How to claim

Contact the Office Manager at the DofE Head Office in Windsor. A claim form and additional questionnaire will then be issued to the insured person. The form should then be completed and returned to the Office Manager. The form is then checked and forwarded to the insurance company. Having provided any additional information the insurance company requires a settlement will then be calculated and a cheque issued. The cheque will usually be issued by the insurance company direct to the insured person.
