Craig Paterson, Interim Chief Underwriter at Royal London responds to ABI figures which show £90m has been paid by insurers to help families cope with coronavirus deaths.

“At Royal London we have paid out claims to families of more than 1,200 customers as a result of deaths due to Covid-19, with the value of the claims totalling around £8.5m.

"Receiving a payout can help to ease the financial strain of bereavement, however money can’t always ease the emotional strain. Our Helping Hand service offered through all of our protection policies is available to customers and their families, so they can receive the emotional support they need to help them through this difficult time.”
