Important update to Group Protection forms
On the 25 May 2018 the new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) will come into force.
What you need to know
From 25 May 2018 it’s important to use the latest versions of our forms
Our medical underwriting forms and many of our claim forms ask employees to provide medical and health information. These now include:
- Where needed, a separate section asking for their consent to access medical reports
- A separate section requesting their explicit consent to allow us to process this information.
Using the latest versions of these forms will help insured employees understand their data rights, and helps us to process medical underwriting and claims without delay or inconvenience.
We recommend you go to our literature library each time you need a form.
As our key literature is online, wherever possible, we replace old forms and literature with the new version at the same web address (URL). You may want to save a hyperlink to the forms you frequently access to avoid the risk of saving a local copy that may go out of date.
GDPR information for employers
Our GDPR Leaflet explains our role as Data Controller when providing Group Protection insurance. It also answers some common questions that employers may have about our GDPR responsibilities.
