Maid insurance available at Pos Malaysia outlets

Employers can now purchase insurance protection plan for their foreign maids at Pos Malaysia outlets nationwide.

Exclusively designed and underwritten by RHB Insurance Berhad, the insurance plan, also known as "Pos Maid Insurance", is meant for foreign maids working in Malaysia from countries like Indonesia, the Philippines, Vietnam and others.

In a statement, Pos Malaysia said the scheme allows employers and households to provide personal accident coverage for their foreign maids in the event that the maids met with an accident or death, or an unexpected accident or damages, whether bodily injury or property damage of third party due to the negligence of the maids.

It said employers could choose to purchase the 12-month or 24-month period of insurance with a selection of four protection plans at 703 Pos Malaysia outlets nationwide.

Pos Malaysia said with a premium of as low as RM50 annually, the insurance plan was beneficial for both employers and maids as it provided a wide range of benefits.

Pos Malaysia group managing director and chief executive officer Syed Faisal Albar said the initiative provided convenience and accessibility for customers to purchase insurance plans at the nearest Pos Malaysia location.

"In addition to all Pos Malaysia outlets, a Mobile Pos outlet (Pos-On-Wheel) is also stationed at the Indonesian embassy here for customers to conveniently purchase their Pos Maid Insurance prior to renewing their maid's passport," he added.
