Q: What will happen with my existing policy?

A: When your existing Allianz insurance policy is due for renewal, we will migrate your policy to our new insurance provider CGU. We will be working closely with CGU to make sure that this is a seamless process for you.

If you’d prefer not to change to CGU and remain with Allianz, please contact us when you receive your renewal documents to advise us of your decision.

Q: Why haven’t I been contacted about the change yet?

A: We have posted the announcement on our website advising members of our new insurance provider, CGU. However, this is a big change for the business and our members and will take some time to roll out the change.

We need to follow a process to make sure that each of our members understand the move and what it means to them. The best time to make the change is as your policy comes up for renewal, so that we can provide you with the appropriate information about your new policy. You’ll be contacted approximately four weeks before your policy is due to renew.

Q: What if I have multiple policies?

A:  You’ll be contacted at renewal for each individual policy. Depending on your renewal dates, this may mean you receive multiple notices throughout the year.

Q: Will I be required to change my policy to CGU when my policy comes up for renewal?

A: No. We will be offering our members the opportunity to switch, as we believe that CGU will provide our members with excellent value and protection, you will have the choice to stay with your existing provider. If you do prefer to stay with Allianz, we will be able to assist you with contacting Allianz to maintain your cover with them. If that is your preference, please contact us prior to your renewal date.

Q: What if I want to make changes to my Allianz policy before it moves to CGU?

A: You can still make changes or amendments to your policy. After the changeover date on 1 November 2021 for the new provider, we will direct you through to Allianz for any policy updates or amendments.

We’re here to help, so if you have any further question, please call our Contact Centre on 1300 228 228.
