Policyholders’ insurance cover will stay in place during this period.

For any valid disability claims accepted during the wait period and arising from the earthquakes, Fidelity Life will make an early payment of the insured’s first monthly benefit during the wait period if there is known or perceived hardship.

This relief package is available on application to clients in the Wellington, Marlborough and North Canterbury regions who meet the hardship criteria. Some people may also be affected in neighbouring regions and support will be extended to those who meet the hardship criteria in Wairarapa, Manawatu, the West Coast and Canterbury on a case-by-case basis.

“Our thoughts are with our advisers, policyholders and their families following yesterday’s devastating earthquakes in Wellington and the South Island,” chief executive Nadine Tereora said.

“A number of our policyholders will be experiencing hardship in the weeks and months ahead and we would like to extend a helping hand to our advisers and their clients over this time of uncertainty.”

Advisers should contact their BDM or Fidelity Life's customer service team for help.

Well done Fidelity. And well done Partners Life, for already having a premium holiday of up to six-months built into its wordings, for terrible situations such as this.
