‘Claims made’ is a term used to describe an insurance policy that covers claims during the policy term – not necessarily when the alleged incident occurred.

This is because advice or service errors in many professions are often discovered weeks, months, or even years after the mistake was made.

Therefore, a professional indemnity policy – or 'run-off' policy – must be in place for a claim to be met by an insurer.

This policy also applies to changes to the limit of indemnity.

Our team can provide support and proactively guide clients through the claims process.

You can contact your Marsh representative. They’ll help you with lodging a claim.
