ClaimTamer is part of the Sonneco initiative as a responsible insurer, encouraging resilience against disasters, instead of profiting off an increase of premiums as natural disasters occur more often.

The information used in ClaimTamer for public use is de-identified, anonymised data, carefully filtered to give you an idea of the damage caused in your area by weather events, without being able to personally identify or be identified. We understand some events are quite unique and you may feel these are too close to a personal claim you have made, please contact us for further information.
