Retention is a percentage (often 5%) of the amount certified as due to the contractor on an interim certificate that is retained by the client. This ensures the contractor properly completes the works required under the contract.
Dear Valuable Clients and Partners,
Following the suspension of activities at workplace premises under the elevated safe distancing measures announced by the Ministry of Health (MOH) on 3rd April 2020, we would like to announce the following changes to our work so as to continue our service to our customers.
AWG Insurance Brokers is a key member of the financial service industry and we are exempted from the suspension. We will continue to provide services to our customers, but with the following measures and changes.
Closure of Office to walk-in Customers.
We will no longer allow walk-in submission of documents. The office will not be opened to the public and you will need to submit any Original Documents to our Letter Box placed at our office. If Original is not required, we will encourage sending via email. This is to reduce human contacts and reducing the risk of infection.
Working from home
Our staff and management will be taking turns to work at home. We will have a reduced workforce during this period. Many insurance companies also have their staff working from home. You may still contact your servicer at the DID in their email.
We will not be able to receive cash payment from customer and all payment is to be made via Paynow with UEN No : 199002234G, QR Code (reflected on our debit note) and Cheques. Please indicate the policy/policies number that you pay and email to firstname.lastname@example.org for any funds transfer
MAS has also announced recently on the availability of premium installment. We have not gotten any update from insurers as of today and will update you soonest once we have any information.
Claim function is probably the most important part of our existence. We continue to assist and advise you on any claims matter. For claims payment, we would advise that you opt for direct fund transfer to your designated account number if the option is available.
We apologize if there is any inconvenience caused and wish you good health amidst this difficult time.
