What should we tell clients?
SUA has produced a client fact sheet to assist you to explain the change and to answer any questions your clients may have in relation to their policy. This can be accessed from the dedicated information page

Will there be any changes to policy coverage?
There will be some changes to coverage to all SUA policies. Due to these changes we recommend that you read the new policy wordings underwritten by AIG to ensure that they meet your clients’ insurance needs.

Will there be an increase to policy premiums due to the change in insurer?
Any change in your policy premium is not as a result of change of insurer. Any premium increases reflect rising inflation, increased reinsurance costs or other underwriting consideration (for example, claims history).

Who will handle claims?
All claims will be managed by a dedicated SUA claims team within AIG. Further information on claims contacts can be accessed at

What do I need to do?
SUA will inform you in writing within 14 days of your clients’ policy expiry date.  Based on our standard underwriting guidelines, SUA will assess each expiring policy and a new policy underwritten by AIG may be offered. 
The policy invitation should be reviewed to verify the details and advise SUA of any amendments required. Due to the change of underwriter, we are unable to rely on disclosure statements previously provided by your client. In order to provide your client with coverage under the new SUA policy we require you to inform your client of their duty of disclosure obligations and advise us if the information previously provided by your client is incorrect.
For all policies incepting on or after 1 April 2017, you will need to provide your clients with a copy of the new policy wording and advise in writing of the change in underwriter and their duty of disclosure obligations.

Where can I access the SUA policy wordings underwritten by AIG?
The policy wordings will be available to download online at

Will there be any change in the people I deal with?
No. You will continue to deal with the SUA management and underwriting team and all contact details remain unchanged.
