Optional Covers

Employer’s Liability

MSIG has an option in the maid insurance plan that is closest to the average mid-tier plan. However, it impresses on 1 million dollar accountability to the employer’s liability, which is the highest amount available in the market but it covers the domestic helper when she returns home. The purpose of the employer’s liability coverage is to protect you if your maid is ill or injured and decide to pursue legal action against you.

The three levels of employer’s liability, are:

  • $300,000 for $26.75
  • $500,000 for $37.45
  • $1,000,000 for $69.55

If you think the basic policy has no protection of liability and you are worried about potential lawsuits from your maid or her family, this option is your best bet for maximum protection.
