Specialised Firm Helping Australians in Getting Their Entitled Payout!

Claims Advocacy was founded by Anuj Shangle, a seasoned finance professional with a 20-year successful career in financial planning behind him. During this time, he successfully co-founded, managed and ran a financial services business for ten years, where he helped hundreds of clients achieve their financial and retirement goals.

Holding a Bachelor degree in Commerce, in addition to being an MBA graduate from the prestigious Edith Cowan University (Perth), in 2000, Anuj brings a wealth of knowledge to Claims Advocacy. He also is a Certified Financial Planner® and a Self Managed Super Fund Specialist Advisor™.

With a strong knowledge of the financial sector and how insurers operate, he became increasingly concerned about how thousands of Australians who were entitled to some form of personal risk insurance payout due to accident, disability or injury were missing out. This compelled him to form Claims Advocacy, a specialist firm founded to ensure every client would get the payout that was rightfully theirs.

Expertise in “Difficult” Cases

The team at Claims Advocacy understand how difficult it is for people to fight insurance companies for a payout on their policy, particularly when they’re struggling to recover from an injury or illness. Life is stressful enough at such times, which is why Claims Advocacy tries to ease the burden by taking on all aspects of the claims process.

From challenging incorrect decisions by insurers (we are used to using the Internal Dispute Resolution (IDR), and Australian Financial Complaints Authority (AFCA) appeals processes to challenge decisions to refuse payouts), through to fighting for clients whose claim has been declined based on a technicality, we will take on the difficult cases that others may not wish to consider.

Family Run with an Emphasis on Support

Claims Advocacy is a family-run business that puts our clients at the heart of what we do. We believe that every client deserves to be given a high-quality service from professionals who are experts in their field. With a background in dealing with finance paperwork, Anuj has an excellent understanding of the small print contained in insurance policies. This means that Claims Advocacy can often find the wording in your policy that ensures you’re eligible for a payout.

Our Team

Our team consists of experienced professionals, each of whom brings a wealth of talent, skills and experience to Claims Advocacy. Every member of the team is committed to ensuring our clients not only get the results that they’re hoping for but also find every part of their dealings with us exceptional. We genuinely want our clients to get the payout they’re entitled to, giving them the financial support needed so that they can focus on their well-being and health.

Our Process

We recognise that many Australians aren’t claiming money from their risk insurance policies that they’re entitled to. Whether they’ve taken out income protection, life insurance, trauma insurance or total & permanent disability (TPD) insurance, in many cases a claim either isn’t made or is incorrectly turned down. Claims Advocacy works with these claims, meticulously considering every aspect to find the proof needed for the claim to be accepted. We take care of the entire claim process, keeping you up to date on the progress from beginning to the end. With low fees and the choice of a no-win, no-fee payment arrangement, we’re the advocacy company of choice for a growing number of claimants across Australia.
