  1. RI’s Biggest Insurance Case, What’s the Fate of the Customer?

Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – 2022 will be a year of transition from the Covid-19 pandemic to a new normal. Not only society, but also the business world must be transformed to deal with it.

It cannot be said that this year has been smooth sailing, it has also been full of turmoil, especially in the homeland insurance business. Closing this year, the Financial Services Authority (OJK) revoked the business license of PT Asuransi Jiwa Adisarana Wanaartha (Wanaartha Life/PT WAL) as a Life Insurance Company because the company was unable to comply with the conditions which led to the imposition of a Business Activity Restriction (PKU) sanction.

Sanctions are imposed on WAL due to violations of the minimum solvency level, minimum investment adequacy ratio, and minimum equity that are not in accordance with the provisions of laws and regulations in the field of insurance. Since the revocation of WAL’s business license, Shareholders, Directors, Board of Commissioners and WAL Employees are prohibited from transferring, guaranteeing, pledging or using assets, or taking other actions that can reduce assets or reduce the value of assets of PT Asuransi Jiwa Adisarana Wanaartha.

It is predicted that the fate experienced by WAL will also be experienced by PT Asuransi Jiwa Kresna (Kresna Life). OJK Chief Executive for Non-Bank Financial Industry Supervision (IKNB) Ogi Prastomiyono said that his party assesses that there is still an opportunity for a company like Kresna Life to submit its financial restructuring plan by the end of this year.

Kresna Life has been sanctioned with revoking its business license since March 2021. This is because the PKU sanction for Kresna Life was given on December 7, 2020.

Currently, the OJK has formed a special supervision team for troubled insurance companies. In total, there are 13 insurance companies being supervised, including Kresna Life. In detail, seven companies come from the life insurance industry. Meanwhile, the remaining six companies come from the general insurance industry including reinsurance companies. There are no details from the OJK, but several companies are well known, such as AJB Bumiputera 1912.

On the other hand, some time ago, PT AJB Bumiputera will start paying claims in two stages. . The first phase will be carried out in February 2023 and the second phase will be carried out in February 2024.

Unfortunately, the payment mechanism is still unknown. BPA RM spokesperson, Bagus Irawan, ensured that claim payments went well and were in accordance with applicable regulations.

“The point is that AJB Bumiputera is currently waiting for the RPK which has been perfected and submitted again to OJK RI for approval and ACC,” Bagus said to CNBC Indonesia, Tuesday (6/12/2022).

Referring to POJK 17 of 2017 article 4 paragraph 5b the sanction for Restricting Business Activities (PKU) is a maximum of three months and if the violation is not completed then the sanction for revoking the business license can be carried out.

Kaleidoscope 2022: Steep Road for the Insurance Industry 

JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com – The Indonesian insurance industry must go through a steep road throughout 2022. Since the beginning of the year, the insurance industry has been shaken by cases that dragged three insurance companies regarding unit link products. 

After this incident, the OJK immediately responded by issuing regulations regarding investment-linked insurance products (PAYDI) or unit-linked. 

In addition, many life insurance companies have stumbled on defaults and continue to be under scrutiny. Starting from AJB Bumiputera, Jiwasraya, Kresna Life, to Wanaartha Life. 

The following is a list of events related to insurance summarized by Kompas.com in the 2022 Kaleidoscope: 

  1. Unit Link 

Dispute Victims of investment-linked insurance products (PAYDI) or unit-linked insurance companies became a hot topic at the beginning of the year. 

Unit link insurance victim communities Prudential, AXA Mandiri, and AIA have been recorded as holding several mass actions in front of the Financial Services Authority (OJK) building. 

Unit link insurance victim community coordinator Maria Trihartarti has repeatedly asked the OJK to be firm in dealing with this case. 

“OJK is an authority. So, use their authority to solve this. OJK should not be afraid of insurance companies. Even though it is the customer’s money that is paid, they should put more weight on consumer protection,” he told Kompas.com.

  1. Customers encouraged to go to LAPS SJK 

Meanwhile, three insurance companies involved in the unit link issue opened their voices regarding the action taken by the insurance victim community. 

The three companies that were dragged into the unit-linked insurance product case were Prudential, AXA Mandiri and AIA. 

Prudential Indonesia Chief Marketing and Communications Officer Luskito Hambali said that his party had tried to resolve complaints from each individual in the group. 

“Prudential Indonesia is committed to solving this problem in accordance with applicable regulations,” he said in his statement, Wednesday (23/3/2022). 

He further reminded that the OJK has advised groups that make complaints about unit link products to continue dispute resolution to the Financial Services Sector Alternative Dispute Resolution Institution (LAPS SJK). 

In the same vein, AXA Mandiri Compliance Director Rudy Kamdani said that apart from settlement through the LAPS SJK, his party had also resolved a number of customer complaints directly.

“We will obey and implement whatever decision LAPS SJK as an independent dispute resolution institution has in accordance with the law, including if the decision requires premium returns to customers,” Rudi said in a statement, Tuesday (22/3/2022). 

Meanwhile, Director of Legal Compliance and Risk of PT AIA Financial Rista Qatrini Manurung also gave a similar response. 

“We understand that there are still a number of parties who have not been able to accept the solutions offered. For this reason, in accordance with the advice from the OJK, we have officially announced a unit linked complaint resolution scheme through the LAPS SJK for this customer group,” he said. 

  1. OJK Issues Unit Link Rules The 

Financial Services Authority issued Circular Letter of the Financial Services Authority Number 5/SEOJK.05/2022 concerning Insurance Products Linked to Investment (SEOJK PAYDI) or known as unit link, Wednesday (23/3/2022). 

At that time, the Chief Executive of the OJK IKNB Supervision, Riswinandi, said that SEOJK PAYDI regulated the implementation of PAYDI by insurance companies and sharia insurance companies, including sharia business units, which took effect on March 14, 2022 

. for insurance companies, so that the marketing of PAYDI products or unit link does not cause problems in the future,” he said in a press statement. 

He added, SEOJK PAYDI encouraged improvements in three main aspects, namely marketing practices, information transparency, and PAYDI asset management. 

He hopes that improvements in marketing practices and information transparency can ensure that PAYDI policyholders truly understand the PAYDI being purchased. This includes insurance benefits, costs and risks borne by the policyholder. 

Furthermore, in the marketing process, the company must conduct an assessment of the needs and capabilities of the policyholder, the risk profile of the policyholder, and ensure that the PAYDI purchased is in accordance with the results of the assessment. 

In addition, he said the company needed to provide an accurate, clear and complete explanation regarding the PAYDI specifications being marketed. The company also confirms the policyholder’s understanding of the PAYDI purchased. 

  1. Installment Promise to Pay Claims

Member Advisory Board (BPA) AJB Bumiputera 1912 decided to start paying claims to policyholders next year. This was discussed when the BPA AJB Bumiputera 1912 held an extraordinary session (SLB) from 29 November to 1 December 2022.

BPA Bumiputera Spokesperson RM Bagus Irawan said, regarding the payment of AJB Bumiputera 1912 claims, the company will start making payments in the first phase. 

“The plan (the first stage) will be carried out in February 2023,” he said in an official statement, Monday (5/12/2022). 

He added, BPA had also estimated that the second phase of AJB Bumiputera’s claim payments would be made in February 2024. 

  1. OJK Revokes Wanaartha Life Business License 

OJK revoked the business license of PT Asuransi Jiwa Adisarana Wanaartha (Wanaartha Life) on Monday (5/12/2022). 

Chief Executive of OJK’s IKNB Supervision Ogi Prastomiyono explained, this revocation was carried out because Wanaartha Life or PT WAL was unable to meet the solvency ratio (risk based capital) set by OJK according to applicable regulations of 120 percent. 

“This is because PT WAL is unable to cover the difference in liabilities with assets, either through capital injection by controlling shareholders or inviting investors,” he said in a press conference, Monday (5/12/2022). 

Ogi explained, the high difference between liabilities and assets was an accumulation of losses due to the sale of a product similar to a saving plan. 

He explained, Wanaartha Life sells products with definite returns that are not matched by the company’s ability to get returns from managing its investments. 

In addition, this condition was engineered by Wanaartha Life so that the financial reports submitted to OJK and published financial reports did not match actual conditions. 

President Director of Wanaartha Life Adi Yulistanto said, the company is known to only have assets of less than IDR 270 billion. Meanwhile, the company’s total liabilities reached IDR 15.84 trillion. 

  1. OJK Check Savings Plan Insurance Products 

OJK will review and conduct a survey of savings plan products offered by insurance companies. 

OJK Chief Executive for Non-Bank Financial Industry Supervision (IKNB) Ogi Prastomiyono said that this savings plan product often has problems with a number of insurance companies. 

One of them is the case that occurred at PT Asuransi Jiwa Adisarana Wanaartha (Wanaartha Life) and PT Asuransi Jiwasraya (Persero). 

Saving Plan is a type of insurance product that offers life insurance for a certain period of time as well as savings or investment benefits that can be disbursed. 

  1. The Migration of Jiwasraya Policy to IFG Life Has Not Been Completed 

The process of transferring or migrating the Jiwasraya policy to PT Asuransi Jiwa IFG (IFG Life) has not shown significant progress. 

Corporate Secretary of IFG Life Gatot Haryadi said that, until November 2022, there were 157,266 of the Jiwasraya policies that had agreed to the restructuring. Total liabilities from the number of policies were recorded at IDR 30.4 trillion. 

“In addition, the company has made claims benefit payments of IDR 5.24 trillion,” he told Kompas.com, Saturday (18/12/2022). 

Thus, Gatot revealed, the acquisition of IFG Life’s total assets amounted to IDR 30.32 trillion. This number is not significant when compared to reports on policy migration in semester I-2022. 

At that time, IFG Life Director of Finance and Investment Farid Azhar Nasution said, IFG Life had received 157,247 policies until Semester I-2022. 

“Meanwhile, the value of the liability is IDR 28.8 trillion or around 87.2 percent,” he said in a press release, Friday (5/8/2022). 

From this data it is known that during the third quarter of 2022, the Jiwasraya policy migration process only added 19 policies and the value of its liabilities increased by IDR 1.6 trillion. 

Those are the various events that have occurred in the insurance industry throughout 2022. Some predict that the insurance industry will have a lot of potential next year, especially for traditional insurance. This needs to be accompanied by the insurance industry’s efforts to improve and implement good governance.
