Depending on your circumstances, we may require other information:

Assessment


The initial assessment begins as soon as we’ve received your claim form and supporting documents. 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.

Payout


Income Protection has a 30 day waiting period. As payment is made monthly in arrears, once the claim for the disability benefit is accepted, the first payment will become due to you from day 60. For the redundancy benefit, there will be a 6 month no claim period from the date your policy commenced. Death benefit claims will usually be paid within 2 business days of the decision being made, to the surviving policy owner or nominated beneficiaries, or if no beneficiaries were nominated, the deceased's estate.
