As of October 2015, NTUC Income, an insurance cooperative based in Singapore, provides a wide array of insurance products including life, health, personal accident, vehicle and travel insurance, the company's website notes. In addition, NTUC Income offers business insurance; specialized home and lifestyle insurance that includes foreign maid and golfer's insurance; specialized care insurance including insurance for those with autism or Down syndrome; and insurance for students and children, including protection for overseas students and against sports injuries.
NTUC Income's corporate philosophy calls for making insurance available to all segments of society. Its Income Family Micro-Insurance Scheme makes insurance available for free to low-income families with children when needed, according to NTUC Income. It also provides a living assistance plan to help the elderly, covering the risks to which older people are prone. The company's insurance plan for children with special needs provides coverage against accidents and infectious diseases for a population that often cannot obtain insurance. Low-cost health and life insurance options are available for people who tend to be underinsured or uninsured.
NTUC Income provides information about all its insurance products on its website, with live chat and hotlines available for policyholders to speak to advisors. In addition, policyholders can call special numbers dedicated to processing claims and can book their places in line at branches online, as NTUC Income notes.
