What you'll need

It doesn't take long to claim on your home insurance, so we can get you back to normal. We'll just want to know what happened and when, plus what you're claiming for. We'll let you know your excess, level of cover and the approximate value of your claim, where possible.

To check what your home insurance covers you for, either look through your printed policy, if you have a paper copy, or you can find your documents in MyAviva.

What to expect

We’ve made it quick and easy to make a home claim. Here’s how it works.

Step 1

Tell us what happened

Make your claim online, unless it's an emergency. You will need to tell us some details about what’s happened and it should take less than 10 minutes.

Step 2

We'll assess the details

One of our claim experts will review the details. We can arrange for specialist contractors or surveyors to visit your home if needed. And whether your claim is simple or complex, we’ll be working hard to put things right.

Step 3

You get back to normal

We always settle claims quickly where we can, offering cash payment, vouchers or replacement products. Where that’s not possible we’ll let you know what’s happening and how long it will take.
