Cebuana, Foodpanda partner for rider insurance
Foodpanda has announced its partnership with Cebuana Lhuillier to provide mandatory insurance for its riders.
Foodpanda mentioned that mandatory insurance prioritizes benefits that riders can receive if accidents occur on the road. For PHP 280, Foodpanda riders are insured for an entire year. They can receive benefits that amount up to PHP 70,000, such as the Accidental Death, Disability benefit, and Double Indemnity benefit, among others.
“Having a job that requires to be on the road all the time, our hardworking riders are prone to accidents. We want the riders to know that even with that possibility, they are secured, and we can make that happen through this partnership with Cebuana Lhuillier. Their safety and security is always our top priority,” said Jao Manahan, Foodpanda Operations Manager.
According to Foodpanda, mandatory insurance targets to provide help through insurance benefits to riders who might experience accidents.
Since the implementation of the mandatory insurance last January 2021, Jigs Epiz, a rider insuree, was the first to claim his benefit amounting to PHP 10,000 due to an accident that happened during his shift.
“This is a wonderful partnership for both parties as it presents CLIB the opportunity to give our hardworking Foodpanda riders greater assurance that they are safe and secured while on the job and also at the same time proving our commitment to reach out to the vulnerable sector through inclusive and quality insurance,” said Jonathan D. Batangan, CLIB First Vice President and Group Head.
