Trusted Home Insurance in the Philippines
I worked as an OFW for 3 years and like most OFW’s, one of my goals is to have a house of my own. Who wouldn’t want to have a house of their own right? I think it’s everybody’s dream. But we also know that property in the Philippines is expensive especially if you are in Metro Manila. For an ordinary person like me, it would really take years of hard work and huge amount of money to buy one. And just like any other things that you value and worked hard for, you will also do everything to protect it.
Unfortunately, we hear news about families who lost their homes because of fire caused by faulty wiring, open flames and even just lighted cigarette buds. Especially in March which is considered the start of the summer and one the hottest months of the year. It is also considered “Fire Prevention Month” because this is when most number of fires happen. And after summer, here comes rainy season where typhoon and flooding can also damage our homes.
I mentioned earlier that we will do everything to protect our homes because it is valuable to us. From the smallest house contents up to those big LED TV or refrigerator whether it is loaned or fully paid, these all came or will come from our hard-earned money. But the sad part is, most of us Filipinos fail to see the importance of a home and property insurance. I was once an unbeliever of insurance because I thought it’s just an additional expense. And just like a car insurance, it is actually a protective financial shield for the owner’s property in case there is damage due to insured perils.
So as a homeowner, we need an insurance that provides coverage for both potential losses to both structure of the house and its contents and that’s when Malayan Insurance comes in. Their Home Protect Plus is now back and with new and improved coverage. It covers damages resulting to fire, lightning, earthquake fire and shock, and now it also covers Typhoon and Flood (subject to underwriting evaluation and approval). They also now cover volcanic eruption and extended coverage to smoke damage, explosion, vehicular impact and falling aircraft. These insured events cause significant damages to various structures, and this insurance can cover the costs of rebuilding. It also reimburses a homeowner of the repair and replacement costs of damaged household items due to the insured events.
You can refer below for the specific coverages of the policy:
