The Claims Process

Life insurance is designed to reduce financial burden

Coping with the death of a loved one is undoubtedly one of the most stressful things any of us will have to go through in our lifetimes.

Life insurance is designed to reduce the financial burden that is felt when a member of the family passes away, but in order to benefit from this financial windfall, a claim must be made.

Most insurers understand that complicated paperwork is the last thing anyone needs at this difficult time and they have made their claims process pretty straightforward. Some now offer online claim forms too.

The standard claims process

Claims processes can vary from one insurer to another, but as a general rule they all follow the same clear steps to making a claim:

  1. Contact the insurance provider to make them aware you want to make a claim
  2. Receive the claim pack in the post or by email
  3. Fill in the required details and provide required documentation – (Death certificate, claim form, policy document)
  4. The insurer usually requires original copies of these documents, so send it by registered post to avoid any losses
  5. Receive payment either directly or as part of the deceased’s estate.
