Within 24 hours of receiving the call, we will send a claims pack detailing what information we need.
Here are some examples of what we may need:

*A certified copy is a copy signed and certified as being a true and accurate copy of the original document by a person who is authorised by law to certify documents. Legal practitioners, Justices of the Peace, police officers and chemists are some of the individuals who are authorised by law to certify documents.

We may need you to send us evidence of your income or other relevant documents depending on the nature of your claim. If you need to make a claim, we’ll discuss this with you.

Assessment

Assessment begins as soon as we've received your claim form and supporting documents. Generally it takes between 3-4 business days, however the length of time can vary depending on the circumstances of the claim and how quickly we receive everything. Your dedicated claims advisor will keep you updated of the progress and will assess each piece as quickly as possible.
