"Through DocuSign we aim to not only streamline the GIP claims journey, but also provide individuals with greater control, confidence and peace of mind"
Legal & General is introducing an electronic signature functionality to its group income protection claims process.
DocuSign eliminates the need to sign mandatory documents manually and send them via post, and L&G says it hopes the change will delivers a more efficient, simple and secure claims process for group income protection.
L&G says it introduced DocuSign following demand for a more digitised process.
Vanessa Sallows, benefits and governance director at Legal & General Group Protection, commented: “As a leading group protection provider, we understand the need to constantly innovate to meet the changing needs of our customers. We recognise that we live in an increasingly digital world, with expectations of an efficient, easy to use service which may not be met through a manual claims process, particularly when an individual is in ill-health. Through DocuSign we aim to not only streamline the GIP claims journey, but also provide individuals with greater control, confidence and peace of mind that the speed of an outcome will be achieved in line with their expectation.
“At Legal & General, we are committed to developing innovative technology to enhance our service offering and the addition of DocuSign is no exception.”
