Homemakers register family members for free insurance, to prepare for unforeseen incidents

By Nazli Ibrahim

SHAH ALAM, Oct 26 — The free insurance provided to Selangor residents has been described by housewives as easing the burden of parents in obtaining coverage for their children.

Wan Nur Laila Muhammed Arifin, 32, said the Skim Insurans Am Selangor (Insan) general insurance scheme is able to protect her family members, in the event of undesirable incidents.

“I have four stepchildren and one biological child. In order to apply for insurance, a lot of money is needed.

“It would be wise to seize the opportunity for our own good. Ill fortune can strike at any time, and should anything occur at least there is protection for the family.

“Applying for it is not a difficult thing to do, as it can be done online in an instant,” she said.

Trader Siti Rosmah Abdullah Sani, 34, said she is relieved as Insan’s availability means she will not have to pay for insurance coverage for herself and her two children.

“Everyone can apply for it, and place our children under the application. Each individual can get RM10,000, and it is important for the family.

“Not everyone can afford to buy insurance, and not applying (for Insan) is a loss we cannot afford. It is very simple, I downloaded the app from Google Play Store with help from the staff,” she said during the Jelajah Selangor Penyayang roadshow in Klang, where she registered.

On October 23, the state government launched Insan during the roadshow at Sultan Suleiman Stadium near here.

Officiated by Menteri Besar Dato’ Seri Amirudin Shari, the free insurance scheme will provide protection to some six million state citizens, with premium costs fully borne by the state government.

He expressed confidence the target of registering one million people registered under Insan can be accomplished, as over 40,000 have done so since it opened on October 1.

During its launch, Amirudin presented Insan certificates to the five recipients as a symbolic gesture.
