COVID-19: Special S$1,000,000 support fund for our customers

These challenging times call for us to stand together in the fight against COVID-19 outbreak. As a company, Manulife Singapore is committed to standing shoulder to shoulder with our customers.

To support our customers in this difficult period, we have set up a S$1 million COVID-19 support fund and introduced two specially-designed benefits to enhance our protection coverage for all customers:

(1) New: Diagnosis Benefit(s)

Customers who are diagnosed with COVID-19 in Singapore will receive a one-time immediate cash benefit of S$1,500.

If the policyholder with a confirmed diagnosis of COVID-19 is hospitalised for 5 days or more, an additional cash benefit of S$2,000 (i.e. a total of S$3,500) would be payable.

(2) Additional Death Benefit

In the unfortunate event that death occurs as a result of the diagnosis of COVID-19, an additional lump sum of S$30,000 will be paid out on top of the death benefit from the customer’s existing policy.

This is part of our continuous support to the community amid the COVID-19 outbreak, with our recent donation of S$100,000 to The Courage Fund to uphold those at the forefront of the fight.
