Claims

The claims department at an insurance company is the section that manages the settling and adjusting of claims. This department is an essential part of any insurance company's operations and is one of its core functions.


Some activities they are responsible for include:

  • Receiving notice of claim from insureds.
  • Adjusting and evaluating whether a loss is covered or not.
  • Determining the amount of money or other compensation to be paid to the insured for insured losses.
  • Investigating claims to determine whether fraud has occurred.
  • Other tasks involving the handling and processes of claims received

Their role is to guide the policyholder along the claims process, investigate the claim for legitimacy and the extent of the damage, and eventually approve or deny a claim based on the insured’s claim filing paperwork, their coverage, and other factors.

The birth of MAA General Assurance Phil., Inc. (MAAGAP) took place when its parent company, MAA International Group Ltd. (MAAIG) from Malaysia ventured to strategically expand its business in Asia. MAAIG is an offshore composite insurance company licensed under the Offshore Insurance Act 1990 in Labuan International Offshore Financial Centre (IOFC) to underwrite life and general insurance and reinsurance business. Gearing for the planned expansion, MAA procured the insurance license of the then Paramount Insurance Corporation and renamed it MAA General Assurance Phil., Inc.
