NCB retenti​on cover​​

No claim bonus (NCB) is a discount, given by an insurer to a policyholder for making no claims during the policy term. NCB can be accumulated over the years and the discount ranges from 20% to 50% on its own damage premium. This is simply a general insurance company's way to reward the customer's good driving behavior.

NCB retention cover is a great way to assure that your safe driving and hard-earned bonus stay protected even if you make a claim. Let’s understand it with an example-

Suppose at the end of 12 months of the policy, the insured did not make any own damage claim. In this case, the insurance company provides the insured with an NCB-based discount on their premium. All the same, if the insured was enjoying an NCB bonus of 45 %, and he/she makes a claim that year, the NCB will be impacted and will be reduced to 0% in the coming year. To safeguard such a scenario, an NCB Retention Cover comes handy. This add-on cover protects the NCB discounts in case the insured makes an Own Damage claim.

Below mentioned are the features of the NCB Retention Cover*​ -

  • Applicable for 1 OD claim
  • Renewal of policy with RGI <= 90 days of the expiry of the policy
  • Claim amount should not be >25% of IDV as mentioned in the policy schedule.​

*Subject otherwise to the terms, exceptions, conditions, and limitations of the Policy.​
