Make sure we have your current email address

If you’re not sure which email address we have or you need to update your email address, give us a call on

Make sure you add to your email safe list so Claim SmartForm emails don’t end up in your junk mail!

Use the right device to complete your form

The Claim SmartForm is easy to fill out and only takes a few moments of your time. For best results use a desktop, laptop or tablet device instead of your mobile phone.

Your apprentice or trainee must also authorise the Claim SmartForm

If they’re not available, you can upload evidence of their wages instead, to prove they were employed at the claim effect date.

Keep an eye on your inbox after you’ve submitted your Claim SmartForm

Your Claim SmartForm will be sent directly to MEGT for processing. If we need further information in order to process your claim, we’ll request this via email.
