The South African Special Risk Insurance Association (Sasria) has set a 10-day deadline for the submission of claims related to the unrest in July last year.
The 10-day term, effective from June 13, includes all outstanding claims for the July riots and those that did not have the necessary information from claimants, Sasria said in a statement this week.
The government insurer said despite the “significant progress” in processing claims, there were claims with which no progress has been made because of a lack of information from clients. As a result, Sasria has decided to implement a 10-day term for outstanding claims.
“Sasria will no longer put effort on these claims and consider them as not taken up and close the files. Where signed agreements of losses have still not been returned to process payments, we will close our files without an option to reopen. The 10-days term is effective as of June 13, 2022. Exception will be for matters under dispute,” according to the statement.
Sasria advised that in the interest of transparency, it has a responsibility to provide information requested by bodies of authority and has been providing details to the South African Revenue Service of settlement amounts and service provider invoices.
