FAQs
No. Questions & Answers
1

What is the earliest effective date?

The online submission/application must be at least three days before the effective date (T+3).As we need to transmit Work Injury Compensation information to Ministry Of Manpower before policy inception

Example (T+3 days):

  • T           = 01/06/2023:Online issuance
  • 3 Days = 04/06/2023:Effective date
2

What happens if the insured sum for the property is inadequate?

If any property insured shall at the time of the occurrence be collectively of greater value than the sum insured, the amount payable by the Company in respect of the loss or damage shall be proportionately reduced.
See illustration below:
Sum Insured S$100,000
Current Value S$125,000
Loss amount S$ 90,000

SUMO pays S$100,000 S$125,000
X S$90,000 = S$72,000
3

How does Automatic Increase for Sum Insured on Stock-In-Trade apply? 

The Sum Insured for stock-in-trade declared in the proposal shall automatically increase by 20% for fourteen (14) days immediately prior to Chinese New Year, Hari Raya Puasa, Deepavali and Christmas Day.

4

Why do we need to declare Annual Earnings since the cover is on a headcount basis under Work Injury Compensation Section? 

The Ministry of Manpower requires all headcount and annual earnings to be transmitted to their portal before policy inception.  If the Estimated Annual Earnings declared by the Insured are less than Actual Annual Earnings, the Insured will be deemed to be his own insurer to the extent of the shortfall in the amount declared and bear a rateable proportion of the liability accordingly. 

5

What is the difference between Money Section - Personal Accident Benefits extension and the Personal Accident Section? 

Money Section – Personal Accident Benefit extension covers up to two (2) employees who sustain bodily injury caused by armed robbery, hold-up or any attempt threat whilst carrying money to and from the bank and Insured premises and vice versa.  Compensation is in accordance with the Extension’s Table of Benefits up to a maximum sum insured of $5,000 per employee and this is in addition to the compensation that is payable under the Personal Accident Section. 

Personal Accident Section covers Insured Person named in this Section, who sustain bodily injury caused by accidental violent external and visible means.  Compensation is in accordance with the Section’s Table of Benefits. 

6

What is an Overall Compensation Limit in Personal Accident Section?

Overall Compensation Limit refers to the total limit for all Insured persons travelling in one aircraft or surface transport vehicle or vessel which is limited to $5,000,000. If the total amount of all claims for Insured persons exceeds $5,000,000, we will pay each person a rateable proportion of the benefits due for that person. However, if it is due to Terrorism, the total limit payable shall be $1,000,000 per period of insurance.
