Your Dedicated
Claims Case Manager

Laura Ponting

I started work as an Income Protection Claims Case Manager in January 2015 after working at Zurich in various other departments for 5 years prior to this. I recently obtained my Claims Diploma.

My responsibilities include assessing and paying Income Protection claims as well as working as the rehabilitation staff and employers to try and return people back to work if they are well enough.

I enjoy being able to support people financially when they’re in a vulnerable position and also helping people to get better and back into work. It’s very rewarding being able to support with treatment and therapy when possible.

I’m here to work with you through the claims and rehabilitation process, if you have any questions at any time then please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me.

We appreciate how important it is to assess claims quickly and without fuss and that’s why we have a same day next day turnaround on all aspects of claims processing. We’ve also developed an innovative telephone based approach using eSignatures to remove the need for our customers to complete any paperwork.

I work closely with our Medical Rehabilitation Team and we can talk about the support that they can provide you and your employees, such as carrying out a rehabilitation assessment or helping to arrange a graded return to work. In some cases we can even arrange and fund treatment to help your employees return to work sooner.

I’ll agree a contact strategy with you to make sure that you get regular updates on any absences that you have notified to me including a weekly pipeline report to keep you up to date.

Below you will also find guides to our claims and rehabilitation services.

Accessing our rehabilitation or claims service is easy and starts with a simple call to me, my direct contact details are below.
