Claims over a life insurance policy can be done in the following events:
- Critical or permanent illness or permanent disability
- Death Claims
- Waiver of Premiums
Critical or permanent illness or permanent disabilityIn the unfortunate event that the policyholder becomes critically ill or sustain permanent disability, their life insurance policy may come of a great help. The critical illnesses or the permanent liabilities need to be established first before placing the claim request. You will need a medical doctor’s report to establish your permanent disability or critical illness.

- Once you receive the death certificate, you can contact us for the claim form or even download or submit it online from our website.
- You have to submit the original policy documents along with the claim form and death certificate.
These are the basic 3 steps you need to follow while placing a life insurance claim with us.

Generally, the insurance premium becomes a part of the deceased’s estate and according to the will. It will be processed. In case, the will was not prepared, the process will take a little longer, as you have to establish that you are the rightful claimant of the deceased. This may include some court procedures too.
In the UK, life insurance policy can be written in trust so that it will be processed faster. Even though it is not common and not recommendable to all, you can check the options before you insure your life.
Waiver of PremiumIn the case where the policyholder has opted for a Premium Protection option, the policyholder can request for waiver of premium claiming that he or she is unable to work due to medical grounds. With proper medical certificates and records, such requests for qualifying life insurance policies will be considered and when they are found legible, further premiums are waived off.
