Subscribers can also claim for the costs incurred against the loss of their personal documents including that of any employed domestic helper. The ‘Home Protection Plan’ also gives subscribers the facility to claim reimbursement for any alternate accommodation in case of their home becoming uninhabitable, for up to 15 days following the accident.
