1

Does MaidPlus meet the Ministry of Manpower's (MOM) requirements for foreign workers?

MaidPlus is a comprehensive package of benefits covering accidental death or disablement, hospital and surgical expenses, wages and levy reimbursement, repatriation expenses, guarantee bond and other benefits.

These include MOM’s requirement of (i) Hospital & Surgical Expenses of at least $15,000 a year and (ii) Personal Accident of $60,000 covering death and personal disablement for the foreign domestic maid.

2

How does the Insurance Guarantee Bond work?

We will issue a Letter of Guarantee as a security bond on your behalf to the Ministry of Manpower ("MOM").  
If you require, we will also issue a Letter of Guarantee to the Philippine Overseas Labour Office in Singapore ("POLO") on your behalf.
If a demand is made by MOM and/or POLO as the case may be, we will first make the payment and recover any paid sums from you under the policy conditions of the section on Insurance Guarantee Bond.
You can purchase the optional cover for the Waiver of Counter Indemnity in respect of the Letter of Guarantee to MOM, paying only $250 for the excess for your account.

3

When will the Insurance Guarantee Bond be transmitted to MOM?

The Insurance Guarantee Bond will be transmitted electronically to MOM as follows:

  • For a new hire or transfer case – within 14 days before the commencement date of the insurance
  • For renewal – 2 working days after your application is accepted by us
4

What is the difference between Medical Expenses benefit and Hospital & Surgical Expenses benefit?

Medical Expenses under the Personal Accident section of MaidPlus cover the cost of treatment (including out-patient treatment) due to accidents only. The cover under Hospital & Surgical Expenses is wider as it extends to medical expenses incurred as an in-patient of a Hospital as a result of illnesses or accident. Medical expenses incurred up to 90 days pre and post hospitalisation and day surgery are also covered under Hospital & Surgical Expenses.

5

How does the Wages & Levy reimbursement benefit work?

MaidPlus pays a fixed sum per day up to 30 days if your Maid is hospitalised as a result of an injury or illness so long as Hospital & Surgical Expenses benefit is payable.

6

How does the Alternative Domestic Help benefit work?

This benefit relieves an employer by reimbursing a fixed daily sum up to 30 days for the cost of hiring alternative domestic help during the period of your Maid's hospitalisation due to a covered injury or illness.

7

Will my Maid be covered when she returns to her home country for holiday?

When your Maid goes on holiday in her home country, she will be covered only for the Accidental Death and Permanent Disablement benefit provided her work permit is not cancelled. All the other benefits will resume upon her return to Singapore.

8

Can I buy the Philippine Overseas Labour Office (POLO) Bond Midway?

Yes, you can buy the POLO Bond midway if you are an existing MaidPlus policyholder. The cover will end on the same date as the period of insurance of your existing policy. For more information, please call us at 6827 7602 for assistance.

9

Do I get a refund if I cancel my MaidPlus policy?

If you cancel the Policy, you will receive a refund of premium based on the Company's short period rates for the unexpired period of insurance, subject to a minimum charge of $50. There will be no refund if the Policy is cancelled after 180 days from the commencement date of the insurance.

10

How do I make a claim?

Please contact our Claims Department as soon as possible after any event giving rise or likely to give rise to a claim and complete a Claim form to facilitate the claim process. Written proof of the accident such as police report, doctor's report, original medical receipts, invoices and all supporting documents must be furnished as proof of claim.
