Procedures for Complaints and Compliant Resolution Policy

Snow Federal Retirement Seminars & ChFEBC℠, LLC (“the Company”) endeavors to be responsive to clients and customers and to quickly and fairly address any concerns or complaints client and customer may have. The Company recognizes a client and customer’s right to make a complaint about the conduct of the Company’s operations, services, staff, or third-party vendors, where that client and customer’s interests appear to have been adversely affected. The purpose of this Compliant Resolution Policy is to protect the client and customer’s rights, including the right to comment and complain; provide an efficient and fair process for resolving client and customer complaints; and to monitor complaints in an effort to improve the quality of operations and services the Company provides. This policy will provide the Company an opportunity to provide service and satisfaction to dissatisfied clients and clients and customers; ensure a consistent method of management; monitoring, and reporting of complaints; and identify areas that need improvement. 

If the complaint is against a ChFEBC℠, that individual will removed from the website and suspended from participation in any seminar or webinar until the issue is resolved.  If necessary and if the complaint warrants it, that ChFEBC℠ will be considered out of compliance and reported to their respective regulatory body, e.g. FINRA or a State Insurance Board.
