Your queries answered.

You are encouraged to obtain the completed AMPS from your doctor(s) because it will speed up the process. We can reimburse you the cost of the report if you provide us with the original receipt. The cost of the report should range from $80 to $120 (subject to prevailing GST).

If you are not able to obtain the completed AMPS due to special reasons (e.g. suffering from a stroke), we would be happy to do so on your behalf, upon your request. However, you should understand that hospitals may take up to eight weeks to respond to our request.

It depends on your policy and the condition you are claiming for. (Note: Waiting period refers to a period starting from the date of policy issue, inclusion or increase of any benefit, or policy reinstatement, whichever is most recent.)

For a typical dread disease policy that covers the 30 specified dread diseases:

  • There is a 90-day waiting period for these four dread diseases: Major Cancers, Heart Attack, Coronary Artery By-pass Surgery, and Angioplasty & Other Invasive Treatment for Coronary Artery.
  • For other dread diseases, there is no waiting period.

For a dread disease policy that covers early, intermediate and advanced stages of dread diseases:

  • There is a 90-day waiting period for all early stage dread diseases, intermediate stage dread diseases, and special or juvenile dread diseases.
  • In addition, a 90-day waiting period will also apply to these specific advanced stage dread diseases: Major Cancers, Heart Attack, Other Serious Coronary Artery Disease, and Coronary Artery By-pass Surgery.
  • For other dread diseases, there is no waiting period.

No. We will process the claim under all policies and riders with the dread disease benefit. Once we pay out 100% of the benefit under a basic policy, any riders attached to the main policy will be terminated.

As long as you have fully disclosed your insurance cover with other companies upon applying the insurance plan with us, we will pay the full claim amount.

All riders (with the exception of Extended Permanent Total Disability rider) will cease as the main contract has come to an end.

For Extended Permanent Total Disability rider, it will be terminated unless the insured has been certified to be totally and permanently disabled (TPD) as well. In this case, we will commence the payouts under the Extended Permanent Total Disability rider at the end of the fifth year, provided that the insured is still TPD by then. If not, the Extended Permanent Total Disability rider will be terminated.

Yes, provided this is a participating policy1 and the policy has been in force for at least two years (when bonus has vested) at the time the claim was admitted.

1. Participating policy refers to the policy that is managed in the Participating Fund (“the Fund”). The policy shares in the profits or losses of the Fund, through bonuses added to your policy. For more information, please refer to this guide: Understanding Your Participating Policy.
