With an average of 20 tropical storms entering the Philippines every year, it is important to prepare for the worst, lest nature leaves us sick, displaced or with ravaged homes. Apart from stocking up on food and catching up on home repairs in time for the rains, the best way to be prepared for disastrous calamities is through insurance.
About 700 people are hospitalized due to typhoon-related injuries. During these trying times, life insurance helps cover some, if not all of the hospital bills and eases one’s financial burden. If the policy holder unfortunately dies during the storm, life insurance would pay out his surviving family members to make sure that the family is stable financially even with the loss of a loved one.
Country Bankers Insurance Group (CBIG) has these situations in mind as it offers secure, very affordable insurance plans fit for every Filipino’s needs. The CB Kalinga is currently, the most affordable and comprehensive insurance plan, that has become very popular especially among cooperatives, NGOs and financial institutions catering to microfinance. It is a popular choice among said institutions to insure members and provide assistance especially during calamities.
