Strong history of claims payments

There's been a lot of change in the last few years, but one thing that hasn’t is our supportive approach to claims. We're proud of our customer-centric claims approach and strong claims track record, which is backed-up by the claims we paid in 2021.

  • Last year, Royal London Group paid 99.5%* of all claims and over €760 million** in total claims payouts.
  • In Ireland, we paid 99.2% of all claims, totalling over €43.4 million in claims payouts.^
