The Earthquake Commission says it hopes most of the remaining Southern Response claims will be settled by the middle of 2020.

Over 200 claims were handed over to EQC from Southern Response at the end of 2019 when state insurer wound down its operations.

Twelve Southern Response case managers have been moved to EQC under its deputy chief executive, Renee Walker, to handle those final claims.

Ms Walker spoke to Logan Church about how she plans to get those settled.
