If the matter is not settled to your satisfaction after discussion with the claims advisor, please contact our Customer Ombudsman.
Customer Ombudsmen handle all correction requests related to insurance contracts and claim settlement decisions under voluntary insurance policies, independent of previous handlers.
However, the Customer Ombudsman cannot handle correction requests for claim settlement decisions under statutory insurance policies, such as motor liability insurance or statutory workers' compensation insurance. Correction requests under statutory insurance policies are handled by other complaint-handling or appeal bodies. In matters concerning insurance contracts, the Customer Ombudsman can process requests related to all insurance policies, including statutory ones.
Fast and independent investigation
In response to a customer’s request, our Customer Ombudsmen investigate whether the claim settlement decision is in line with applicable laws, the insurance terms and conditions, the insurance contract, legal praxis and general compensation praxis. Customer Ombudsmen investigating the validity of the claim are independent of the earlier processing of the case.
The service is free of charge.
In addition to – or instead of – the Customer Ombudsman, you can always contact the Finnish Financial Ombudsman Bureau and other external complaint-handling or appeal bodies.
How to make a correction request for a claim settlement decision
Fill in and send the correction request form online. You do not have to send any receipts and other documents. The Customer Ombudsman will request them if necessary. The Customer Ombudsman will review all documents related to the claim and contact you.
The correction request must include
- name and contact information
- personal ID or business ID
- claim code
- how the decision should be changed
- the grounds for your request
If the Customer Ombudsman believes that the decision should be changed based on your request, he will re-submit the case for claims handling. If the decision cannot be changed, the Customer Ombudsman will explain the grounds for his decision.
You can also send your correction request by post, email or fax. See contact information.
If you do not find the Customer Ombudsman's decision satisfactory or you do not wish to make the correction request through the Customer Ombudsman, you can contact other complaint-handling or appeal bodies. The claim settlement decision is accompanied by written guidance on how to file a complaint or an appeal.
