5 Reasons People Refuse Insurance
Indonesia is still listed as an underinsured country, this is because there are still many Indonesians who do not have insurance. There are many reasons why Indonesians are lazy to have insurance. Some of these reasons are based on one thing, namely the lack of insurance education for the public. Here are the top 5 reasons why Indonesians are still reluctant to get insurance according to the Insurance Magazine version:
Do not understand
Because insurance is not very popular in the community, many terms are not understood by the Indonesian people, thus causing people to be afraid of being deceived and decide not to have insurance, whether car, health, or life insurance. People's ignorance can actually be overcome if there is education that is easy and simple to understand, sometimes the explanation received by the community from an insurance agent is not explained in simple language.
Insurance is still considered a luxury and out of reach. Whereas the government and private companies have provided several various insurance options and along with the growth of the insurance industry, prices have become very competitive. For example, the price of personal accident insurance can be around Rp. 25,000 (twenty five thousand rupiah) but it can still provide a fairly high protection value. The price of insurance today is much cheaper in the past, maybe even this price is not more expensive than people's spending on mobile phone credit.
There are still other needs
This is very understandable, but make sure that what is meant by other needs are very urgent or primary needs and once you have enough savings, start insurance no matter how small the amount. Because no matter how small the insurance value, it will be very helpful when needed.
“I Will Drive Carefully” (Car Insurance)
Even if you drive very carefully, your car still has the risk of being hit, dented, or other traffic incidents. Therefore, insure your vehicle, so that your financial status remains stable if something happens to the vehicle.
Insurance Claims Must Be Difficult
This point, really depends on the type of insurance company chosen, but in general, if you have read it carefully and understand the insurance policy comprehensively, insurance claims should not be a frightening specter. Therefore, it is highly recommended to consult first with some relatives or experts before buying insurance products.
Disaster Alert Bag!
The first preparedness that must be done is to know the mitigation steps for each type of disaster. You need to anticipate disasters by having the skills to evaluate situations quickly and take the initiative to protect yourself. You need to understand the dangers that lurk around the area where you live. Make a disaster anticipation plan with your family, and do joint exercises to implement the plan. This plan should include identifying assembly points, knowing important contact numbers, evacuation routes, and locations to turn off water, gas and electricity. In addition to understanding disaster mitigation, preparation that is no less important is preparing a Disaster Preparedness Bag (TSB). Disaster Alert Bag is a bag that must be prepared to anticipate the occurrence of disasters or other emergency conditions. Criteria for Disaster Preparedness Bags Disaster Preparedness Bags are our way to survive when aid has not arrived or is being evacuated to other places. Disaster Preparedness Bags must be made of water-resistant or waterproof materials. The contents of this bag are basic necessities for at least three days. In addition to food, drinks, medicines, clothes, flashlights, powerbanks, batteries, cash and masks, also prepare important documents such as ID cards, diplomas, birth certificates and other documentation in preparation if you have to leave the house immediately.
Does Car Insurance Cover Landslides?
Aside from the danger of flooding, heavy rainfall can also lead to mudflow, basically creating a river of mud; and landslides, which are caused by the movement of the destabilized land—due either to gradual erosion or an accumulation of water. Does your auto insurance policy provide coverage for landslides?
Insurance shall not cover any loss of, damage to and/or expense incurred in Motor Vehicle and/or legal liability against any third party directly or indirectly caused by, as a consequence of, resulting from: earthquake, volcanic eruption, windstorm, tempest, tsunami, hail, flood, inundation, landslide or other geological or meteorological symptoms (Motor Vehicle Insurance Standard Policy in Indonesia chapter 2, Exclusion, article 3, point 3.2).
Like flood, however, earthquake and landslide is excluded from standard car insurance policies—you must buy the coverage separately. Please call 021- 50508080 for more information.
