To make a claim, members need to complete and return their claim form as soon as possible.
We will assess our members’ claims (including those for COVID-19) in line with our standard procedures and in line with their individual plan.

“Omega Financial Management dg mutual approved broker.”
I claimed on the Day 1 Income Protection scheme for a period of time when I was unable to work and I found it to be an extremely beneficial to me. I was paid from the first day that I couldn’t work until I was able to return. The service was excellent, there was very little paperwork in claiming and I was supported by the guys on Omega really well. I’m happy to recommend this to any self employed professional.Susan
I broke my left humerus and had to take the best part of 6 months off work. I was very relieved that I had the Day 1 cover in place and I was paid from the very first day I couldn’t go to work until I returned fully six months later. The claims process itself was easy and Deirdre from Omega and Kevin in dg were extremely helpful. I found I could be honest with them and they would take my word for my progress, no need for medical reports and examinations. I was very glad I had the cover in place as I was able to pay all of my bills while I couldn’t work. I would highly recommend it to any self-employed professional Vet.Martin
I had to make a short term claim on my Day 1 policy for a brief illness that kept me out of work for a few days. I found everyone we dealt with in Omega and dg really helpful in processing the claim as quickly as possible. Having made a claim it gives me great peace of mind knowing that the policy does pay out and that we can rely on it if we ever need it again. I am very happy to recommend it to other Physiotherapists.Lorraine
