How to make a complaint
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, the IFoA is currently managing its resources carefully and will therefore be giving priority to complaints where it is in the public interest that we do so. This means there may be delays in the progression of other complaints during this time. Please see our guidance note on our handling of Disciplinary Tribunals during the COVID-19 situation.
If you are considering making a complaint about a member of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA), we recommend that you first read our note "How to complain about a member".
How to complain about a member contains information about:
- how to make an allegation against a member
- how the IFoA deal with allegations against a member
- the disciplinary process, and
- details of other organisations who may be able to help.
If you have any questions about making a complaint about an IFoA member please email email@example.com.
