Too often, we hear, ‘insurance is a rip-off,’ or, ‘insurance is a waste of money’, which led us to wonder about the common misconception. We discovered that the problem stems from a lack of understanding of insurance services and how they can assist you in times of need. One of our key business features is ensuring that you are completely aware of your coverage—what’s included, but, more importantly, what’s not—providing you with all the information to help you make fully informed decisions.
‘I have comprehensive insurance for my car, so I am covered for everything!’
To cut your costs, some insurers remove certain aspects of the cover and charge an additional premium to have coverage upgraded. Flood is one peril that is often left out of comprehensive cover, unless it is specifically purchased, and malicious damage is another. Ensure that if you have comprehensive coverage, your policy includes all perils of nature, accidental damage, fire, theft, windscreen/glass cover, and malicious damage.
‘The driver has the same level of coverage as the passengers in a vehicle’
Passengers are treated as Third Parties and therefore fall under the parameters set out in the Third Party Liability section of the policy. A driver is only covered up to the benefits on the Personal Accident extension on the policy IF this extension is bought. Most often this coverage is overlooked thereby leaving the driver exposed and unable to claim for bodily injuries. The PAB (personal accident benefit) is usually very small, but in the time of need, every bit counts!
‘I don’t own the house; therefore I cannot get insurance for my belongings.’
Even if you are a tenant, you can obtain coverage for your furniture, appliances, and other personal belongings under a Homeowner’s Insurance policy. You may even insure improvements made to the building, such as air conditioning units.
‘My house is 30 years old; it’s only worth about $300,000. I will insure for that amount so if anything happens, I will get back $300,000.’
There are two types of insurance policies—Indemnity and Replacement. Most Homeowner’s policies are replacement cost policies; therefore, the accurate value to insure would be the cost to replace the existing structure at this present time. Most persons under-insure their homes and are penalised by insurance in the event of partial losses.
‘I just found out I am pregnant. If I buy a health policy, I will get to claim for the maternity expenses.’
All health insurance policies have waiting periods that must be observed before a claim can be made. Maternity, vision, and dental coverage are the main features with significant waiting periods. Plan ahead—purchase health insurance before it is actually needed. You can then avoid exclusions on your policy for pre-existing conditions.
‘If I am insured on two health plans and two life plans, I get paid twice for a claim!’
Don’t be disappointed if each of your health insurance providers only pays 50% of your claim. This is called co-ordination of benefits, as health insurance is not meant for you to make a profit by claiming twice for the same ailment. On the other hand, each life insurance policy will pay 100% of the policy benefits to a beneficiary upon the death of the insured. There is no restriction on the allowed number of life insurance policies for any one person.
At Sheppard, we continuously conduct market research to ensure that the insurers we work with are up to our high standards of quality. We need to know that your policy is in safe hands and any claims made can be settled with ease.
Our preferred local and international insurers are highly rated by agencies, such as Standard & Poor’s or A.M Best, whose sole purpose is to review the financial strength of these companies and their ability to meet all obligations to you.
For our client relationships to thrive, we must build strong foundations of integrity and trust. When you insure through Sheppard, you can rest easy knowing that you are insured with the best.
