Legal expenses insurance

Anyone can find themselves embroiled in a legal dispute, at work, with the neighbours or a contractor, in traffic, or while getting divorced, just to name a few examples. Without legal expenses cover, you could end up paying enormous legal bills in such a situation. These costs are covered, however, when you take out legal expenses insurance.

Our legal expenses insurance explained

ABN AMRO’s legal expenses insurance gives you direct access to legal assistance during a dispute. 

This assistance is provided through a team of professional legal experts at ARAG. If needed, ARAG will call in the help of a lawyer or mediator, in consultation with you. If you are involved in judicial or administrative proceedings, or if the other party is also entitled to legal assistance through ARAG, you can choose your own lawyer in consultation with ARAG.

Who it is for

ABN AMRO's legal expenses insurance is for personal customers of ABN AMRO residing in the Netherlands. To take out this insurance, you will need an ABN AMRO current account. This is the account you will use to pay the insurance premium.

When you take out ABN AMRO legal expenses insurance, your spouse or partner and children are also covered, even children who are studying away from home. And if you are single, your premium will be lower.

What is insured

You decide what to insure. You can select from the following options:

  • Traffic
  • Consumers and home
  • Health, family and divorce mediation
  • Work and income
  • Pension and social security
  • Taxes and assets

  • which you could anticipate arising when you took out the insurance
  • which arose before the insurance was taken out
  • involving you in the capacity of landlord of your property
  • where the claim involves an amount less than €150. These terms only apply to the 'Consumer and Home' module and do not apply to legal disputes involving bodily injury

Legal advice during a dispute

Call ARAG for legal advice

If you think you may be involved in a legal dispute, or if you need help with a legal matter, you can call ARAG’s service centre on +31 (0)33 434 2470. Lines are open on weekdays from 8.30am to 4.30pm). Outside office hours, your call will be put through to the ARAG emergency service.

Disputes falling outside your cover

If you are insured, you can always turn to the legal expert to ask:

  • about mediation between you and a person or agency (one-time mediation costs)
  • for a referral to an external expert (at a reduced rate)

If you plan to choose your own lawyer, consult with ARAG first. The legal expenses insurance is an in-kind policy, meaning that the insurer arranges for the legal assistance. You cannot, therefore, choose any lawyer you like without first consulting with ARAG and then submit the bills for reimbursement.

Can I choose my own legal expert or lawyer?

If you need legal assistance but are not legally required to be represented by a lawyer, and if after consulting with ARAG you select your own lawyer to handle your judicial or administrative proceedings, the related costs will be covered up to €6000 per event.

When a lawyer is required by law

If you are involved in legal proceedings where you are legally required to be represented by a lawyer, talk to ARAG first before selecting a lawyer on your own. ARAG will contact the lawyer and pay the legal bills up to €50,000.

When a lawyer is not required by law

If you are involved in legal proceedings where you are not legally required to be represented by a lawyer, you can choose your own lawyer or use a lawyer appointed by ARAG.

If you use a lawyer appointed by ARAG, your legal bills will be paid up to €50,000.
