In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, Prudential Assurance Malaysia Berhad (PAMB) and Prudential BSN Takaful Berhad (PruBSN) has committed over RM 2 million in commitment to providing Covis-19 insurance and takaful protection to customers and non-customers alike.
Prudential Malaysia has enhanced its Special Covid-19 Coverage and will offer a RM1,000 cash relief upon diagnosis and hospitalisation, as well as a RM10,000 death benefit due to Covid-19 from May 1 to Dec 31 2020.
This amount is doubled for Prudential customers who register for the Special Covid-19 Coverage on Pulse by Prudential (Pulse) i.e. RM2,000 cash relief and RM20,000 death benefit.
In response to the continuously evolving situation, we have enhanced this coverage so that we can provide the right level of benefits over a broader population and over a longer period of time to provide peace of mind,” said Gan Leong Hin, Chief Executive Officer of Prudential Assurance Malaysia Berhad.
As for non-Prudential customers, Prudential Malaysia has also set up a RM300,000 fund for non-customers to receive free Covid-19 coverage. Upon registering for the Special Covid-19 Coverage on Pulse, eligible users receive a RM1,000 cash payout as a financial relief upon hospitalisation until the total fund pay-out reaches RM300,000.
Wan Saifulrizal Wan Ismail, Chief Executive Officer of Prudential BSN Takaful Berhad, said, ”With the coverage and its updated benefits, the lump sum payment can help support one’s financial responsibilities, be it bills, hospitalisation costs, or even daily expenses like food for the family. This virus has changed the way we Malaysians live and Prudential is committed to protecting all Malaysians as we get through this together.”
