Gain more peace of mind by insuring your home

The roller coaster of a pandemic that is COVID-19, exacerbated by the chain of destructive typhoons last month, has resulted in a number of businesses shutting down, leading to loss of jobs and properties.

This year has been a harsh reminder to insure ourselves, our loved ones, as well as our hard-earned possessions which can easily vanish during a times of heightened uncertainty.

Malayan Insurance Co. Inc. highlights the importance of having your belongings and property insured during this trying time. But even without the challenge of such pandemic, insurance remains a necessity and not just a luxurious expense, as crime rates take on an erratic direction.

The NCRPO said that Metro Manila recorded 520 cases of the eight focus crimes — murder, homicide, physical injuries, rape, robbery, theft, carnapping of motor vehicles and carnapping of motorcycles — during general community quarantine (GCQ) on June 1 to 30, 321 cases during the modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ) from May 1 to 30, and 539 cases during the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) from March 17 to April 30.

“As we continue to face uncertainties posed by the pandemic, it is imperative for Filipinos to minimize risks as much as they can, this then highlights the need and importance of having insurance protection,” Malayan Insurance said.

The company offers Home Protect, a home protection coverage that provides personal accident insurance, family hospitalization, household employee, valuable items protection, and property insurance coverage in just one product.

The product also provides coverage for cases of burglary and housebreaking, personal liability, accidental breakage of fixed glass, alterations and repairs, alternative accommodation, debris removal, and architect and surveyor’s fees, among others.

Policyholders of the Home Protect insurance are also entitled to Home concierge services by calling the hotline at 8687-8357. The convenient concierge service provides emergency support like telephone medical advice and call for help, as well as referral assistance for electrical, air-conditioning repair, plumbing, locksmith, and house help hiring.
