in this week’s Everything you need to know, we bring together a summary of different insurers approach to the process of claiming on a plan.

The point at which a person needs to make a claim on a protection policy is the point at which the insurer will really show their spots. If the process is simple, quick and as stress free as possible the whole industry shines. If there is unnecessary friction in the process then the beneficiary of the policy can be left with a bad impression. We’ve done all the research to save you time and in this week’s ‘Everything you need to know’ we bring together a summary of how different insurers approach the process of claiming on a plan.
