Our Claims Team

Our team are truly dedicated to helping you with your claim and doing all they can to make things as straight-forward as possible. They care about your experience and your wellbeing and they can make all the different at claim time. 

Our Decisions

Sometimes, a policy doesn’t support the payment of a claim. If that’s the case, we’ll let you know straight-away and explain why. And of course, if you disagree with our decision, you can draw on our claims review process that ensures all our decisions can be independently reviewed.

How to make a claim

You can make a claim on your Asteron Life policy by speaking to your financial adviser or calling us directly on 1800 024 812. 

We’ll send you a claims kit that includes details of all the information we’ll need. Once you’ve completed the claims kit documents and sent them back to us, your dedicated claims manager can start assessing the claim.

We’ll let you know the outcome of the assessment as soon as we can and pay your benefit if the claim is accepted.
