There is no charge for making a complaint via RBF's internal complaints handling procedure.

You can make a complaint to RBF relating to:

  • the operation or management of RBF;
  • a particular individual who is acting on behalf of RBF;
  • the action or inaction of RBF, or an authorised representative of RBF, but cannot relate to the action or inaction of the member's employer;
  • a decision by RBF in respect of a benefit payment; or
  • an exercise of discretion by the Commission as trustee of RBF.

As RBF is not a regulated super fund you cannot lodge a complaint with the Super Complaints Tribunal. You can however lodge a complaint with the Tasmanian Ombudsman.

You can make a complaint to RBF:

  • by calling the RBF Enquiry Line on 1800 622 631;
