Making a claim
Register your mobile or gadget details

If your device is lost or stolen
- Sometimes mobile and/or gadgets are found and handed in to the police. For stolen mobiles or gadgets, you will need to obtain a police crime reference number as soon as you can. Assurant will require a police crime reference number before we can assess any claim for theft.
- Report the incident to your network provider to block the SIM card. You will be covered for unauthorised network charges up to 24 hours after the discovery of the loss or theft, so we recommend you do this as soon as possible.
