Brexit - an update for our policyholders
We do not believe that the UK leaving the European Union (EU) would affect our ability to administer your policy, regardless of where you reside. In the event that we do leave the EU, we expect to be able to continue to pay benefits due under all of our policyholders' policies.
You do not therefore need to take any action at this time.
