MCIS LIFE INKS PARTNERSHIP WITH MERCHANTRADE ASIA TO HELP MIGRANT WORKFORCE GET COVERED FROM RM1 MONTHLY, MOST AFFORDABLE IN MALAYSIA

Petaling Jaya, 26 February 2021: MCIS Insurance Berhad (MCIS Life), a pioneer life insurer in Malaysia since 1954, has teamed up with Merchantrade Asia Sdn Bhd, Malaysia’s largest money services business, to offer a life insurance protection plan to Malaysians and foreigners alike, targeting to specifically benefit the underserved communities in Malaysia.  The new plan is most timely given the Covid-19 pandemic and lack of accessibility to affordable insurance and healthcare.

Speaking at the signing ceremony to kick-start the partnership, MCIS Life CEO and Managing Director, Prasheem Seebran, said, “We believe that everyone should be able to have access to life insurance. Migrant workers play a significant role in driving the country’s economic growth. So, it is important to ensure this segment of the population, which works alongside Malaysians, has equitable access to financial protection during uncertain times. This is critical to give them peace-of-mind. To date, we have paid out three claims amounting to RM16,000 to the beneficiaries in a foreign country, which were processed within five working days.”
