How do I renew a policy?
The system will generate renewal reminders 30 days prior to your client’s renewal date. The email will inform you of the best way to renew your policy through the website.
Express Renewal – at what point do I need to provide new information, if the client's circumstances have changed?
BizCover for Brokers offers brokers a one click renewal process called an ‘’Express Renewal’’. You will only need to confirm minimal information and then bind cover. This method uses all the previous year’s underwriting data to offer renewal terms and proceeds on the assumption that data remains accurate and meets duty of disclosure requirements (it is up to the broker to ensure that is the case). If your client’s services have changed significantly, you would like to have their information updated or they otherwise have additional information to disclose to the insurer as part of the renewal process, then you can manage this by pressing ‘’Renew’’ then ‘’Amend’’.
Why can’t I renew a policy?
If, for some reason, your client’s policy requires attention from our Relationship Manager, the renewal link will not be active. It may be because an underwriting guideline by an Insurer may have recently changed. If a policy renewal link is not active 30 days or less prior to expiry, please contact our team.
Why can’t I see a policy bound by someone else in my brokerage?
Policies created by a specific user are visible to that user only. If you need access to policies bound by others in your company, please contact us.
How do I close off access for a login or get a new login?
How do I make a claim?
BizCover For Brokers manage the claims process, so you do not need to deal with the individual insurers.

Simply email the completed form to our claims team at [email protected] – we will do the rest.
