PIAM FLOOD RELIEF FUND FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ)
PIAM Flood Relief Fund is the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)'s initiative by Persatuan Insurans Am Malaysia (PIAM) to support eligible policyholders who were adversely affected by the recent flood during these difficult times, by providing a subsidy towards the mechanical clean-up work done at workshop for vehicles affected directly by the recent flood.
The CSR Fund is a newly established fund, with initial contribution from PIAM and its general insurance member companies.
At this stage, the CSR Fund will be closed once the pledged amount of RM2.43 Million has been fully utilised.
Subsidy is given on per vehicle basis that fulfils the following criteria:
Type of vehicle:
private vehicle; and
Any type of motor policy, i.e.:
Comprehensive Cover with Special Perils Extension;

Motor policy status:

Expired motor insurance at the time of the flood occurred but the vehicle was last insured on or after 1 June 2021.

up to RM100 for motorcycle;
up to RM500 for private vehicle; and

The subsidy is based on actual clean-up cost incurred subject to the prescribed limits according to type of vehicle above.
