Service Standards
For a homeowner, the first step may be preventing further damage or securing temporary living quarters. For a business, it may involve finding ways to remain open or in production to meet deadlines. There will be times when our policyholders need emergency funds. In many instances Chubb Insurance can step forward immediately with an advance claim payment. In all other cases, it is our standard to issue payment within 48 hours of agreement to pay.

Prompt service is our goal. To help, we utilise computer and telecommunications networks to enhance our ability to respond to policyholders' claims. However, we view technology as an aid in serving policyholders, not as a replacement for personal contact.

Responses from Chubb Insurance customers
