The coronavirus pandemic has presented itself as a global crisis and is completely unprecedented. This has created extremely challenging circumstances for us all from a health, wealth & economic perspective.
Since Monday 23rd March we have been following the Government advice to avoid non-essential business travel and avoid social contact by implementing the Remote Working part of our Business Continuity Plan. Existing telephone lines and e-mail addresses will remain functional and we’re doing our best to maintain service levels, however, please bear in mind that we do not have instant access to all of our files.
We would strongly recommend you familiarise yourself with the advice and information provided by the UK Government on www.gov.uk/coronavirus Here you will find useful advice on how to protect yourself and others, employment & financial support, details surrounding school closures and childcare, businesses and other organisations, healthcare workers and carers, travel and public services.
ABI & BIBA Guidance
We would also advise you to have a look at the guidance being provided by the two main insurance industry associations.
There is a useful section on The Association of British Insurers (ABI) website.
There is also a useful article on The British Insurance Brokers’ Association (BIBA) website outlining basic stance from the insurance industry relating to COVID 19.
