The latest maid insurance promotions, tips and news about maid insurance in Singapore.
Is maid insurance compulsory?
Yes. The Ministry of Manpower requires employers to buy insurance for any foreign domestic helper they hire, to cover work-related accidents and medical costs. You must buy this when hiring a new maid or renewing her permit. As the employer, you must also bear the full costs.
Why is maid insurance important?
Apart from being a legal requirement, maid insurance is important as your helper’s job scope does include some occupational hazards. Should she meet with an unfortunate accident, the insurance payout would help support her family back home. Some maid insurance plans also cover additional outpatient medical costs and third-party liabilities (which you would otherwise be obliged to bear).
How long do maid insurance plans last?
Most maid insurance plans last either 14 or 26 months, to correspond with either a one-year or two-year term of service, plus two months. The extra two months’ coverage is a MOM requirement to protect your maid after her work permit expires. A 14-month plan is lower-commitment while a 26-month plan usually works out to be cheaper.
