At Chubb we take any complaint seriously and promise to address your complaint in a timely and professional manner. Retaining your confidence and loyalty is key to us.
If your complaint involves an accessibility issue, please refer to our Accessibility Policy.
Step 1: Let Us Know
If you have a complaint, your first step should be to contact the Chubb representative who originally assisted you. It is often the case that a solution can be reached faster when you speak directly with the person responsible for your business. If you are represented by a broker you may wish to involve them at this stage. Your broker works for you and can assist you. Chubb's employees are knowledgeable and experienced and will be able to answer your questions, explain decisions or offer suggestions for resolution. Explain your circumstances and how you would like the matter resolved. Please provide details, such as, your name, contact numbers, email address, policy number, specific nature of your complaint and supporting documents.
If an agreement cannot be reached within a timeframe acceptable to you, you should proceed to Step 2 of the complaints process.
Step 2: Talk to Management
If you are dissatisfied with the response in Step 1 of the complaint process, you can ask to speak to that individual’s manager. A manager or another senior person directed by management will review the decision and discuss it with you.
If an agreement cannot be reached within a timeframe acceptable to you after management review, you should proceed to Step 3 of the complaints process.
Step 3: Contact Chubb’s Complaints Officer
If you have gone through the first two steps and remain dissatisfied, you can contact Chubb's Complaints Officer. This individual has been specifically appointed to provide an impartial review for unresolved customer complaints.
All requests for reviews must be sent in writing to Chubb’s Complaints Officer. The correspondence should include:
Address: 199 Bay Street, Suite 2500
P.O. Box 139 Commerce Court Postal Station
Toronto, ON M5L 1E2
Upon receiving your written request, our Complaints Officer will commit to a timeline for resolving your complaint. If the complaint cannot be addressed within this time period, you will be advised why a delay is necessary and told when you can expect a response.
Chubb’s Complaints Officer is an employee of Chubb with the responsibility to assist you with the complaint process and to act as an independent internal mediator. Chubb’s Complaints Officer will make sure the complaint process has been followed and that your complaint has been properly and fairly considered within Chubb and that a decision and explanation of our final position has been provided to you if an equitable solution cannot be reached.
Chubb’s Complaints Officer will also ensure you are advised of how you can escalate your complaint outside of Chubb for dispute resolution or mediation.
