What you need to know.


The ever-changing Covid-19 landscape has brought uncertainty to many New Zealanders trying to plan for the future. No matter what lockdown level were at, Eric James & Associates are here for you.

First, the most important thing: If you had cover in place prior to lockdown absolutely nothing has change. You are still covered as per normal and your policy will remain the same.

If you have lost employment there are also still ways that you can stay insured. The majority of insurers we deal with have premium relief options available for those who have recently experienced a loss of employment, reduction in hours and income or a dramatic change in their circumstances.

If you have any questions, be it about maintaining an existing policy or taking out a new insurance policy during the Covid-19 lockdown stages, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. We are always ready to talk things through.

That’s because our level of personalised service will remain unchanged no matter what level of lockdown New Zealand might be at. As we are deemed an essential service we’re working hard to keep everything ‘business as usual’ here at Eric James & Associates. While we have needed to operate remotely during levels 3 and 4 of lockdown, online meetings and phone appointments means everything still works efficiently.

For both current and potential clients this means they can access important insurance guidance and advice and plan and apply any policy changes quickly and easily.
