SINGAPORE - Media OutReach - 4 July 2018 - Committed to
its mission of humanising insurance, Etiqa Insurance has launched a 30-minute
fast Own Damage (OD) claims approval for its motor policyholders, a first-ever
feature in the motor insurance sector in Singapore.
Motor claims approval generally takes
approximately 1 to 2 days to process. Etiqa, with its 22 quality authorised workshops, has streamlined the motor claims
submission process and greatly reduced their approval time. Upon receiving the
necessary claims and estimated damage documents, repair claims of up to S$5,000
can be approved in just 30 minutes. Motor vehicle owners can expect to get
their vehicles back on the road much sooner, minimising inconvenience.
"The motor insurance industry is a
very competitive market, and we would like to offer our customers great value
beyond a competitive price. By speeding up the approval process, we reduce
stress and provide better peace of mind to motor vehicle owners," said Sue Chi
Kong, Chief Executive Officer of Etiqa Insurance Singapore.
Following their successful launch of the first-ever automated Straight
Through Processing (STP) of travel claims with instant payout via PayNow, the
progressive insurer is once again revamping the motor insurance scene with
their fast 30-minute claims approval.
The innovative insurer and its
partners recognise the importance of speed in an increasingly time-deprived
society. Sue added, "Our authorised workshops are cooperative in this
initiative and are looking forward to provide a seamless claims experience to
