We pay thousands of claims every year – in fact in 2014 we paid over 2,000 claims, worth over €218 million. From experience we know that making a specified illness or life cover claim can seem daunting at an already difficult time.

Every month we independently research how satisfied our customers are with the service they received. Over the last year they scored our claims service 89.2% for customer satisfaction. (Source: The Leadership Factor, January - December 2014).
