As part of our continuing program to improve security for Claims Portal, we will be introducing a token to A2A messaging and the requirement to change the A2A password. These features will apply an additional layer of security to verify the identity of the user. 

To reflect these changes in the Portal, user development and testing will be necessary for A2A users only and further information is available on our Claims Portal website www.claimsportal.org.uk
