In line with the latest UK government guidance regarding the Coronavirus (Covid 19) pandemic, we've updated our information and FAQs.

Our teams remain fully operational on a working from home or hybrid basis. We have started a limited programme of reopening some offices with a small number of colleagues returning but this will only continue cautiously, in line with any local and national health and safety recommendations and requirements.

Any colleagues who have exhibited significant symptoms are self-isolating and any colleagues who have been in close proximity to these individuals have also been asked to self-isolate  as per government guidelines.

Please continue to contact us via email and phone. We also have inbound and outbound postal processes in place that mean we can receive, send and process your postal documents. We continue to process your instructions as quickly as possible and can now accept cheques, however there may be a delay in processing these. Our preferred option at this time would be electronic payments (BACS, CHAPS).

If you require support as a direct result of COVID-19, please contact your broker to discuss your needs and what assistance may be available.

Under some circumstances an adjustment to the cover required may be available and / or we may be able to assist with deferred payments. Please do not cancel your Direct Debit Instruction as this may trigger our automated default process, which could result in the cancellation of your policy.

If you are experiencing financial difficulties you may wish to seek financial advice. The Money Advice Service has created a Money Navigator Tool to assist with getting started and their website includes details of free advice services. The Financial Services Authority has also published information for consumers dealing with financial difficulties during coronavirus.

No. The Court has said ‘an incident’ or ‘event’ means something which happens at a particular time, at a particular place, in a particular way, e.g. a bomb scare, gas leak or traffic accident, rather than a disease.
We have a small number of claims that will be affected by the outcome of Corbin and King. We will automatically review any claims already submitted to us that have the same or similar wording as the wording in the Corbin and King case. This means that in some cases we may change our decision and pay claims that we have previously turned down. We will contact affected customers as soon as possible.
If you have other questions that are not answered here, please approach your broker in the first instance.
