File a Complaint
If you are a customer of a financial institution and have a complaint, the Utah Department of Financial Institutions (DFI) or another regulatory agency may be able to assist you. The DFI does not regulate all financial institutions in Utah.
To avoid unnecessary delays, we strongly encourage you to begin by determining which agency(s) may have authority to process your complaint. This is a two-step process. Step 1 will take you to a different page on our website. After you complete Step 1, return to this page to complete Step 2.
Step 1) Click here and enter the financial institution’s name in the “Find by Name” field. Find the institution’s name in the result list, and then note the financial institution type shown under the name. (Hint: the types are shown on the following chart.) If the financial institution does not appear on our list, call us at 801-538-8830 for assistance.
Step 2) Look at the financial institution type in the following chart to find the appropriate regulatory agency and contact information.
