What You Should Know About Insurance 1 by Teajayz(m): 5:04pm On Jan 25, 2019
Insurance is the protection against financial loss. It is a risk-transfer mechanism that ensures full or partial financial compensation for the loss or damage caused by event(s) beyond the control of the insured party. Under an insurance contract, a party (the insurer) indemnifies the other party (the insured) against a specified amount of loss, occurring from specified eventualities within a specified period, provided a fee called premium is paid.

Why Would You Insure Your Assets?

Why would anyone concern themselves with the variety of insurance types available to them if they happen to believe it to be a waste of hard earned money and just not a justifiable expense?

For example, why would anyone spend even one naira on life insurance if they have no intention of dying anytime soon? After all, life insurance is for the elderly, is it not?

And why on earth would one insure a vehicle if he/she is a good responsible driver who has never had a vehicle collision ever before? Why waste money on vehicle insurance?

And what about home insurance, surely that is a huge waste of money especially if one has the best security systems and features in place to protect all valuables?

Why would an importer waste money on marine insurance when his goods always arrive safely at the port of destination?

Why would anyone on earth waste money on an unemployed insurance policy if he/she is in permanent employment and has been for years.

All of the above might seem realistic and true, but only for those who live in a perfect world without crime, natural disasters and unforeseen events. If one takes one natural disaster such as a fire as an example, it will automatically give justifiable reasons to all of the above and confirm the necessity of insurance rather than a waste of money.

And yes, life insurance might not be to your immediate benefit now, but accidents do happen, and should anything happen to you, you will at least have ensured that your loved ones are not burdened with your funeral costs, debts etc.

And even though you might be a responsible good driver, another vehicle driver might not be and collide into your vehicle by accident or even you might find yourself in the situation those affected on Otedola bridge found themselves and you run to save your life and forget to save your car and other things inside. This is why vehicle insurance is of such importance to have, so much so that it is enforceable by law in many instances

Also, you might be lucky that your goods are loaded safely at the port of departure and arrive safely at the port of destination. what if your life investment (container) fall inside sea one day. where do you intend to start from.

Now you see why insurance is necessary. Don't procrastinate, take action today.

What is Insurance and why do I need it?

Insurance has many forms and functions but really just for one purpose to ‘’Provide Peace Of Mind’’.

How does insurance work?

When you buy an insurance policy, you make payment to the insurance company for the amount of risk cover that you seek. Insurance companies pool the money paid like this by individuals and entities and then use them to compensate for the losses and damages arising out of insured events.

Reasons to Insure:

Reduce worry, help to prevent loss and to free up capital because insurance protects your assets in case of future losses.This security applies to individual and businesses.

Taking an insurance policy today!

Don't buy a 'fake third party insurance' from "agents" with ur hard-earned #5000 whereas you can get a valid cover (that you can make a claim of #1,000,000) at the same amount from any insurance company of ur choice. Be informed!

2. Third Party Fire and Theft: provides cover if one of your vehicles is damaged by fire or is stolen. This policy also covers third party damages and liabilities.
3. Comprehensive: provides cover if one of your vehicles is damaged by fire, theft, vandalism, accidental damage or collision, or is stolen.

Did you know that there are seven compulsory insurance policies in Nigeria? Yes, the Federal Government has made it compulsory for individuals and businesses in the country to be protected by a few insurance policies. Here they are:

1. Motor Third Party Insurance: People who have been caught by law enforcement agents while driving, for not having insurance, may be able to relate to this. To ensure the safety of road users, the government has made it compulsory for citizens and residents to have motor insurance before plying public roads. It protects you against your legal liability to other road users for (i) Property damage (ii) Death or injury.

2. Employee Group Life Insurance: Are you an employer of labour? This is for you. The employee group life insurance requires that every employer of labour with five or more employees must take out a life insurance policy on each of these employees. The sum is at least three times the annual total compensation for the employee and applies to employees in the private and public sectors.

3. Health Care Professional Indemnity: As a patient, are you aware that every licenced health care provider must obtain insurance before treating you? Health care professionals are required to obtain insurance that will protect their patients in case of accidents or fatalities resulting from professional negligence. A health care provider comprises any registered government or private healthcare practitioner, hospital or maternity centre.

4. Insurance of Public Buildings: Did you know that your favourite shopping mall and hangout spot ought to be insured? The law provides that every public building must be insured against liability in the case of loss, damage to property, death or bodily injury that may be caused by collapse, fire, earthquake, storm or flood. A public building refers to any building accessible to people for educational, medical, recreational or commercial purposes.

5. Insurance of Buildings under Construction: Site workers’ lives matter! This is why the owner or contractor of any building under construction with more than two floors, must undertake insurance from the construction stage. The purpose is to guard the public against construction risks that may be caused by negligence on the part of the contractor; resulting in bodily injury, loss of life or property damage.

6. Aviation Third Party Insurance: Fly with cover! Aircraft operators in Nigeria are not permitted to operate without first undertaking this insurance policy. The policy involves three parties namely; the aircraft operators, the insurance company and the third party i.e. passengers, employees and the public at large. The aim is to provide cover in the case of accidental injury, death or property damage to third parties caused directly by the aircraft.

7. Marine Insurance (Cargo): If you’re planning on starting your own container shipping business, this is for you. Individuals and organisations that regularly engage the use of marine transportation are required to obtain marine insurance. It covers for losses that may occur as a result of marine adventures, from the use of vessels and yachts as a means of transportation.

Five Steps To Utilize Your 3rd Party Insurance When An Accident Occurs

In this article, you will learn five steps to utilize your 3rd party insurance, but first, let me tell you about my experience.

Sometime last year, someone hit my car from the back. The impact was so bad that my fan belt pulled off. The boot was badly damaged. I was not in the car when the accident occurred, so naturally, I was called.

The person who drove my car was furious.
” I was very careful”, he insisted. “I don’t even know what the boy was thinking about!”, he fumed.

I asked to speak with the person who hit my car. Immediately the young man got on the phone, he began to beg. He was almost in tears. He pleaded with everything he held dear and asked to be forgiven. Calmly, I asked him if he had any Insurance. To my shock and surprise, he said no.
“Are you sure?” I asked. “How have you been escaping from the police without having Insurance?” I asked.
“Ma, I just have normal papers” he responded. “The one they gave me with my license”

I asked him to take pictures of the documents he had and send them to my WhatsApp number.
Immediately he sent the documents, I quickly scanned through them and saw that he had a 3rd party Insurance policy with an Insurance company. I then typed the policy number on the NIID Portal to see if it was genuine. I was pleasantly surprised when his details popped out. He had valid 3rd Party Insurance!!

I just asked him to take a snapshot of his driver’s license and then write a small note for me, admitting that he had caused the accident. Then I told him that he was free to go home.

Everyone at the scene seemed surprised. How did I let him go just like that?
You can now imagine my shock when I was woken up early the next morning by his call. It was around 6am or so. I could tell that he did not sleep. It was a Saturday morning.
“Ma, please I beg you in the name of God” he pleaded. “I am the son of a widow, I don’t have any money on me, the accident was a mistake. Please don’t report the case to the police”.

It was my turn to be shocked.
“Police? I asked. “Who said anything about the police?”
“You took pictures of my driver’s license and made me admit that I caused the accident”
I could not help laughing.

Then I calmly explained to him that my car was comprehensively insured and that I only took his details to enable my Insurance company to claim their subrogation rights from his Insurance company. This way, even though my Insurance Company would pay for the damage to my car, they would recover the money from the Insurance company which insured his own car.

A few days later, my car was fixed.

Most drivers in Nigeria have 3rd party Motor Insurance policies but very few of them ever read the policies to know the extent of their protection.

It usually baffles me to see drivers exchanging words (and sometimes blows) anytime there’s a car accident. And then I keep wondering if neither of them has a 3rd party insurance.

In Nigeria, once a driver has a 3rd party Insurance and an accident occurs the driver at fault, his Insurance Company will be liable to compensate the 3rd party, up to a maximum of N1,000,000 (One Million Naira).

The Insurance company would usually engage the services of a loss adjuster, who would assess the damage and advise the company of the appropriate amount to be paid for repairs.

So next time someone hits your car, take these 5 steps:

1. Take pictures of the two cars at the scene of the accident.
2. Ask for the Insurance policy of the person who caused the accident.
3. Log in the policy number on the NIID Portal via www.askniid.org. This is a database set up by the government for confirming the genuineness of all Motor Insurance Policies. Then take a picture of the Insurance policy and his/her driver’s license.
4. Ask the driver to write a note for you, admitting that the accident occurred.
5. Check the website of the Insurance company and call them to lodge your complaint.

Once the Insurance company is reputable, your car would be fixed in a matter of days.

Do stay safe.
