Keeping you updated on our approach to paying claims and stories to demonstrate the true value of your recommendations.

We want to pay claims and be there for your client when it matters. In 2016 we paid, on average, 9 out of every 10 claims.

Claims

Our approach to paying claims

In 2016 we paid on average more than £1.6m a week in claims, offering financial help to families affected by accidents, illness, unemployment and death. The way we support and look after your clients is just as important as the money we pay, so we offer the following:

A dedicated claims assessor
We understand making a claim can be daunting, so your client will be assigned a dedicated claims assessor along with their direct contact details. Ensuring your client speaks to the same person (for all aspects of the claim) will help establish a meaningful and personal relationship, making a real difference during a difficult time. Your client will be able to contact their claims assessor whenever they need to, ensuring any questions, queries or concerns are dealt with quickly.
Flexible approach to submitting a claim
We understand everyone is different, so we offer your clients a choice of how they can submit their claim form. They can complete and return their claim form by post, email or over the phone. We also offer an online claim form for Personal Sick Pay claims. And while we aim to pay all valid claims as quickly and as soon as we can, sometimes medical or financial information can have an impact on how quickly your client receives their money. To manage their expectations, we’ll keep your client updated on their claim throughout the process, by text, email or phone.
Claims Escalation Forum
There are occasions when a claim isn’t straightforward, for example where a claim doesn’t meet the specified definitions or there is uncertainty around information provided on the original application form. For these cases we have a dedicated and governed Claims Escalation Forum, where a group of people from different parts of the business meet and review the claim. They agree to pay or decline the claim, and where appropriate, recommend alternative or supplementary actions such as making a partial or ex-gratia payment.
