Bosses told 485 workers in Liverpool that their office will close. 80 people at the firm's Manchester site also face losing their jobs.
The firm is cutting costs nationwide.
The proposed closure of our Liverpool claims centre was not an easy decision to make and we understand the effect this announcement has on our people. We have now commenced a period of consultation with those potentially affected and they will be supported by their employee representative bodies.
While this is currently a proposal, the plan is not immediate. In the months to follow we aim to do as much a possible to mitigate the impact of potential redundancy through redeployment and by working with employers in the local area to identify opportunities.
