The premium waiver is on offer until March 31 to all Zurich and OnePath life insurance customers who have been:
- directly impacted by the fires (e.g. are unable to operate their business, have lost income, lost their home, need temporary accommodation), or
- volunteering in fire-impacted regions or are with emergency response teams (to the detriment of their own financial wellbeing).
“By waiving life insurance premiums for our customers impacted directly and for those supporting the firefighting efforts, we hope to ease some of the financial burden our customers face so they can focus on their immediate needs,” Zurich said. “If you have clients experiencing hardship please reach out to your Business Development Manager to arrange the waiver.”
The insurer also offers claims assistance and additional resources to impacted customers.
