To know the Star claim procedure for this policy, follow the steps below and claim your sum insured –
Prohibition of Rebates: Under Section 41 of the Insurance Act 1938, no person will allow or offer to allow, directly or indirectly, as an inducement to any person to take out, renew, or continue this policy in respect of any kind of risk relating to lives or property in India. Any rebate of the payable whole or part of the commission or any premium rebate as shown on the policy, shall not acceptable to any person taking out, renewing, or continuing a policy for any rebate, except such rebate is allowed by the published prospectuses or tables of the insurer: Any person who deviates and does not comply with the provisions of this section is liable for a maximum penalty of ten lakh rupees.
You will get a free look period of 15 days from the date of receipt of the policy from the insurer. At this time, you need to review the terms and conditions of the policy. In case you are not satisfied with the terms and conditions, you can request to cancel the policy. In such an event, the company shall allow a refund of paid premium after adjusting the cost of pre-acceptance medical screening, stamp duty charges, and proportionate risk premium for the period on cover, provided no claim has been made until the cancellation. No free look period is applicable at the time of policy renewal.
A grace period of 30 days from the date of expiry is available to you for renewal. If you renew the policy within these 30 days, the continuity of benefits will be allowed. However, the actual period of cover starts from the date of renewal premium payment. No protection is available between the policy expiry date and the date of renewal premium payment. The Renewal Premium is subject to change. Change of options or plans within the policy is permissible only at the time of renewal.
Each renewal premium is paid and accepted upon the distinct understanding that no alteration will take place in the facts contained in the proposal or declaration herein before. Where a claim for 100% of the Capital Sum Insured is admitted or admissible, Star accident individual insurance policy cannot be renewed for such relevant insured persons. If the claim is less than 100% of the Sum Insured, the company would exclude such disability on renewal in respect of such insured people.
In case the policy is withdrawn or modified with revised terms and premium before approval of the Competent Authority, the insured will be intimated 3-months in advance and accommodated in any other equivalent insurance policy by the company.
The company can cancel this policy on the grounds of misrepresentation, fraud, moral hazard, non-disclosure of material fact, or non-co-operation of the insured by giving him/her a 30-day notice. You also hold the rights to cancel the policy at any time, and in such a case, the company shall allow a refund after retaining the premium at the company’s short period rate, if no claim is made up to the date of cancellation.
