A certified document is a copy signed and stamped by an authorised person who has checked it against the original document. In Australia, a range of authorised people in your community can complete this, including Medical Practitioners, Legal Practitioners, Court Officials, Justices of the Peace (JP), Full-time Primary or Secondary School Teachers, Pharmacists, Veterinarians and Police officers.

To certify your documents:

  1. Make copies of the original documents. If you don't have a photocopier, most newsagencies offer this service
  2. Take the original documents, such as your driver's licence, the insured's driver's licence or evidence of death and your copies to an authorised person to sight, stamp and certify your copies as true and original

Once you've submitted your claim, our team will guide you through the process from start to finish.

In accordance with the Insurance Contracts Act, 1984, the benefit amount must be paid to the nominated beneficiary.

If the policy doesn't have a nominated beneficiary, the claim is paid into the insured's estate and the claim will need to be updated with those details.

If the policy has a nominated beneficiary, but this person is now deceased, please contact us on 1300 996 143 to discuss options.

As the nominated beneficiary, you can use the lump sum payment however you wish.

This is the person that the claim payments are paid to when the claim is processed and approved.

If the policy doesn't have a nominated beneficiary, the claim is paid into the insured's estate and the claim will need to be updated with those details.

If the policy has a nominated beneficiary, but this person is now deceased, please contact us on 1300 996 143 to discuss options.

Any remaining people that are insured can continue to be covered under the policy. We'll change the policy to reflect the claim and send an updated policy schedule to the new policy owner. A primary insured may need to be determined if the current one is deceased.
