What you can get

Personal accident protection

From S$60,000, we will cover your helper in the event of accidental death or permanent disability. We will also reimburse her medical expenses in the event of an accident or injury.

Repatriation expenses

In the unfortunate event of death or permanent disability of your maid, we will reimburse the repatriation expenses incurred, up to S$10,000.

Hospitalisation and surgical expenses

We will reimburse you if your helper is hospitalised or needs surgery, including day surgery, up to S$15,000 a year.

Daily payouts

Should your helper be hospitalised, we will provide a daily payout for you to hire temporary help. We will also give a recuperation benefit of up to S$20, for each day your helper is hospitalised.

Medical coverage due to abuse

In the event that your helper abuses a child (up to the age of 12), an elderly (above the age of 65) or a handicapped person in your household, we will cover your loved one’s medical expenses up to S$5,000.

We serve as your Guarantor

Etiqa will serve as your Guarantor and will provide a Letter of Guarantee to the Ministry of Manpower. This frees you from paying S$5,000 upfront for the required Security Bond.
