In the unfortunate event you or your family ever need to make a claim on your policy, all legitimate Simple Life claims are processed as soon as possible.
It’s important that you or your representative call us on 13 3982 as soon as possible after the claim event occurs. If you’re overseas, you may need to return to Australia at your own expense for the claim assessment. When you return, you’ll need to be under the immediate care of a doctor. If you’re in Australia, you’ll receive some claims forms, which you need to return along with any supporting evidence and information.
You’ll need to provide all the necessary medical evidence and you might also need to undergo some additional medical examinations or tests as part of the claim assessment.
In some cases, access to your medical records and test results may be needed to independently check the existence and extent of an illness, injury or other event.
