Deceased estates

Losing a loved one
Coping with the loss of a loved one is one of life’s biggest challenges and can feel overwhelming. When someone passes away, it's important you notify us so their assets can continue to be protected. We’ve created this guide to help you manage any insurance policies connected with a deceased estate, so you have more space to grieve.
Email our customer service team with the following documentation. If possible, include all known policy numbers of the deceased person.

We require the following two documents:
  • A certified copy of the Grant of Letters of Administration or Grant of Probate
  • A certified copy of the Executor/Administrator photo identification

If you don’t have these documents, you can send us:

  • A certified copy of the death certificate
  • A certified copy of the will, if one was left
  • A certified copy of your photo identification
  • A letter from a solicitor stating:

a. you’re the Executor appointed under the will and a Grant of Probate is not being sought,


b. you’re the next of kin and would have been appointed as Administrator should a Grant of Letters of Administration been made but one is not being sought.

We may also require other documents in addition to the above.

It’s important to notify us your loved one has passed away so you can:
  • Cancel or replace the policy or policies
  • Request changes to the policy or policies
  • Make or extend payments
  • Make a claim, or continue to progress an existing one
  • Request a copy of the Certificate of Insurance
Once we’ve received all your documents, we’ll be able to process your request and come back to you within 10 working days.
