Adoption of technology has helped the industry to improve in many ways and with the help of technology and mobile phone, motor insurance policyholders can now verify genuineness of their policies online real-time, using a dedicated platform or code such as askniid.org or the USSD code *565*11#.
Indeed, the Nigerian insurers have invested heavily in acquiring technology to make its operations seamless and accessible to its customers hence the introduction of WWW.askniid.org
The WWW.askniid.org is where all insurance companies and agents are expected to upload the details of any motor insurance policy issued for record keeping and authentication. Therefore, any motor insurance policy that you buy and cannot be verified on the NIID portal is not authentic – even if it was bought from an insurance company.
