Standard Chartered Unlimited Cashback Credit Card

I currently have a Standard Chartered Unlimited Cashback Credit card, and is eligible to get 1.5% cashback. However, this cashback did not take into account the premium paid for my annual Personal Accident Insurance policy.
Are all online transactions not eligible for cashback? Or only for insurance-related transactions?
You will need to check directly with the bank. However, most merchants seldom accept now. So you are right, most premiums are excluded for rebates. But what I do know is they do accept the amount fir minimum spending.
On the back end, the card associations will assign merchants a code that summarizes their line of business (this is called the merchant category code - MCC)
Banks generally have exclusions for certain classes of transactions (insurance, topups to prepaid accounts, stock trading accounts are common ones). However, practice is different by each bank so you need to look at the T&C for your particular card on what is excluded.
Any insurance premiums charged to your Unlimited Card (and/or your supplementary credit card) are NOT eligible for cash back scheme.
I suggest you check the terms and conditions of your card properly. Usually, insurance premiums, as well as most other bills such as mobile/hospital bills, are not eligible for cashbacks
