Claim Process

A caring and compassionate claims process from a trusted global insurance provider

Our claims process
At MetLife, we’re committed to being there for our customers when they need us most, so we aim to pay every legitimate claim we receive quickly and with compassion and care.

We pride ourselves on delivering exceptional customer experiences and guiding customers through some of the most difficult moments in their lives.

So, we’ve created a process that puts the customers at its very heart – with claims handled expertly, sensitively and ethically.

We’re here to support you

In the event that you need to make a claim, we’ll make the process simple and seamless as possible.

Our approach is more than conducting a claims assessment. We tailor our approach to your specific needs and strive to acquire a comprehensive understanding of your lifestyle to establish any immediate and ongoing support.

Your own dedicated case manager will personally guide you throughout your claim. 

Need to make a claim?

For claims under a policy held by your superannuation fund or your employer, in order to make a claim you need to firstly contact your superannuation or employer fund to notify them of your claim and request a claim form.

Your employer or superfund will talk you through the next steps.

For claims on a policy obtained through your financial adviser, contact your adviser or you can notify Metlife directly.

Once MetLife has received your completed claim form and supporting documents, your Case Manager will contact you directly within 10 business days to explain what to expect during the process, including your anticipated time frames.
