OFW Insurance now extended to SEA-Based Migrant


AFPGEN has now extended its insurance cover to all sea based OFWs.  In partnership with Philippine Life Financial Assurance Corporation and International SOS, OFWs such as seafarers, fishermen, etc can now avail of the Compulsory Insurance Coverage for Agency-Hired Migrant Workers from AFPGEN!

Since April 2014, AFPGEN has been providing the compulsory insurance cover to land-based OFWs.  The Company has provided insurance protection more than 28,800 OFWs and the number would grow even more with the introduction of the sea-based coverage.

OFW Insurance or The Compulsory Insurance Coverage Republic Act (RA) 10022 started its roots with its passage into law on March 8, 2010, amending RA 8042, otherwise known as the Migrant Workers and Overseas Filipinos Act of 1995.  Section 37-A known as Compulsory Insurance Coverage of OFWs focuses its goal on further improving the standard of protection and promotion of the welfare of migrant workers, their families and overseas Filipinos in distress and for other purposes.

OFW Sea-Based Insurance offers the following benefits that are the same as OFW Land-Based coverage:

  • Death due to Accident
  • Death due to Non-Accidental Causes
  • Total Permanent Disability due to Accident
  • Total Permanent Disability due to Non-Accidental Causes

AFPGEN has paid its OFW Claims timely and fairly.  It has a good track record with numerous recruitment agencies, agents, and general agents for OFW.

For recruitment agencies and other interested parties who would like to avail of the compulsory coverage, you may contact Mr Juancho Panotes or Mr Harold Biares through these contact details:
