Tenet Sompo Maid Insurance

In Singapore, if you are employing a maid, you are required to purchase an insurance for him/her as mandated by the Ministry of Manpower (MOM). A maid insurance will provide your maid all the support that he/she needs to recover from an illness or accident. Make sure you and your maid are protected with MaidEase, an insurance policy that not only takes care of you but your maid as well.

Key Highlights of MaidEase

Some of the key highlights of MediEase are as follows:

  • Your maid’s repatriation expenses will be covered for travel expenses incurred. This benefit will come in handy if you have to send your maid to her/his home country if they meet with an accident, sickness or disease.
  • The coverage will begin as soon as your maid clears the immigration of Singapore with an In-Principle Approval from MOM or holds a valid work permit.
  • You will get up to S$70,000 as accidental death or permanent disablement benefit.
  • Unlike other maid insurance in Singapore, with MaidEase your maid will be protected from pre-existing medical conditions if he/she has always been insured under the domestic maid insurance policy for more than 12 months with any insurer in Singapore.
  • Counter indemnity will be waived that limits your obligation to S$250 so long as you are not the cause of the breach of the Security Bond.
  • With domestic helper liability, your legal liability to reimburse the third party will be covered.
