Introducing the new Foresters online claims system
One of the features we get asked about the most is online death claims. Now that the new and improved Foresters Financial website is up and running, we’re happy to say that this feature is now available.
The process to make a claim online is very simple.
You will need:
· Access to the internet and the Foresters Financial website
· The details of the deceased member
· Your own details / details of the funeral director making the claim
· Relevant documentation – e.g. cause of death
· A scanner
To begin, simply navigate to the ‘make a claim’ button towards the top right of the Foresters website.
Once you’ve made it to the claim page, you will see an online form that requests the same details as are typically provided on the Foresters hard copy claim form. Any fields marked with a red asterisk are mandatory and must be completed.
You will also be asked to complete a declaration to confirm that the information you are providing is true and correct.
Once you have filled out the details of the deceased member and the details of the funeral director making the claim, you can then use the form to attach scanned documents – such as the required cause of death documentation, or perhaps an invoice for costs.
Once the form is filled out and the required documentation is attached, you’re all done – just click submit! The contents of the form and the attached documents will be transmitted directly to the claims staff at Foresters who will begin working on your claim promptly.
Please keep in mind that online claiming is not mandatory! If you prefer to fill out the usual form and submit your claim using the current process, please continue to do so. Online claiming is just another option for those who would like their claim dealt with in a slightly faster manner.
