Under this programme, a RM50 voucher is allocated for eligible Bantuan Prihatin Rakyat (BPR) recipients to help them purchase Perlindungan Tenang products from licensed insurers and takaful operators.
Through this partnership, the Merchantrade Insure Life plan can be redeemed using the RM50 PTV as announced in the 2021 national budget.
