The finaliseRequest transaction is not getting confirmed no matter what I do. I am sure it is failing at the transfer function. I had made the address to address payable also and changed the function too. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

contract InsuranceClaim{
    struct Request {
        address payable insuranceRecipient;
        string personName;
        uint value;
        address payable hospitalRecipient;
        bool complete;

    Request[] public requests;
    address public claimer;

    constructor (address creator) public{
        claimer = creator;

    modifier restricted(){

    function createRequest(string memory personName,address payable insuranceRecipient,uint value,address payable hospitalRecipient) public restricted{
        Request memory newRequest = Request({

    function finalizeRequest (uint index) public payable restricted{
        Request storage request = requests[index];
        request.complete = true;
  • Hi and welcome to Ethereum StackExchange! Could you tell us a bit more about what is the error you get when you try to run it? – Lauri Peltonen Dec 10 '18 at 14:50

Looks like you don't have any ether on your contract. Add payable fallback function to your contract & transfer some ether there before transferring from it.

or make finalizeRequest request payable depending on your logic.

function finalizeRequest (uint index) public payable restricted {

Also, mark request complete before you transfer ether. It's security issue not related to your question.

  • I am sorry but payable was already there but it still isn't working – Vikranth Dec 10 '18 at 8:14
  • Also it is in remix so it already has ether in it – Vikranth Dec 10 '18 at 8:22
  • @Vikranth do you send enough ether on finalizeRequest call? – petro.sidlovskyy Dec 10 '18 at 8:59
  • @Vikranth welcome, if you accept my answer I would appreciate this :) – petro.sidlovskyy Dec 10 '18 at 23:12
