Understanding your loss record (November 2014)

From November 2014 the loss record format available to Members via Underwriting Online has been improved for ease of reading.  

The loss record helps to gauge the likely level of risk that a Member brings to the Club.  

The loss record format provided to Members is expressed on a scale of 100 per cent. This change in presentation does not change any claims or premium data. The record states the overall financial position with the Club.   Members and their brokers can access these loss records either using the iPandi app for Apple iPad tablets, or through any conventional web browser via Underwriting Online in the Members Area.  

This latest edition (November 2014) has been given some detail changes in presentation to better explain these statements and a clarification as to how and why the Club uses the loss record.  

Specific questions about individual circumstances naturally arise, and owners and brokers are encouraged to contact the underwriting department: underwriting.ukclub@thomasmiller.com
