  • What happens when I make a claim?

    Once your claim is lodged with CGU, they will allocate a claims consultant who will contact you with the next step. Your claims consultant will keep you informed about your claim's progress along the way.

    CGU will give you a claim number which will be your ongoing reference to the claim. You can use this reference for all claims enquiries when providing information to CGU on your claim.

    Some claims are simple, but others are more involved - either way, you can be sure that CGU will be working as quickly and efficiently as possible to process your claim.
