When do I receive my claims payout?
Once all completed documents are submitted and assessed by the Zurich Takaful claims department, your claim will generally be approved or rejected within 14 working days.
Why is my claims payout amount different from what it says on the product benefits sheet?
The amount paid out depends on the type of accident and scenario of the claim, in addition to the documents that we receive from the relevant authorities, such as police report, medical report and duration of hospitalization. For full clarification, please contact the Zurich Takaful claims department for further details.
It’s been more than 2 weeks since I submitted my claims, but I have not heard anything yet.
The general service guide of 14 working days for claims assessment only begins once all required documents have been received. It may be that there are some additional documents that are still outstanding from the relevant authorities. If you have not received any response from Zurich Takaful, do contact their claims department at +603 2109 6459 or call us at 1300 82 0010 (ezTakaful) for further clarification. We will be glad to assist you.
Why has my claim been rejected?
The decision to reject or approve a claim is based on the documents received from claimants (you). With these documents, the team will assess the scenario of the accident and decide whether to approve or reject the claim. For further information, we suggest that you speak directly to the Zurich Takaful claims department by calling +603 2109 6459.
