Focus on generational differences: How do policyholders' needs differ in the event of a claim?
In the event of a claim - from a minor annoyance to a highly emotional crisis situation - insurers must prove their legitimacy and meet individual expectations. A joint white paper by Versicherungsforen Leipzig and adesso insurance solutions gets to the bottom of the question of whether the needs of the generations are really as different as is often claimed. The core of the white paper is the question of what role digitality plays for customers in the event of a claim and whether a change in their needs can be observed across the different generations. The basis for answering these questions is an online survey conducted in September 2023 among 800 German insurance customers aged between 18 and 73.
