“I was super impressed with how everything went with my claim. It was the first time I have had to make a claim and I was unsure how to proceed. I rang the call center and the operator clearly explained everything to me as well and sending an email to me with the necessary paperwork and reply email address. Once I recorded everything and sent away my claim, the turn-around time was good and claim approved. Very pleased with service.”
