Should I make a complaint or a claim?

Making a complaint is different from making a claim. When you make a complaint it is usually to get answers about what went wrong. You may also want an apology or be told that changes will be made to stop it from happening again.

When you make a claim you believe that you are entitled to a payment because we have not met one of guaranteed standards.
