Bergens auto body shares news of changes to SGI Claims process happening soon!  

Saskatchewan drivers now have a new way for processing collision claims through Saskatchewan Government Insurance (SGI), specifically for minor damages, like in a fender bender-type collision. Drivers can soon choose to take their vehicles to an auto body repair shop approved by SGI, where both the estimate and repairs will be done.

 

The minister responsible for SGI Don McMorris said the new setup will allow drivers to have vehicle repairs completed at the same shop where the claim is filed. SGI's claims centres will still be open and employ the same number of staff. They'll still be an option for drivers with minor damages, and they'll continue to handle larger damage, such as total losses. Where the vehicle will go will still be determined when a driver initially files the claim. The government says an audit process is in place to ensure body shops remain objective in their assessment. "People from SGI will be evaluating, you know, a spot evaluation of the body shop to make sure the damage was accurately assessed," McMorris said. "It's a benefit to the customer, it's a benefit to the body shop, as well as SGI. It gets some of that work out of our adjustment centres." McMorris said repair shops will also be subject to annual training.

Approximately 20 repair shops in the province are already doing damage estimates for drivers, SGI said. It hopes 180 shops will be accredited to do so by the end of the year. SGI estimated that there are more than 200,000 auto damage claims in Saskatchewan each year.

Here they share a tip on Deductible Payment Plan:

 

 

You can use the Deductible Payment Plan to finance your deductible over a period of 10 months

We understand that coming up with the deductible can sometimes be tough on your budget.

It doesn't matter how your vehicle was damaged - collision, vandalism, hail or theft - if you have a deductible to pay, and you're eligible, you can access the plan.

You're eligible for the plan if your personal vehicle is both:

 

  • registered in the LV or F classes
  • covered by basic licence plate insurance

You're not eligible for the plan if: 

Getting signed up

 

 

When you first report your claim to SGI, your adjuster will go over the program with you and let you know if you're eligible.

When you take your vehicle to SGI to be appraised, you'll get an application form to fill out. You can do 1 of 2 things:

  • You can fill out the form at that time and attach a void cheque.
  • You can give the completed form and void cheque to the autobody shop of your choice when you take your vehicle to be repaired.

Payment schedule

 

 

Your payments will start once your vehicle is fixed.

When you pick up your repaired vehicle, you must pay the autobody shop a down payment of $100.

For the balance of the deductible, a payment will be automatically deducted from your bank account over a period of 10 months. There is no interest charged, but a one-time administration fee of $30 will be charged with your first payment under the plan.

Maximum number of claims under the plan

 

You're allowed up to 3 claims through the plan at a time, as long as your account with SGI is in good standing on previous claims.

Here Bergens share a tip on Auto claims:

To file an auto claim, follow the steps below after a collision.

 

1. Exchange information with the other driver involved in the collision.

Get the other driver's:

  • name
  • customer number
  • licence plate number

Our Collision Report form (pdf, 55 kb) can help you remember what information to collect. Print a copy and keep it in your glove box.

If applicable, get the names and addresses of any witnesses. Witnesses can be crucial in determining who's at fault or responsible for the collision.

When to report your collision to the police

You must report the collision to the police if any of the following circumstances apply:

  • the collision results in injury or death. If there are injuries, you must also report the collision to 1 of our injury claims offices.
  • it's a hit and run
  • a driver is impaired
  • any of the vehicles involved have to be towed from the scene
  • the collision involves a vehicle that does not have a valid licence plate or is an out-of-province vehicle

If none of the above apply, you only need to report the collision to SGI.

2. File your claim.

To file your claim, you can:

  • use our online auto claim registration service, Auto eClaim
  • call our Dial-A-Claim service during normal office hours at the claims centre closest to your home

Have the following ready when reporting your claim:

  • your driver's licence
  • your vehicle registration
  • if applicable, your auto extension insurance policy number

We'll set up an appointment to have your vehicle appraised and the damage assessed.

3. Meet with an appraiser.

On the day of your appointment, drive your vehicle to the claims centre. The appraiser will assess the damage to your vehicle and the cost of repairs.

If your vehicle isn't safe to drive, we'll arrange to have it towed to 1 of our claims centres.

4. Have your vehicle repaired.

Once the appraisal is done, you'll get a printout outlining the cost of repairs if your vehicle is repairable.

After your adjuster confirms your insurance coverage is in order, you can have your vehicle repaired at the auto body shop of your choice.

See our Vehicle insurance coverage section for details.

5. Authorize payment.

Once your vehicle has been repaired, the body shop will ask you to sign a Certification of Repairs form. This form signifies that you're satisfied with the repairs and authorizes SGI to pay the body shop.
