HONG KONG, CHINA
- Media OutReach - 25 February 2019 - Chubb today announced the launch of eGroup
Personal Accident Insurance in Hong Kong.
As a global leader in
personal accident and supplemental health insurance, Chubb understands how
employees' injuries can disrupt their business and lead to costly compensation.
In particular, new start-ups and small & medium-sized enterprises (SMEs)
are more vulnerable than large multinationals or conglomerates with regard to
resources and finances. Chubb's eGroup Personal Accident Insurance has been specially developed to help SMEs provide relevant coverage to their
employees as an added staff benefit.
The highlights of the plan include:
- The waiver of the age
limit for policy issuance and renewal.
- Provision of employee
coverage is on an unnamed basis.
- Full terrorism cover.
- Waiver of medical
- 24-hours worldwide
The eGroup Personal Accident Insurance includes
lump sum benefits for accidental death and disablement and lump sum benefits
for medical expenses. There are four fixed plans with
premiums starting from as low as HKD1,000 per policy.
Stanley Wong, Country
President of Chubb's general insurance business in Hong Kong said, "In a buoyant
economy, investing in policies that support employee retention is essential as employers
recognise the high costs of rehiring and training. Chubb comprehends the
challenges faced by the over 300,000 SMEs in Hong Kong which employ
almost half of the workforce in the private sector. Therefore, we have
developed eGroup Personal Accident Insurance to provide a strong safety net for
employees. The plan protects the employer's
business from being disrupted by employees involved in accidents."
