Extremely disappointed

published

I have now been waiting for over a month for my funds to be transferred to my bank account. Cbus has been extremely unhelpful and rude throughout this period. I still have not had my balance paid or been given an explanation of why there has been such a delay considering cbus policy is that funds are paid within 5-8 business days.

Absolute dodge, definitely not following the law

published

They put a pay out in the wrong bank account, I informed them 2 day after transaction, no one did anything after continuous phone call with different stories and lies they finally got in touch with bank 2 weeks later. Now there is trouble to get the money back, if they got onto this directly before the 10 day mark the money would of been returned within 10 buisness days. The complaint department is full of lies. This is the worst company I have had to deal with in my entire life

Staff knowledge is shockingly low

I am a financial adviser and find CBUS extremely difficult to deal with. There has not been one occasion where I have phoned the call centre and the employee can answer a simple question. They are very unreliable and product knowledge is exceedingly low.

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

published

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

Fees are well up there!

Just collected my Super statements from my Apprentice days. $2000 of deposits, there was $700+ of fee deductions, of which nearly$500 were from CBUS. Goodluck earning a decent living in retirement.

published

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.

Appalling customer service

published

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

published

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.

Great service

published

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.

Customer Service

Worst company ever.
