In view of the current Covid-19 situation, AmGeneral understands the need to provide financial relief to all impacted policyholders, it has pledged a fund of up to RM1 million through a series of support initiatives and insurance protections, such as Complimentary Bereavement Benefit to all AmGeneral policyholders.

AmGeneral has also reviewed and enhanced its insurance policies by providing value-added and extended coverage which include 3-month complimentary travel insurance extension and interest-free instalment program for corporate non-motor premium warranty policies.

Derek emphasised that it has been AmGeneral’s core value in proactively support and respond to our customers 24/7.

“For our business partners, we will work together in finding out what will be the new ‘normal’ once this is all over. This will include adjusting to the changes, reviewing and ensuring our supports to customers are functional moving forward,” explained Derek.
