MOST COMMON FAQs

1.What is insurance?

Insurance is a mechanism through which persons transfer risk(s) to insurance companies at a fee called premium.
The insurance companies in return promise to pay for the insured loss should it occur.

2.How many forms of insurance are there?

There are two forms of insurance namely life (long term) and general (short term).
Life insurance are contracts for more than one year while general insurance contracts are for one year or less.

Yes. Under life insurance policy this action must be taken within the first thirty days after receiving the policy document.
In case you cancel the policy within the thirty days, you will be refunded the whole premium paid less withholding tax.

Regarding general insurance business, cancellation of the policy will lead to a prorata refund of the premiums so far paid.

4.What happens to my policy if I fail to pay premium?

Failure to pay insurance premiums as stipulated in the policy amounts to breach of policy terms and conditions and leads to the termination of the contract.

5.What happens to my policy if an insurance company collapses?

If you have a life insurance policy and the insurance company is closed down, your policy remains valid and you should continue paying policy premiums throughout the remaining term of the policy. Failure to continue paying premiums leads to termination of the policy by the insurance company.
You have the right to claim under the policy immediately the policy matures.

6.How do I make an insurance claim?

You will need to report any loss or damage to the insurance company in time and ensure that you submit all the necessary documents requested by your insurance company. You are required to co-operate with the insurance company to facilitate the smooth handling of the claim.

7.What if the insurance company declines to pay my claim?

In the event of a dispute between you and your insurance company you can contact IRA through the contacts below.

8.Can I insure my property with more than one insurer?

No. Insurance contracts are guided by principle of indemnity which requires that the policyholder should be taken back to the financial position they were immediately before the loss occurred.
Insuring the same property e.g. a house with more than one insurer so as to be paid twice should the insured loss occur amounts to gaining unduly from the contract.

9.Can I insure my life with more than one insurer?

Yes. You can insure your life with more than one insurer. This is because life cannot be valued.

10.Can I sell my vehicle together with its insurance cover?

No. Motor Insurance policies are not transferable because they are personal in nature.

11.What is insurance premium tax relief?

Insurance Premium Tax Relief (IPTR) is a benefit offered by the Government to all life insurance policyholders.
Under the relief, the employer is required to pay premiums to the insurer less the 15% relief. IPTR became effective in 1993 and is not applicable retrospectively.

12.How do I follow my insurance tax reliefs?

Only employees who are subject to PAYE tax can claim the 15% Insurance Premium Tax Relief.
The tax-paying life policyholder should obtain an annual insurance premium contribution certificate from the insurer and submit a copy of the same to the employer.
The certificate should be accompanied with a letter from the policyholder seeking for the relief.
The employer is expected to effect the relief through the payroll by submitting the premium to the insurer net of the 15% relief.

For premiums already paid to the insurer without deducting the relief, employees are requested to write to KRA seeking the refund. For self-employed individuals, request for the 15% Insurance Premium Relief is made through the annual tax returns through submitting the annual premium contribution certificate to KRA who will then compute the refund.

13.Does motor vehicle comprehensive policy cover the driver and or the owner?

No. As the name suggests, Motor Vehicle Comprehensive policy only protects damage or loss to the motor vehicle and any claim made by the third parties. As such the policy does not pay any claim for loss or damage made by the policyholder.
Policyholders are therefore advised to buy separate insurance to protect them against losses arising from the use of the vehicle.

14.Can I drive a vehicle without motor vehicle insurance in Kenya?

No. Motor Third Party Risks cover is compulsory in Kenya. Driving without this insurance is illegal in Kenya.

HOME INSURANCE FAQs

1.What is home insurance?

Home insurance cover comes in two parts which you can choose either, based on your needs;

  • Buildings Insurance

    Insures your bricks and mortar for events like fire and weather damage.

  • Contents Insurance
  • Protects your belongings against problems like theft, damage and loss.

Buying a combined policy from the same insurer can often be cheaper than getting two separate policies.

2.Is it essential to have home insurance?

If you’re a homeowner, most mortgage lenders insist you have buildings cover in place to protect their investment.
You don’t usually need buildings cover if you’re renting, but you may want contents insurance to help cover the cost of replacing your things if you suffer a loss.

3.Why would I need to take out a joint home insurance policy?

Adding a joint policy holder allows the other person to make a claim, so it’s not only you who can deal with communications with your insurer.
Under some circumstances it can also lower your premium.

4.What is accidental damage cover and do I need it?

Most insurers define accidental damage as an unintentional one-off incident that harms your property or its contents.
Most standard policies cover key items like home entertainment, but there may be varying exclusions depending on your insurer.
Your need depends on your circumstances; many accidental damage claims come from people with young children.

It’s also important to know what’s covered under your standard policy. Checking the small print is the best way to make sure you’ve got adequate cover.

5.What should I include in my contents cover?

As a rule of thumb, anything you’d take with you if you moved house should be included on your contents policy; including items like curtains and carpets.
It’s worth taking the time to go around your house from room to room and putting a reasonable value on everything.

It’s easy to underestimate the value of your contents, but it’s important to make sure you’re not under-insured.

6.Should I increase my excess to make my policy cheaper?

The golden rule of voluntary excess is to make sure you know what you can afford to pay if you have to make a claim.
The more you agree to pay towards a claim, the less cost there would be for your insurer, so they may reduce your premium accordingly.

But beware; setting an unreasonably high voluntary excess may save you a few shillings on your premium in the short term, but if ever you need to make a claim, you could find yourself with a large bill to settle before your insurer will pay out.

7.If I don't let my insurer know about changes could this affect my cover?

Potentially, yes.

For example, if you’ve told your buildings insurer that your roof is in good repair, they will base your premium on the known risk of storm damage happening to the average roof.

But if, in fact, your guttering is already falling off, or your tiles are coming loose, then there’s a greater than average risk of damage happening during a storm; something your insurer hasn’t covered against on your original premium.

As the full risks weren’t disclosed, you’re effectively insuring higher risks at a cheaper price, which could invalidate your policy and leave you without a pay out in the event of a claim.

8.Can I cover myself against damage by pets?

Most home insurance policies don’t cover damage caused by pets as standard.

9.Does home insurance apply to me if I rent?

As the owner, your landlord will be responsible for the maintenance of the building, so it’s down to them to ensure their property is protected with buildings insurance.

But you’re responsible for any contents inside that you own. If anything were to happen to your possessions, you would liable yourself for the cost of replacing them.

10.What if my situation changes, such as building an extension or buying expensive furniture?

You need to inform your insurer of any changes to your building and/or your contents which may impact on the cover you have.
The key point to remember is that your contract with your insurer is based on mutual disclosure of information; they charge you a “fair” premium, based on the risks you’ve made them aware of. If these risks change, so too does the value of a “fair” premium.

If in doubt, ask your insurer. The time taken for a quick phone call could save any problems that arise in the event of a claim

11.What if I need a quote for an unoccupied property?

If the property you’re quoting for is empty, then on the first page of the quotation process (‘About You’) you’ll need to enter your main home address.

On the second page (‘The Property’) you’ll then need to confirm that the property you’re insuring is not your home address.
You can then select that the property is left unattended for more than 60 days at a time.

Be aware though that an unoccupied home often falls outside the underwriting criteria of our home insurance panel, so you’re likely to receive fewer quotes than usual.

12.Why did my price increase when I went to the insurance provider’s site?

Insurance providers may offer you additional services, such as political violence and terrorism cover or home emergency cover.
If you choose to add any of these to your policy, the price may increase. Your price can also increase if you change any of your details, such as your occupation or your excess amount.
It’s therefore important that you check your policy details carefully to make sure it’s exactly as you entered it on.
