Why You Should Protect Yourself As You Build Your Business

The economic slump brought about by COVID-19 pandemic has wrecked chaos on companies set up in Singapore, especially for small and medium companies. Despite the measures such as the Jobs Support Scheme (JSS) that the Government had implemented to assist in holding back retrenchments and offsetting employees’ wages, the pandemic and its impact are enduring.

The rapidly rising retrenchments and unemployment rates have severely affected many industries especially F&B, aviation, hospitality and fitness services. According to the Ministry of Manpower (MOM), Singapore experienced the worst-ever quarterly fall in employment as retrenchments doubled, from 3,220 to 6,700 worker being laid off in Q2 last year.

Keeping Yourself Protected in These Unpredictable and Tough Times

Times are tough for businesses, despite implementing aggressive cost-cutting measures, many companies have gone through rounds of retrenchments. Even those who run their own business has had to close their operations.

Many find themselves suddenly without an income and financially unprotected. As such, it is critical to make stormy-day plans such as having daily cash payouts when you’re hospitalised or on a long term medical certificate to help you manage medical expenses and you can focus on recovery.

Flexible Ways to Keep Yourself Protected

The unpredictability of illnesses and calamities makes it prudent for us to ensure that we are protected just right, but many of us are still wary of purchasing insurance as there are many common misconceptions that it is complex and confusing.

TRIBE by Income’s Recovery Pack provides cash payouts in the unfortunate event that you are hospitalised or on long term medical leave due to illnesses or injuries. This can give you and your loved one’s peace of mind when you are unable to work and still have bills to pay.

As Singapore’s first subscription-based insurance platform with modular insurance ‘packs’, you can start and stop your insurance packs anytime with no penalty fee. You also have the freedom to customise your own coverage based on your lifestyle and job nature. For example, if the nature of your job is physically demanding, you can choose to get more coverage for the injury. If the nature of the work is more desk-bound, you can opt for more coverage for Illness.
