How long will payment for a life insurance claim take?

It varies, but once we’ve discussed the claim, we can usually estimate timescales. Once we've agreed to pay the claim and have everything we need, we’ll aim to pay out within five working days.

If you'd like to help make a future claim faster, you could consider placing your policy in a Trust. You can then decide who gets the payment if you die, so executors won’t need to be involved in the process.
