Maid Insurance

Having a domestic helper makes your life easier. What better way to show your appreciation to them than with a comprehensive maid insurance plan? MaidEase is an innovative plan that ensures you and your domestic helper are well covered from unexpected incidents.


MaidEase covers these benefits:

  • Worldwide Personal Accident whereby up to S$70,000 is paid for accidental death or permanent disablement
  • Hospital and Surgical Expenses (including treatment) from Public and Private Hospitals in Singapore as well as Hospitals outside Singapore
  • Waiver of Counter Indemnity which limits your liability to S$250 (instead of S$5,000), so long as you are not the cause of the breach of the S$5,000 Security Bond
  • Domestic Helper Liability which covers your domestic helper’s unforeseen negligence resulting in accidental bodily injury or accidental property damage. This policy covers your legal liability to compensate the third party
