Families set to receive payouts in less time

Bereaved families are set to receive payouts in just a quarter of the time they got the money previously, following new guidelines.

The Association of British Insurers has issued guidance which should enable the industry to make payments in four weeks, rather than four months, as is currently the case.

More than 32,000 claims are made each year by families.
