How To File A Complaint Against Your Lender
The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency or (OCC) is an arm of the United States Department of Treasury. The OCC’s primary mission is to charter, regulate, and supervise all national banks and federal savings associations. You can file a complaint with the OCC against the bank online at: http://www.helpwithmybank.gov
Consider your answers to the following before you begin your online complaint:
- Have you checked HUD’s “Get Answers” section for information about national bank regulations and your rights as a consumer?
- Have you tried to resolve your complaint with your financial institution?
- Is your financial institution a national bank? Search “Financial Institutions.” If your bank is not a national bank, you should contact the appropriate regulator to submit your complaint.
Select only one of the following methods to file your complaint.
- Complete the “Online Customer Complaint Form.” Do not mail, e-mail or fax additional information unless requested.
- Print an OCC Complaint Form (PDF). To view PDF files, you will need Acrobat Reader. All forms request the same information.
- If you have questions about filing your complaint, discuss them with a customer assistance specialist. The OCC Customer Assist ance Group can be reached at 1-800-613-6743,
