The Bank of East Asia

Insurance, MPF & Trust

Underwritten by Blue Cross (Asia-Pacific) Insurance Limited

Your home and family are the centre of your life. However, you may be placing their well-being at serious risk if your domestic helper lacks sufficient coverage. Should your helper suddenly fall sick or get hurt under your employment, the entire financial burden will fall on your shoulders. In some cases, the financial impact could be substantial.

Domestic Helper Protection Insurance helps you fulfil your legal obligations as required by the Employees' Compensation Ordinance and protects you and your helper by providing comprehensive medical, accident, and liability coverage. What's more, two optional riders give you additional security by providing your overseas domestic helper with extra protection against common major illnesses on top of the coverage provided. Whether you hire an overseas domestic helper, a local maid, or a part-time helper, Domestic Helper Protection Insurance allows you, your family, and your helper to enjoy total peace of mind.
