The following information is correct as of 11th May 2021.

The insurance and long-term savings industry has worked hard to support customers and the wider community across the UK throughout the pandemic. Insurers know it has been an incredibly difficult time for many people. Their main priority has been to ensure customers continue to have claims paid, to provide clear and up-to-date information as well as doing everything in their power to keep their operations running as fully as possible.

Following the first national lockdown in March 2020, the industry pro-actively agreed a series of pledges to support and assist customers across a range of insurance lines including home, motor, travel, pet insurance, health and protection. Insurers have also offered policy extensions and been flexible with customers wherever possible during this unprecedented period.

As restrictions have changed, the customer pledges have been kept under review and amended accordingly.

Here you can find the latest advice, guidance and common questions relating to insurance and long-term savings products and the impact of Covid-19.
