Allianz extends free counselling service to flood affected customers

24 June 2021

We recognise that the impact of natural disasters can leave people vulnerable and can have a significant impact on an individual’s mental health. 

If you have been impacted by the recent floods you and your immediate family can access free, confidential counselling support.

Allianz is offering a free counselling service to flood affected customers until 19 October 2021.

Counselling sessions are handled by Assure Programs to help customers through the immediate trauma and crisis.

  • Calls to Assure Programs are free and confidential. Bookings can be made 24/7 on 1800 955 599.
  • This free service gives Allianz customers and their immediate family members affected by flood related events, access to experienced and independent mental health support.
  •  Counselling sessions can be accessed over the phone or face-to-face at over 400 locations across Australia before 19 October 2021.
  • Simply confirm you are an Allianz customer or family member to book a session.
  • Accessing this support will not affect customers’ claims, nor will any personal information be shared with Allianz.

Who are Assure Programs? How can they help?
