Why Zurich?

Insurance is all about protecting the things that matter most to you. It is a unique concept - most people would like to have it, but would prefer not to ever use it. That's especially true with life insurance.

When you invest in protecting your family's future you want to feel secure you made the right choice. You want to know should the time ever come to make a claim that your insurer is going to be there to pay your claim, quickly and with empathy and sensitivity.

That's why people choose Zurich!

  • A brand you can trust
  • The financial strength to be there when you most need us
  • commitment to paying claims quickly, sensitively and transparently
  • Quality cover that is simple to apply for

  • Friendly, helpful, Australian-based staff

Superior claims service

Zurich Australia's commitment to paying claims as promptly, fairly and transparently as possible has helped us achieve a well earned reputation for superior claims service.

Our philosophy is to find ways to pay claims, not ways to deny them.

A reputation for quality and value

Choosing the right insurance becomes easier when you are dealing with an insurer you know and can trust to place as much importance on quality and value as you do.

Zurich is such an insurer.

We also know that the period in your life when you most need cover is often the period when you can least afford it, which is why we are just as committed to providing real value for money (without compromising on quality).

Easy to deal with

Because your time is precious, you'll appreciate an insurer who makes it easy to get the information you need and the help you want.

We are committed to fast, accurate, attentive service across our business, including our Australian based call centre, where calls are answered promptly and in person (we don't rely on complex 'push button' menus). The team is there to answer any questions and to assist if you would like to apply online.
