If your dispute needs to be dealt with as a claim under this section, you will be provided with a claim reference number. At this point, DAS will not be able to confirm that you are covered but the information you provide will be passed to the specialist claims handling teams and you will be advised about what to do next.

If you prefer to report your claim in writing, you can send it to the Claims Department at the following address:
