What to do if you’re experiencing difficulty

Experiencing financial hardship? If you need to make a payment to CHU and think you may have trouble, or are finding it difficult to meet repayments, please let us know as soon as possible so we can consider the most appropriate options to assist you. We understand situations can sometimes arise that make it difficult to meet all of your financial commitments. If you feel you’re facing financial hardship, the following process highlights how you can get in touch with us to request assistance. We will consider every request for assistance on an individual basis and will work with you to develop a solution tailored to you circumstances.

Family and Domestic Violence Support

Family and domestic violence is a complex issue that CHU takes seriously. Family and domestic violence refers to violent, threatening, or abusive behaviour where an abuser seeks to dominate, coerce or control the other person, often an intimate family member or partner. If you’re experiencing family and domestic violence, please read our Family Domestic Violence Customer Support Policy. 

Claims support

If you need help with an existing claim, please contact your Claims Officer directly. If you need to make a claim, please visit our Claims page or contact our claims team.

Interpreter services

CHU Underwriting Agencies offer customers access to interpreter services in over 160 languages and dialects from native and accredited language practitioners.

If you have an existing claim or complaint and need access to an interpreter, please contact your Claims Officer or Dispute Resolution Officer directly or email our Customer Service team on
