  1. Hi George, ang credit card mo ba is RCBC or RCBC Bankard? Call YGC Customer Service at (02) 894-2890 or 1-800-10-942-3700 (toll free) for provincial line. Based sa research ko, Scholar Protect is a product offered by RCBC Bankard, although it is underwritten by Malayan, so call RCBC Bankard or the YGC number. Kung meron itong statement na ito sa policy mo –> “The product will cover up to 4 children with ages 3-21 years; single; and still studying at the time of claim”, sana when your child turned 21 and one day (or depende sa kung paano sila mag-determine ng age), napa-stop na itong charging.

  4. Danvil Plans, Inc. stopped paying the amount due me after my plan matured on June 30, 2011. They still owed me P90,000. The Conservator assigned was Atty. Teresita L. Caalim who also stopped responding to my inquiries. I am Lilian L. Castro, 71 yrs. old, widowed in 2005. I need information on the exact status of Danvil. Can the Insurance Commission help me recover the balance Danvil owes me? I need this amount badly to help me buy medicines I need for my hypertension, diabetes, and arthritis. Help me, pls!
