Offers peace of mind

In an event of bodily injury that result to hospitalization or disability, or death caused by violent, accidental, external and visible events, , most families may not have the financial capability to pay medical bills or start over. Instead, they seek financial assistance from friends, family and online users across social media platforms.

With the Orient Personal Accident cover however, one is assured of monetary compensation that can be used to pay liabilities. The cover gives you a peace of mind knowing that one does not have to seek alternative monetary sources since the accidental incidents are catered for.

Smooth application and claims process

Most individuals are afraid to take insurance cover because of the assumption of a long application process and even worse, when the claim becomes a cat and mouse chase. The best thing about the Orient Personal Accident Cover is that when applying, you only require; a copy of your pin, a copy of your ID, certificate of registration of the insured for proofing purposes, details of beneficiary, filled proposal form that can be accessed on our website and declared earnings scheduled with the employee name for the named policies.

For claims, one is required to submit a police abstract immediately as proof of the accident and supporting documents, together with a completed claim form. In case of the unfortunate death, the next of kin is required to submit the death certificate and burial permit.

In the event where there is no nominated next of kin or beneficiary, the dependent of the deceased or the administrator of the deceased's estate should provide proof of the dependent or letter of administration in order to complete the claims process.

For a Group Personal Accident Policy usually taken on behalf of employees in a company, the employer will submit the claim to the company, which is payable to the employer. The employer is responsible for the actual disbursement of the claim amount to the individual or family affected at the discretion of the employer.
