Yes, it is mandatory to upload copies of your HKID and bank proof through your OneDegree customer account before cancelling your Pet or Critical Illness policy. We require these documents to verify your identity and bank details, ensuring that the premium refund is processed quickly and accurately to the policyholder. Here's how the process works: Once you submit your cancellation request, our initial attempt is to refund the premium to the payment card used for policy purchase. This refund typically takes 7-10 working days, depending on your card issuer. However, if the refund cannot be processed to your card for any reason, we need your bank details on file to redirect the payment. Uploading the copies of your Hong Kong ID and bank proof helps streamline the process and avoid delays in refunding. Therefore, policyholders are required to upload these documents to their account before submitting a policy cancellation request.
