Centrestone Jewellery Insurance appreciates that sometimes circumstances beyond your control can make it difficult to meet all of your financial commitments. We’re committed to supporting customers facing financial hardship. Our Financial Hardship Policy can help you access support and services when you need them most.
HOW WE CAN SUPPORT YOU
If you’re in financial stress and are unable to pay money owed to us that is not a premium, we may — in certain circumstances — agree to:
• offer instalment payments
• delay or extend payment terms
• put the recovery of monies on hold
• release your debt (where appropriate)
• agree with you to pay a reduced lump sum amount
• deduct an excess from a claim amount
If you’re in financial stress and are unable to pay your premium, then we will work with you to see if we can support you to keep you covered. Support under the Financial Hardship Policy may include:
• offering instalment payments
• review your payment terms and dates
• providing you with a review of your policy cover
FLEXIBLE PAYMENT OPTIONS:
We provide flexible payment options if you’re experiencing financial difficulties, whether it’s a short-term issue or an ongoing problem.
We’ll allow you to enter into a payment arrangement, such as paying your debts on a weekly or fortnightly basis, as long the payment arrangement is reasonable given your circumstances.
Our staff receive ongoing training on how best to respond to your needs. All customers should expect to be treated with dignity and respect.
This policy is a living document, meaning that our Hardship Policy and our programs are continuously being reviewed and revised to ensure that they remain relevant and useful to you.
