What type of information will I need to provide when making an insurance claim?
The information you'll need to provide when making an insurance claim will vary depending on the type of claim you are making.
- If you are claiming for Life or Accidental Death Insurance we'll need a death certificate. We'll also need proof of the life insured's age, the policy document and (depending on who owns the policy) probate or letters of administration.
- If you are claiming for Funeral Insurance we'll need a death certificate. We'll also need the policy document, proof of any nominated beneficiary's identity and (depending on who owns the policy) a copy of the will.
- For Travel Insurance, we'll need evidence and receipts to support your claims.
- For Trauma Insurance claims, we'll ask you and your doctor for details of your medical condition. Your doctor will need to provide us with copies of reports and test results confirming your medical condition.
- For Income Protection claims, we'll ask you and your doctor for details of your medical condition and ability to work. We'll also ask you for details of your job and income. You'll need to provide us with documents confirming your medical condition, employment and income.
When we send you a claim form we'll make sure all the information you need to give to us is clearly listed. And as always, we're here to help so if you have any questions, feel free to contact us.
