

If you are in a branch:
You can tell us in person.
If you are still unhappy.
If you are not satisfied with our response or handling of your complaint, you can contact the St.George Customer Advocate (Customer Advocate) or an external dispute resolution scheme (External Scheme). Time limits apply to complain to an External Scheme. Please refer to the relevant External Scheme’s website set out below for details.
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 an External Scheme 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.
The St.George Customer Advocate can be contacted by email or mail:
Customer Advocate, Reply Paid 5265, Sydney NSW 2001
Please include the following information in your correspondence to the Customer Advocate;
- Your customer number and complaint reference number
- Your preferred contact details
- A brief description of your complaint
