Claims are our specialty

Your SME clients want to stay up and running

We know SMEs can’t afford to stop trading while they wait for indemnity decisions to be made. That’s why we make it easier for you to keep your clients happy with an easy and quick claims process.

Here’s a couple of ways we can help.

Quick claims

With Vero OneTouch, SME Package claims up to $10,000 can be lodged and settled within 15 minutes at your first point of contact with Vero*. Our aim is to settle straightforward claims quickly.

If the claim is more complex, we’ll work hand-in-hand with you and the client to ensure it is processed as efficiently as possible. Anything to help your clients get back to business sooner.

Dedicated Claims Officers

We assign an Australian based Claims Officer to manage your client’s claim from start to finish. This single point of contact means we can quickly answer questions and ensures that your client’s needs are well met.

With direct phone access to the assigned Claims Officer, there is no need for brokers to call our main claims line once a claim is lodged.
