PolicyStreet Introduces Professional Liability Coverage for Kiddocare Babysitters

by April 30, 2024

Malaysian insurtech company PolicyStreet, in partnership with Kiddocare, a Khazanah-backed on-demand care services platform, has announced a new insurance initiative named Kiddocarer Protect+.

This programme aims to provide comprehensive insurance coverage for Kiddocare’s babysitters, known as Kiddocarers, while they are traveling to and working at job locations.

The insurance plan is touted to be Malaysia’s first professional liability insurance tailored for babysitters, offering up to RM1 million in coverage for unintentional bodily injuries or property damage.

This initiative not only enhances safety and trust for parents but also protects the babysitters during their employment.

Additional coverage under the Kiddocarer Protect+ includes benefits for accidental permanent disability, severe burns, and damage to the babysitters’ mobile phones.

Furthermore, in the event of an accidental death, a Dependent Child Supplement provides RM1,000 per child, capping at RM3,000 per family, to support the dependents of the deceased.
