INSURANCE. Boring, right? People often sigh at the word insurance. That’s because the experience with insurance is completely out of sync with the way the world and technology has progressed and quite frankly I’m sick of it. Can you believe paperwork is still the industry norm? When I think of insurance I picture long contracts I don’t understand, a lack of transparency and difficulty in communication with the companies.
I’m not the only one, more and more young people share this opinion. Engagement between young people and insurance is continuing to decrease year on year. While mandatory services like car insurance are still comparable to the older generations, fewer own a policy in life or home cover. I recently watched this video showcasing the work of a great charity organization 7families. They provide people who have lost everything the same financial support that they would have received if they were covered with insurance. It’s an emotional watch and quickly hits how fortunate we are but how quickly your life can change and the financial strains that come with something so tragic.
Insurance won’t protect you from terrible things happening in your life, but it will help overcome some of these unfortunate moments. Having the safety net of an insurance policy allows you to live your life more freely without those worries. At the heart of it insurance is actually an amazing product – but what’s happened?
The big companies have completely failed in connecting with young people and making them aware of the value on offer. People want simplicity, transparency and convenience. I don’t want to spend hours reading through documents full of terminology that confuses me. I want something that’s at the reach of my fingertips and available in minutes, that i clearly understand and have confidence in. In my new role as the Chief Customer Officer at ONE, i want to make sure that we design insurance for the people. According to a study of Gallup this is what people want and this is what we will offer at ONE.

The easiest way to make a Claim
We hope you never have to file a claim with us, however if you do, ONE is there for you. Our claims specialists are working around the clock to assist you and strive to settle claims in as little as three minutes.
Should I make a claim for every incident? – Although this is a personal decision, consider the value of the damage compared to your deductible before making an insurance claim. If the difference is negligible, you may choose not to make a claim, especially if it means losing your claims free bonus points. See how our Bonus System works.
