Switching to the new insurance company:
Why is my insurance changing?
How is this insurance different from our previous insurance?
We switched insurers on December 15th and your insurance will be transferred to a new platform, the [Collective] platform. This change is due to your feedback from courier partners so we can provide you the most appropriate insurance.
Your new insurance will be better in several ways:
- We provide coverage for common injuries such as sprains and fractures, as well as medical expenses, hospital care, serious injury, and death. (you can read more about this later)
- Filing a claim will be easy without filling out long forms and tricky questions. Once your claim has been approved, the money will be in your account within 5 days (or even earlier).
Collective staff will be at your disposal throughout, from non-stop customer service to FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) to help you understand insurance.

No worries! Wolt can confirm that you were online when the accident occurred.
How long does it take to receive compensation?
After filing a claim, they will check to see if you are eligible for the claim and whether you have uploaded the appropriate documents. Once your claim has been approved, the money will be in your account within 5 days.
