A total of 11.2 thousand applications were received, of which 96% and 99% were settled in accordance with individual and group plans, respectively. The average payout on individual policies was £13,100 and group policies - £74,600.

“No one has been affected more by the pandemic than the families of those killed by Covid. While no amount of money can ever replace life, insurers have done and continue to do whatever they can to help families financially cope with these difficult and tumultuous times,” commented Yvonne Brown, ABI spokesperson.
