Norwich Union to advise customers on full disclosure

Date Class
22nd Jun 2006 Good Ethical Practice
Leading insurance provider Norwich Union has said that it will be introducing a factsheet for customers to underscore the need for completing insurance application forms in full.

Applicants who do fail to disclose certain facts which could affect their insurance's validity could run into problems when they have to claim, the company said.

Norwich Union hopes to reduce the number of claims rejected as a result of non-disclosure of information when it releases the fact sheet today (Friday, 23 June).

"Most people buy insurance products to protect them and their family in the event of something unforeseen happening," said Tony Jupp, chief underwriter at Norwich Union.

"However, an insurer can provide cover for people only where they have all the information they asked for on the application form," he continued. "With the introduction of this information sheet, we are underlining the importance of completing application forms carefully."
