Claiming on and renewing your policy

For claims for new conditions, you'll find RSA's editable form on the online servicing page for you and your vet to complete.

Claims online servicing

As pets get older, sadly they're more likely to get ill. In fact, RSA's claims data shows that the cost of looking after your pet's health doubles every four to five years. That's why your renewal price increases each year and your excess will increase when your pet turns nine.

Unfortunately, once a pet has been taken ill, they're more likely to get ill again. That's why, if a claim is paid, the price you will pay next year can double. How much they go up is different for everyone and depends on things like your pet's breed, their age and health.
