Here's some information about how to complain about the way we at OSBC dealt with your payment dispute or query.
This policy covers what to do if you are unhappy about:
- the standard of service we provide
- the behaviour of our team members
- any action or lack of action by us, affecting an individual or group
You cannot use this process to complain if we decided your payment dispute was outside our remit, or about a decision we made in relation to your.
We want to help you resolve your payment disputes and queries as quickly, efficiently and as effectively as possible, so we need you to tell us when we get things wrong. If you have a complaint, please send an email to: email@example.com
This is the first opportunity for us to resolve your complaint. We aim to resolve the majority of complaints at this stage.
We will send acknowledgement within 5 working days and a Casework Manager will investigate and send you a full response within 20 working days.
You have a maximum of 28 days from the date of our letter/email to tell us if you are still dissatisfied and want your complaint progressed to the next stage.
At Stage 2, the Head of Operations at the OSBC will review the Stage 1 response. We will send an acknowledgement within 5 working days and a full response within 20 working days.
Again you have a maximum of 28 days from the date of our letter/email to tell us it you are still unhappy and request that your complaint is progressed to the next stage.
You can ask for an independent review by the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman. Only an MP can make a complaint to the Ombudsman. You can identify your MP online, at your local library, or by asking Citizens Advice.
