Submission of Claim –
To apply for a claim under the insurance scheme, follow the procedure specified below:
Immediate written notice of claim should be given to the Insurance company through Coir Board along with the particulars.
  • In case of death, notice should be given before internment/cremation within one month from the death.
  • In case of loss of sight or amputation of limbs, claim notice should be provided within one month from the loss of sight or loss of a limb.
  • In the case of permanent total or partial disablement and temporary total disablement claims, the insured persons are required to obtain a claim form along with the Doctor’s certificate, medical bills, diagnostic reports, like x-rays, etc. to prove the extent of accidental injuries occurred.
In case of any interpretation required from the insurance company, the underwriting office should ensure the insured is examined by a surgeon or Physician on the Company’s panel and settlement of such claims will be processed based on that report submitted.
The specified capital sum insured is payable only in the event of death occurs by accident, i.e. within 12 months from the date of occurrence of the event but not necessarily instantaneous death in such case the incident should be investigated appropriately or verified as to the proximate cause of death.
This time limit of 12 months is enforced to prevent belated claims as per the policy and for which renewal had been refused for several years earlier. It has to be ensured that the accident must occur during the operational period of the policy.
In case of fatal claims, the nominee of the insured’s person or legal heir should be asked to submit the post-mortem report and the original copy of the death certificate to the insurance company.
The concerned person should make sure that death had occurred solely due to the accident. Also, the concerned officials should satisfy with the identity of the nominee. The legal heirs will have to furnish evidence of their titles such as probate, succession certificate, or letters of administration.
