27. If I include a Named driver in my car insurance policy, will my overall premium increase?
The premium of your car insurance policy is calculated based on the profiles of the Primary driver and the Named driver(s). Depending on the risk profiles of the drivers, the premium may remain the same, increase or decrease. It is important to disclose relevant information in your application so that the risks can be assessed accurately.

28. What is NCD? How will it affect my premium?

A No-Claim Discount (NCD) is an entitlement given to you if no claim has been made under your policy for a year or more with the existing insurer. It reduces the premium you have to pay for the following year. NCD is recognised by all insurers across the industry.

NCD is a way of rewarding you for being a careful driver. The following table shows how the NCD is determined by most insurers across the industry.

Number of accident-free years

Percentage of NCD awarded to Private Car

One year


Two consecutive years


Three consecutive years


Four consecutive years


Five or more consecutive years


29. Does my NCD apply to me, or to my vehicle?

Your NCD applies to you and not the vehicle. If you sell away the current vehicle and buy a new one, you can use the existing NCD for the new car insurance. However, if you own more than 1 vehicle, you will have different NCD for individual vehicle.

30. How is my No Claims Discount (NCD) applied?
Your NCD is tied to you (the policyholder) and can only be applied to one vehicle at one time. If you own more than one vehicle, you may decide which vehicle to apply your NCD.

For example:

  • If you sell your existing vehicle and buy another one, you can transfer the NCD from the existing vehicle to the newly purchased vehicle.
  • If you retain your existing vehicle and buy another one, you can choose to transfer the NCD from the existing vehicle to the newly purchased vehicle. Your existing vehicle will have to earn the NCD from 0%.
  • Alternatively, you can choose to keep the NCD with your existing vehicle and start earning the NCD for the newly purchased vehicle.

31. Can I insure against the loss of my NCD?
Yes, you may add on the NCD Protector as long as you have a NCD of 40% to protect your NCD in the event of a claim. This is an optional benefit with additional premium to be paid. The benefit will protect your NCD against the 1st claim during the Period of Insurance. However, your NCD will be affected if you have more than one claim during the Period of Insurance. Please take note that the NCDP benefit is transferrable between insurers.

Please refer to the table below:

No. of Claim(s) Made During the Period of Insurance

NCD entitlement upon renewal of the Policy





Three or More



32. What if I declare a higher / lower NCD wrongly?
We will verify with your previous insurer and adjust the NCD accordingly.

  • If you declare a higher NCD, you will need to pay us the difference in premium.
  • If you declare a lower NCD, we will refund you the difference in premium.

33. What is the penalty if I fail to make an accident report to my insurance company?
We may refuse to accept the liability for the accident in view of a breach in policy conditions. Your NCD will be further reduced by 10% on top of any NCD reduction resulting from the claim made under your car insurance policy.

34. How long will my NCD remain valid after I stop owning a car?
Your NCD will remain valid for 24 months from the end date of your last policy.

35. I am the policyholder and primary driver for my car insurance policy. Can I transfer my NCD to one of my Named drivers under my policy so that he / she can enjoy a lower premium?
No, NCD is not transferrable to another person except to your spouse, provided your spouse is taking a new car insurance policy with Great Eastern.

This is a one-time transfer and is non reversible. After the transfer, the NCD for your existing car insurance policy will become 0%.

36. I am the registered owner of the car but do not have a driving licence. My primary driver wishes to buy a car under his/ her name. Can I transfer the NCD to him / her?
No, NCD is not transferrable to another person except to your spouse, provided your spouse is taking a new car insurance policy with Great Eastern.

37. Can I transfer my NCD from motorcycle / commercial vehicle to my private car?
No, NCD level for motorcycles / commercial vehicles are different from private cars.

38. If my car insurance policy is in force, can I still withdraw my NCD?
Yes. You may withdraw the NCD while your policy is still in force, subject to no claims made under your car insurance policy. You need to top up the difference in premium due to the NCD withdrawal.

39. How would I be notified on the renewal of the insurance?
A renewal notice will be sent to you about 2 months before the expiry month of the policy.

No refund will be payable if the refund premium is less than S$25.00 or where a claim has arisen under the Policy prior to the cancellation and the Insured shall return the current Certificate(s) of Insurance on or before the date of cancellation and pay the premium due promptly.

44. If my car is involved in an accident but there was no damage to my car or if I do not wish to make a claim, do I still have to lodge the report with GIA or Great Eastern at Great Eastern’s Approved Reporting Centre?
Under the Motor Claims Framework (MCF), in any accident regardless how minor it is, you should lodge the GIA Report in any of our Authorised Accident Reporting Centres within 24 hours or by the next working day. If no claim is submitted against your policy, your report will not affect your policy/NCD. The accident report is important as it will provide the necessary information in order for us to handle any claims made against your policy due to the accident.

For more information about the Motor Claims Framework (MCF), you may refer to

45. What do I do if I get into a car accident?
If you are involved in an accident, please follow these steps:

·        Fatality;

·        Damage to government property;

·        Foreign vehicle;

·        Pedestrian or cyclist;

·        Hit-and-run cases;

·        Vandalism or theft of your car; or
