How we're supporting you during coronavirus
For our Customers:
Our phone services have been temporarily suspended due to the impact of coronavirus. This is to protect the overall health of our workplace, our staff, their friends and family, and to make sure we’re able to continue looking after our customers throughout this uncertain period. We’ve got a new system on order and hope to be back on the phone as soon as possible.
Although the phones will be down for a little longer yet, we’ve switched our phone teams into the digital channels, so your best option is to use the live chat function here on our website, or get us via email through our contact form. Opening hours will remain the same. We’ll be here from 8am to 6pm AEST to assist you with any questions or queries you may have. We’re still processing your claims - that’s what we’re here for - so feel free to submit those online.
