Manchester Claims Association

Manchester Claims association

A forum for those involved in insurance claims to discuss matters of mutual interest.

Who we are

A membership organisation open to claims professionals within insurance companies, loss adjusters, lawyers and other claims handling operations and support services based in and around Greater Manchester.

Founded about 30 years ago (originally just for insurance claims managers, but latterly extended to include the wider claims community), it provides a forum for those involved in insurance claims to discuss matters of mutual interest, involving the local market or claims handling generally.

Our Committee

Our members are drawn from a broad range  of insurance companies and claims operations around  Manchester and the surrounding area.

Honorary members can be found on this page.
