Claims at TAL
Every claim we pay is a promise kept
Last financial year we paid $2.7 billion in claims to 39,628 customers. That’s equivalent to over $52 million a week.
People often think claims are all about payments to families when a loved one passes away. And of course, that's part of what we do. But 71% of all the claims we paid last year were to help customers keep living the lives they love, after an accident or illness.
