Cadwyn Clwyd

Contact Cadwyn Clwyd


Businesses that have cover for both pandemics and government-ordered closure should be covered, as the government and insurance industry confirmed on 17 March 2020 that advice to avoid pubs, theatres etc. is sufficient to make a claim.

Insurance policies differ significantly, so businesses are encouraged to check the terms and conditions of their specific policy and contact their providers. Most businesses are unlikely to be covered, as standard business interruption insurance policies are dependent on damage to property and will exclude pandemics. 

Extra support for the welfare system

The Department for Work and Pensions is looking to support all those who are affected by corona virus by providing information and details regards claiming benefits

Citizens Advice Denbighshire are also able to assist you with making an initial claim or helping you update your existing one.
