In the event that you do make representation to the insurer, the Insurer must within 30 days, in writing, notify you of its reviewed decision.

If you are still unhappy with the decision taken, you are welcome to contact either the Short-Term Insurance Ombudsman or the FAIS Ombudsman. The Short-Term Insurance Ombudsman looks at the insurance contract itself to determine whether the policy terms and conditions were administered correctly. The FAIS Ombudsman studies the procedure and content of the advice that was provided to you at the time you purchased the policy.
Please note: The Ombudsman only considers a complaint made to him if he is satisfied that the Complainant has hied unsuccessfully to resolve the matter through approaches to the Insurers Management or Internal Complaints handling department.
