Jakarta, 6 July 2020 – A survey conducted in Asia related to the impact of Covid-19 pandemic shows that 60% of respondents feels the situation demands them to be more prepared for their finances and protection for their future. When it comes to protection, family is a priority that we always want to protect, both health and financially. In fact, 94,9% of respondents in Indonesia are concerned that their family members will be infected by the disease. Recently, PT Sun Life Financial Indonesia ("Sun Life Indonesia") introduces its latest Sharia product, called Salam Anugerah Keluarga Insurance. The initiative is to support Indonesian people through leading financial protection solutions. The product offers various benefits, with main feature providing comprehensive protection for four family members in one policy.
Elin Waty, President Director of Sun Life Indonesia said, "The Covid-19 pandemic has impacted a lot of sectors, including health, social and economic. Hence, there is an increase in awareness and the need for proper financial planning and protection within the community. With the introduction of its new product, Asuransi Salam Anugerah Keluarga, Sun Life strengthen its position as the pioneer in the country's sharia insurance industry.

A research about community behavior during the pandemic was conducted by Alvara Research team. The results was portrayed in Alvara Survey: Public Behavior During Covid-19. "Significant growth in the number of Covid-19 positive cases in Indonesia, as well as various economic impacts has raised anxiety within the community. Our survey shows that concern about family safety and health were the most dominant (94.9%), while concern about losing their jobs came second (63.3%), and were followed by economic impacts such as rising prices being at third place (61.8%),” explained `Lilik Purwandi, Deputy of CSO Alvara Research Center.
Lilik added, the occuring pandemic, in fact has returned community awareness to the most essential thing in their lives, which is family. Moments with family during a pandemic, on one hand have a positive impact on the quality of family togetherness. While on the other hand, concerns about health, economic conditions to family safety are also increasing. The desire to ensure the comfort and security of every family member becomes a necessity, both now and in the future. One way to ensure peace of mind and future comfort is of course by providing the best financial protection, including insurance.
Unfortunately in insurance, young families are still often faced with choices about who needs insurance protection the most, whether fathers who are the backbone of the family, or mothers who often contribute to household finances as well as financial managers.
"As a parents, we certainly have the desire to awalys attend and provide the best long-term protection for our families. However, it cannot be denied that in the future, various risks in life can also become obstacles. To help Indonesian families achieve their comfort and long-term targets, Sun Life presents innovative solutions through Salam Anugerah Keluarga Insurance product, which provides complete protection for married couples and 2 children in just one policy.
