We know our clients may find themselves in circumstances, at different times in their lives, where they may be especially susceptible to loss, harm or disadvantage, and therefore may need extra support. Vulnerability can be temporary or ongoing, and can affect anyone at any time, due to a range of factors including but may not be limited to:
- Financial distress/hardship
- Family or Domestic Violence
- Mental or physical health conditions
- Language and/or literacy barriers
- Remote locations and isolation
- Natural disasters and catastrophic events
At Aon, we are committed to recognising and supporting customers experiencing vulnerability to ensure that you are provided with the service you need. Aon will work with you or your representative to identify how best to provide support.
