GIRO

GIRO is the preferred mode of premium payment, especially for monthly payment. It is also a convenient and hassle-free way of making payment. You need not monitor your premium due date, send cheques nor make cash payments to us. Most importantly, it ensures that premiums are paid on time so that your insurance coverage is intact.

You have to fill up a GIRO application form.

Click here to download the form. Print, complete and mail it to us together with the current month’s premium at 1 Pickering Street, #01-01 Great Eastern Centre, Singapore 048659. Please send us the original copy, as we need to submit the GIRO application form to the bank for approval.

We will need to send your GIRO form to the bank for approval. The advanced payment of premium is required to give us and the bank ample time to process your application and ensure that your policy is kept in force with up-to-date payment of premium.

Hence, we would advise you to pay the current month's premium when you submit the GIRO application form.

The GIRO deduction date is fixed on either the 11th or 12th and 26th or 27th of each month. The date is fixed based on your policy number and premium due date. You will be informed of the GIRO deduction date in our acknowledgement letter to you when we receive your GIRO Application form.

There will be two GIRO attempts for the deduction. If first attempt to deduct fails, we will automatically schedule another attempt on the second deduction date. If the second attempt also fails, the GIRO service will be suspended. A GIRO unsuccessful deduction letter will be sent to you.

If you wish to change your GIRO account to another bank, a fresh GIRO application form has to be submitted.

You can use the same GIRO account to pay for any outstanding Policy Loan or APL. The minimum instalment is S$50 (see terms in the Application for APL/Loan Repayment by GIRO form). When the remaining loan balance is less than the instalment amount, the final instalment repayment will be the balance amount.
