Of all the questions that are asked by family members and friends, the most one tend to be this: how do I submit a claim request from my insurer/how to DIY? This is especially common given the poor (or lack of) service provided by the agent once the sale is completed. Contrary to popular beliefs, it’s important to note that the agent who sold you the insurance policy may not be legally bound to assist you in your claims. It is hence imperative to understand the claims process and do it yourself, if necessary.
As we dive deeper into the realm of insurance, one approach that’s gaining momentum is direct insurance. This modern approach allows consumers like us to purchase insurance policies directly from providers, bypassing the traditional intermediaries like agents or brokers. It’s like having a direct line to your insurance needs, accessible from the comfort of your digital devices. With it, there are also pros and cons of this new distribution channel.
