It is now just over 12 months since the ownership of the 360 Commercial business transferred from SURA to its new owners.

During this time, SURA has continued to provide Finance, Claims, IT, HR and Compliance services in a transitional capacity while the new Directors built that capability within the 360 business.

While considerable progress has been made with the creation and establishment of all the transitional functions within 360 Underwriting Solutions, we are delighted to announce that from Monday 1 October 360 Claims will commence operations.

The Team

Having already announced the appointment of Norlie Dooma as our Head of Claims, two highly experienced Claims professionals have been appointed to join the 360 team;

  • Katrina Tan
    Admitted as a Lawyer in the Supreme Court of NSW in 2008, Katrina was previously a Senior Claims Specialist with Insurance Australia Group having practiced law with Curwoods Lawyers as well as legal roles with Christopher C. Freeman & Co Solicitors.
  • James Wallace
    James joins 360 Claims with a wealth of Claims experience that has been developed from both an underwriters and brokers perspective. He has held Senior Claims roles at Suncorp, Chubb, Honan Insurance Group and Milne Alexander.

What Claims will 360 Claims Manage?

From Monday 1 October, all open claims from policies that were incepted on or after 1 July 2017 will transfer from the SURA
Claims team to 360 Claims.

All new claims on policies that were incepted on or after 1 July 2017 will be lodged and managed by 360 Claims.

Will SURA Claims still be involved in 360 Commercial Claims?

Yes, SURA will continue to manage those outstanding claims from policies that were incepted on or before 30 June 2017.

SURA will also lodge and manage any late reported claims from policies that were incepted on or before 30 June 2017.

It is important to remember that the critical date for the transfer of the portfolio from SURA to 360 Underwriting Solutions is determined by the date a policy was incepted. This date determines whether SURA or 360 Claims will be responsible for the Claims experience.
