Claims Process

Above and beyond.

Every claim is surrounded by fear, sadness and uncertainty.

So, we handle each one with understanding and efficiency.

  1. Call and register the claim

    Firstly, if you need to make a claim, please call:

    0808 173 1821

    Once you've called, a member of our Claims Team will complete the claim form with you over the phone.
    They'll then process your claim and keep you informed every step of the way.

Claims support service

For us, a claim is about much more than a prompt payout.

It's also about providing invaluable support to you and your loved ones when you need it most.

That's why we created HALO.

Introducing an extraordinary claims service, because there's no such thing as an ordinary claim.

At Guardian, we don’t have a set list of additional services when you claim. HALO is much more personal.

Our Claims Team listen to your concerns and use their experience to identify the exact help that is needed, then make it happen.

In most cases, the entire cost of the help offered is covered by the policy.

All claims are unique.

That's why we created HALO.

It's a truly personal approach designed to help more families in more ways.
