“AIG approached £100 million in Life and Critical Illness Insurance payouts in 2019, an impressive figure. It highlights that AIG is one of the major insurers responsible for helping individuals and their families up and down the country at their time of need.
“These figures of course don’t include the support on offer from AIG’s additional benefits service, Smart Health, which includes a remote GP service that has helped thousands of policyholders access the healthcare they need at a time that suits them.”
