SINGAPORE – Life insurance firm Great Eastern and ActiveSG have partnered to launch Active Care, a personal accident protection plan, on Monday (Sept 9) to encourage people to lead healthy lives without worrying about accidents and injuries.

The plan offers 24/7 coverage, which is not limited to sports, for those between three and 70 years old.

Active Care is available exclusively to ActiveSG members for $9 annually and the scheme includes accidental death or permanent total disablement protection of up to $20,000 and medical expense reimbursements of up to $200.

George Chan, whose son Gabriel is a participant in the ActiveSG Football Academy, said: "Active Care is a convenient initiative that offers parents like me an added peace of mind whenever we decide to participate in sporting activities ranging from a simple jog around our estate to group zumba workouts at the stadium."

For every plan purchased, members earn a rebate of $2 that is directly credited to their ActiveSG Wallet. Members can enjoy additional $2 rebates for a limited period of time.

In support of local athletes, each purchase will see a donation of $1 going to the One Team Singapore Fund, an initiative that assists Team Singapore athletes in their training
