AIG in their own words

“At AIG, we’re experts in providing life insurance products to our customers and protect the lives of over one million people. Everything we do is designed to help make protection as easy and as accessible as possible, and our individual protection options are designed to reduce the financial impact caused by death, illness or injury. And because we work with people experiencing some of the toughest times they’ll ever go through, all of our products include value added services as standard – extra support for no extra cost.

For us, it’s about looking after customers’ futures, families and finances, offering the one form of insurance that is entirely about looking after the people we love. Because the best things we do in life, we do for others.

We’re here for your CPD needs too. Built with you in mind, AIG Life Support is a simple online learning system with a range of CPD content, including podcasts and webinars. The learning modules bring you insights and advice to help you stay ahead of your profession and are available on desktop, tablet and mobile – learn where and when it suits you.  For every module you complete, we’ll provide you with a certificate as evidence. Tick off your 15 hours learning with modules such as Introduction to Trusts, Objection Handling and Relevant Life. “

Areas for improvement

  • Could offer a more simple low cost income protection proposition to compliment the low start products
  • Would like to see more of the Smart Health services avalable within the app (currently only consultations are available with the other services available within the online portal via a web browser)
  • Would like to see more detailed claims statistics across the different products (especially critical illness)
