You can contact APRA to provide information on:

  • The financial health of an institution we regulate
  • The prudent management of those institutions
  • Any possible failures to comply with the laws APRA administers
  • Feedback on how we are performing our duties.

As the prudential regulator, APRA will generally be unable to assist with:  

  • complaints about your institution or its products
  • the progress of your personal affairs with an institution
  • concerns about shares, housing prices, mortgage terms and conditions

To enquire about these types of matters you will need to contact the relevant institution directly.

Please check Providing information on the institutions APRA regulates for guidance.
