Get your voice heard

You can be certain that you’re talking to the right person at the right time. We automatically connect you to contacts at thousands of household names, ombudsmen and regulators to find a resolution.

Based on resolver’s experience to date, it can be very stressful when you disagree with your insurers findings as to a settlement. If you disagree with the claim findings you should contact your insurer and write giving clear details of your case - such as what happened, when, and why you think you think the conclusion is inaccurate. Their customer services team should assure you that they will contact you within a timeframe with an update regarding your dispute.

If this semi-formal approach fails to resolve your issues with the level of settlement that you are offered then you can make an appeal through the formal appeals process of your insurer. resolver recommends that you submit your concern in writing, and resolver can assist you in submitting, recording and reminding you when and who to escalate to. You should retain a copy of the letter, and send all correspondence by recorded mail. Details of how to make a formal appeal will be found on your policy documents, or on your insurer's website.

A last resort is to contact the Ombudsman, which will act as a mediator in your case. resolver recommends that you submit your concern in writing and resolver can assist you in submitting, recording and reminding you when and who to escalate to.

Your complaint has to be less than 9 months old to be escalated to the Ombudsman.
