Facing a Safer Future with Mandatory Insurance in Indonesia

Exactly on January 12 2023, Indonesia entered a new era in developing and strengthening the financial sector through the enactment of Law Number 4 of 2023 concerning Development and Strengthening of the Financial Sector (UU P2SK). This law is an important milestone in supporting efforts to develop the financial sector as a whole by combining various regulations into one comprehensive regulation, including Law Number 40 of 2014 concerning Insurance.

One of the innovations promoted by the P2SK Law is the establishment of a mandatory insurance program, which will provide protection to all or certain groups in society from certain risks. This program not only provides basic protection, but is also designed to realize the principles of financial inclusion in a more effective way.

Focus on Third Party Legal Liability (TPL) Lakalantas Insurance

One of the important points in the implementation of the P2SK Law is the implementation of mandatory insurance, especially in the context of third party legal liability insurance (TPL) related to traffic accidents (Lakalantas). This is important considering the high level of traffic accidents in Indonesia.

The government together with the regulator, the Financial Services Authority (OJK), are currently drafting a Government Regulation (PP) regarding mandatory insurance, which is targeted to be issued in 2024. The main aim is to ensure that the norms regulated in the PP can be implemented effectively, including in terms of Affordable premium determination, easy premium quotation process, and efficient claim settlement.

Future Challenges and Projections

While these measures are highly desirable to increase the level of public protection, the challenges faced are not insignificant. The insurance penetration rate which is still low, only 2.27% in 2022, as well as the insurance density level which is not yet optimal, shows that there is still a lot of work that needs to be done.

OJK has set ambitious targets through the 2023-2027 Indonesian Insurance Development and Activity Roadmap, namely increasing insurance penetration to 3.2% and increasing density levels to reach IDR 2.4 million per resident. To achieve this target, cooperation between the government, regulators and insurance industry players is needed to educate the public about the importance of having insurance protection.

Hope for a Safer Future

It is hoped that the issuance of government regulations regarding mandatory insurance will be a significant first step in improving road safety and providing better protection for all parties concerned. By prioritizing the principles of transparency, justice and inclusion, we can create a safer and more prosperous environment for all Indonesian people.

As a country committed to improving the quality of life of its people, the implementation of mandatory insurance is an important instrument in achieving this goal. Hopefully, with solid cooperation between the government, regulators and industry players, Indonesia can become an example in implementing mandatory insurance that is effective and inclusive for all its people.

Vehicle Insurance Premium Income Reduces, Claims Increase in Quarter I/2024

Jakarta, 30 April 2024 – The Indonesian General Insurance Association (AAUI) recorded a slowdown in vehicle insurance premium income in the first quarter of 2024, which was triggered by a decline in car sales. Meanwhile, total vehicle insurance claims will increase until March 2024.

According to the Executive Director of AAUI, Bern Dwyanto, the increase in claims was mainly caused by inflation in spare part prices. Nevertheless, Bern said that overall, vehicle insurance premium income was still positive despite experiencing a slowdown. “Premium income has also increased, although it is slowing down,” he told Bisnis on Monday (29/4/2024).

Bern also explained that projections for this year were still waiting for first quarter performance data to see the trend more clearly. However, he emphasized that vehicle, property and credit insurance remains the largest contributor to the general insurance industry.

Data from the previous year shows that motor vehicle insurance will experience growth throughout 2023, with a total premium collection of IDR 19.497 trillion. This growth is supported by the growth of the financing industry sector, the majority of which is motor vehicle financing.

However, data from the Association of Indonesian Automotive Industries (Gaikindo) shows a decline in wholesale car sales of 23.9% and retail sales of 15% in the first quarter of 2024 when compared to the previous year.

AAUI continues to collect and analyze data for the first quarter of 2024, and will provide further projections as the economic and industrial situation develops.
