Grief Support

We're here to help look after what matters most.

We understand that a Life Insurance claim is made during an incredibly emotional and difficult time. You’ve trusted us to take care of you and your loved ones during this time, and we want to do just that. 

We have a dedicated Grief Support service available to:

  • immediate family members of a loved one who has become terminally ill or passed away, and/or
  • customers who may have recently been diagnosed with a terminal illness.

We have partnered with a specialist external provider Assure Programs, to help our customers and their families with the understanding, care and resources that may be needed to help navigate this time.

Customers can access our Grief Support service: 

  • if Life Insurance was purchased directly with TAL, through a  Financial Adviser or provided through a participating TAL superannuation fund partner,
  • if you are the Life Insured or are an immediate family member* of the Life Insured,
  • up to 12 months from date of claim or diagnosis, and
  • book up to three sessions through our dedicated TAL provider.**

Money only goes so far, that’s why we’re here to help you look after what matters most. Because when you choose TAL, you choose an insurer who cares. We’re in this one together.
