Speaking on the launch Srinivasan Parthasarathy, Chief Actuary & Appointed Actuary – HDFC Life, said, “The pandemic has impacted lives, created vulnerabilities in multiple areas and there is a general sense of uncertainty. One such area is the cost of treatment, in case one were to test positive for COVID-19. The expenses could lead to a financial setback for the family, especially where there is only one earning member.

Financial security is a must right now and consumers need to take concrete steps towards protecting their families’ financial future. Click 2 Protect Corona Kavach has been designed to provide comprehensive financial protection in the current pandemic. In addition to offering life cover, the product also includes a family floater facility which offers options in terms of adding family members into the plan.”
