Singlife Car Insurance Claims
How do claims work?
Firstly, you’ve got to be clear of the parties involved in a car accident before you make a claim.
The First Party
Once you’ve purchased a car insurance policy, you become the First Party in terms of the contract.
The Second Party
The insurance company, Singlife, from whom you have purchased the policy by paying the insurance premium for your vehicle, is the Second Party in the contract.
The Third Party
Someone other than the First (you) and Second Party (Singlife). It can be anyone. For example, another driver on the road or a cyclist on the street.
Here are 6 steps to a successful car insurance claim
Report to Singlife hours of the accident
Be it a First Party or Third Party Claim, Singlife requires claim reports to be made within 24 hours, just like most car insurance companies. It is best to inform within 24 hours regardless of whether or not you intend to claim on your own policy or if your car is damaged. This is to avoid breaching the policy’s terms and conditions, which may affect your claim process. If a third party is involved, he/she may or may not submit a claim and the insurance company would need to have all the relevant information.
Take damage and accident scene photos
Take photos with tight shots and wide shots from various angles to ensure that you get sufficient photographic footage of the scene and context of the accident. The license plates of all vehicles involved should be photographed as well, as all these might be needed as evidence for insurance claim. This is mandatory for both First Party and Third Party Claims.
Get the other driver’s contact details
This step will not be applicable for First Party Claims. For Third Party Damage Claims, you will need his/her contact details which include:
- Driver names of all involved
- NRIC numbers
- Address of driver / drivers
- Car insurance company of vehicles involved
- Contact numbers
Avoid moving the vehicle
When you get into an accident on your own or with other parties, do not move the vehicle or vehicles involved, unless they are in the middle of the road and pose a safety hazard. When it comes to Third Party Damage Claims, moving the vehicles may give Singlife and the other driver’s insurance company a chance to dispute your claim.
Submit claim report to Singlife
After contacting Emergency Assistance at +65 6333 2222, Singlife will send their Mobile Accident Response Service (MARS) to assist you at the accident site and help complete your accident reporting. Alternatively, you can make your way to authorised workshops to file a report, submit the required forms, as well as the supporting evidence (accident scene photos and drivers’ details). If you’re planning to pay off the repair costs on your own to save on claim cost or protect your no claim discount (NCD), you’ll still have to submit a Private Settlement Form via Singlife's car claims page.
Get your car fixed at any Singlife authorised workshop
Some insurers offer free emergency assistance including towing services, tyre change and battery jumpstart, while others may require you to use only tow trucks belonging to their or a partner company and using any other tow service might have complications for your claim. Seek advice from Singlife's authorised workshops if you are unsure. If you are covered under Motor Standard or Motor Prestige Plan, you may wish to send your car to your preferred workshop, but this may lead to delays in arranging the repairs and may involve an additional excess payment.
