Faulty Towers Without The Humour
CBUS will keep your money by any means. The below letter says it all!
I have had NO reply from the actual CEO but the complaints manager sent myself an email stating that she was looking after my complaint..... so I called.....
This lady didn't even know who I was and rudely told me that she would look into it within 45 days (so CBUS even finds away to hold on to your money longer because you complained about their service).
I have now complained to AFCA who has given CBUS until the 20/01/2020.
This people at cbus are nothing but criminals.
...Hi Mr [name removed], My Member number is .............. For five weeks l have been attempting to change my date of birth with CBUS Super. At of this time it has not been done and your staff tell me they do not know why it is not done, when it will be done and if CBUS will ever do it. WOW!!
I would give no stars if possible
Awful to deal with, customer service appalling. Only been with them a short time after 15 years with other superfund and what a mistake. Documentation is poor and has a real don't care attitude. Run for the hills folks
Disappointing Cbus Smart Home Automation
We had installed Cbus Smart Home Automation (Schneider Electric) in our house paying top dollar. After only 1 year the main program panel was found to be faulty. We spent a lot of time trying to get it replaced and finally in the end they came to replace the faulty panel. Shortly afterwards, the programming was not working properly so we had to contact the technicians to fix it. The Wiser system they had installed & programmed 2 years ago was also found to be faulty. We spoke to Schneider Electric rep who was extremely rude & careless and did not help us. It has cost of an extra $2,000 to replace the faulty Wiser system. We highly do not recommend the Cbus Smart Home Automation system by Schneider Electric
Have never had any negative issues with cbus
Hi I have been with cbus for about 4 years received a membership card shortly after joining and used their website regularly and had no issues navigating it or getting things I wanted done on it , the returns on investment have been better than other funds I have been involved with and fees are lower , I have attended many of there free seminars and found them very informative,I have recently retired and discussed income stream matters over the phone ,received postal information from them with forms which were filled out as much as possible fro...m them by them ,found persons on the other end of the phone helpful and well informed . When I finally lodged the forms apparently they had been superseded twice and as I was overseas when I discovered this they emailed the correct new forms to me ( again filled in as much as they could) , I lodged them new forms from overseas and 2 weeks later funds were deposited into my nominated account , I could not be happier with the service so far and would highly recommend cbus Cheers Ross
Worst superfund ever....you will die before you get anything (member for many years)
Do not get involved with them they are a scam they take you for all you are worth. We get together contact 60 min and current affair and get them shut down.
October 23rd 2019 Update: To everyone **do not get cbus" it will ruin your life
I am at the transition stage of retirement. I signed a legal document saying when I reach 55 I can retire. Thanks to cbus I now live on the street.
Hardship and tpd claim
I was with them for 20years and granted it took a few months to get into see the specialist but as soon as all the necessary reports and paperwork wss recieved i hsd the hardship payment in my bank 3 days later and 2 weeks for a decision from the insurance provider and they said 10 to 15 days until i get the tpd payout. I could not be hsppier with their service
Appalling customer service
Unable to process salary sacrifice into my super as I’m over 65 years old. I’m still working full time. Have tried phoning Cbus but they don’t have enough staff to answer the phone. Sent 5 emails and get the standard reply “we will contact you” but no one ever has. This mob should not be in business. Shocking customer service.
Excellent Customer Service
I've been with Cbus for 18 months. I was having some issues on my insurance cover and was going to transfer to another big superannuation fund, only found that their service is even worse!!! (at least your calls will be answered with Cbus!!! )
Anyway, I determined to stay with Cbus, and fortunately my issues were solved later. I am so glad that I stayed.
I don't know about other superannuation funds, but comparing with the big superannuation fund that I mentioned earlier, Cbus has excellent customer service.
- Verified customer
I have been a member for over 6 months.
I have had previous issues with CBus relating to critical policy changes on investment strategies that were hidden in 40 page product information booklets and not divulged by advisors.
Recently CBus modified their app and advised clients of the upgrade.
Superannuation accounts are accessible via the app.
Super Stream accounts still have to accessed via the Cbus website....
Billions of dollars in unclaimed super pfffft
Cbus takes out 3 fees per month. Admin fee $6 TDP premium $5.40 DTH premium $5.35 these fees randomly go up and down. Cbus probably own the very company insurances are paid to.
Takes 5 days to proccess a financial hardship claim and 10 days for other claims, there is no way there is even a days work involved all the work is done by yourself on your application they simply need to read it review it approve it and PAY IT! 10 minutes work tops.They dont want you to take money from them as they use your money to gamble basically the more money the...
CBUS helped me become a member - went through the whole application process and guided me over the phone while I filled it out on-line. My superannuation is now being brought over from another fund into CBUS - I was helped with every aspect and cannot recommend them highly enough.
Worst company ever.
My partner is retired and has been taking some of his super out when needed. Not once has this been an easy task. He filled out the paperwork and sent it nearly 5 weeks ago, got one email to say that he hadn't written when he stopped working, I did that and sent the email. We waited and he rang them, oh we didn't get the email, okay it will be in next week, never went in. Again another phone call and I also sent another email for him stating that he wanted the money asap, nothing. He just rang them again now and told them he is getting a Solici...tor and that they are nothing more than liars and thieves. It was bad enough when they got everything computerised years ago hundreds of workers lost 10 years of their super because of a "glitch" in the system and even though the ATO had everything, Cbus refused to give it back, so nothing has changed. I honestly don't think one of them know what the hell they are doing. My partner was in the building industry for over 47 years and he would never recommend Cbus to anyone.
The worst Super fund, they cheat and trap the Australian. My employer contributed 493.87 $ and when I checked after 3 months It was 84$, they paid premiums on my behalf without my permission. Scam, with Aussies, Be aware........
Income protection insurance.
Been with Cbus for 7years but join the income protection over a year ago. Was off work in August this year for 2.5 months.
Cbus send the forms out and return to them within a month after collecting all the documents from the doctors and physio. Have been waiting for 3weeks without any news. Call them up to see what happens, the didn’t receive it as they’ve move address!! Huh where’s the documents!! Luckily I made copy’s but not all of it. Back n forth for another month and now TAL wants my documents?!?!
Just received email today ...
The worst company I have had the misfortune of dealing with. I have been fighting them for 8 years to get my Total and Permanent Disability claim settled. Don’t give them your hard earned money. If you do need to make a claim, get a Very good and expensive solicitor, you will need it.
In a matter that required interaction with the call centre to rectify i found the staff to be unhelpful.
A simple matter required many calls to rectify because the first response is always to defend their position instead of just trying to find out what went wrong. This to me is a sign of shifting responsibility and is a concern because if a lowly call centre officer act's in this manner does the rest of the organization, considering my experience i will assume so. Overall a very poor experience and i will be rollingover to a better performi...
