At AIG, we work with people experiencing some of the toughest times they’ll ever go through. Illness or the loss of a loved one is never easy, but we help in any way we can. Our life insurance products include additional services as standard - extra support for no extra cost.

Best Doctors®

We provide access to Best Doctors - a service that provides invaluable second medical opinions.

We know people have questions after a diagnosis. Best Doctors gives clear and reliable answers, making sure AIG policyholders and their family get the right diagnosis, treatment and care. Best Doctors can advise on everything from minor surgery to major health concerns, like cancer and heart disease. The service can even look at pre-existing conditions too.

Our support doesn’t suddenly end once a claim is paid. If a customer claims for critical illness, we continue to give access to Best Doctors for three years - empowering our policyholders to manage the after-effects of treatment.

This service is not available for employee benefits policies.

Winston's Wish

The death of a parent or sibling can be one of the most devastating things a child will ever face. That’s why we’ve partnered with a leading UK charity Winston’s Wish to help bereaved children and their families get the specialist support they need.

Winston’s Wish offers a wide range of practical support and guidance in the UK, including online resources, publications, a national telephone helpline, professional face-to-face support and group work.

We encourage anyone who needs to make a life or terminal illness claim to use this service – it doesn’t matter how old or new the policy is.


Smart Health

People are living for longer than ever before, and the need for people to own their health and wellbeing is rising.

Our Smart Health service is a convenient way to connect your customers to tools that help them to manage their health and wellbeing. It provides your clients with unlimited, 24/7 access to a virtual GP service, mental health support, a health check, a nutritionist consultation, expert case management for second medical opinions and personalised online fitness programmes - at no additional cost.

All six services can be accessed via the website – suitable for smartphones, tablets and desktop. The 24/7 GP can also be accessed via the Smart Health app, and your clients can download it from the App Store or via Google Play. Smart Health is available to all of your clients and their immediate families (including children up to the age of 21). It doesn’t matter what type of cover they have with us, when they bought it or how they bought it.


Smart Health, Best Doctors and Winston’s Wish are non-contractual benefits which can be withdrawn at any time without notice.

RedArc support service

We believe in giving more than just financial assistance. That’s why our critical illness claimants and their families are offered RedArc’s critical illness service.

With RedArc, each claimant has a dedicated personal nurse adviser who can help them for as long as they need, providing expert advice and long-term emotional support.

This service is not available for any policies other than group critical illness


Employee Assistance Programme

We’ve partnered with LifeWorks to provide a complete wellbeing solution to Group Income Protection clients and their employees. It brings together a best-in-class user experience and clinical support to achieve complete mental, physical, social and financial wellbeing, through their worldwide network of over 80,000 dedicated support professionals.
