One Million Filipinos Insured By Cebuana Lhuillier For #NationalPilipinoProtektadoDay

Posted on Jul 28 2016 - 1:02am by Lanie

After a series of presscons and roadshows, July 21 became a great day for 1 million Filipinos as Cebuana Lhuillier celebrated its accomplishment in reaching its target number of microinsurance protected citizens. The National Pilipino Protektado Day had been a milestone worthy to be waited as Cebuana Lhuillier gave away one million free microinsurance to different sectors of the community, with priority to those who are in the marginalized sector. In fact, much bigger than that, the company’s vision is to build disaster-resilient communities and help the Insurance Commission achieve its vision of protecting 80% of the Filipinos with microinsurance by 2020.

Below: Cebuana Lhuillier President and CEO, Jean Henri Lhuillier talks about how the company reached its milestone of 1million microinsurance covered Filipinos

Cebuana Alerto App

To further strengthen the Filipinos protection, an effective alert system should be in place and what better way to do that than by using a mobile app which can be easily accessed by anyone anytime. Cebuana Alerto App is an Android app designed to provide real-time vital information about disasters within the Philippines. In a bird’s eye view, here are the key benefits when you install the app on your phone:

1. real time notification in the event of disasters such as typhoon, earthquake, fire and flood.
2. live newsfeeds from government agencies involved in disaster protection such as

  •  Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA
  • National Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council (NDDRMC)
  • Department of Education (DEPED)
  • Commission on Higher Education (CHED)
  • Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA)
  • Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH)

3. Cebuana Lhuilliers insurance products which can be bought online through the app
4. a “Safe Button” special feature that will automatically notify and send an “I AM SAFE” SMS message to the intended recipient about the user’s current state during a disaster.


It was interesting to realize how serious Cebuana Lhuillier is in improving our microinsurance protection by leading the creation of MIAAPI (Microinsurance Agents Association of the Philippines), an organization who will take care of the microinsurance agents. With this agency, we can expect that the microinsurance agents will be able to fully take care of the plan holders, understand their insurance policies, and make their plans easily accessible when they are much needed.

Cebuana Lhuillier is also set to launch an online platform for insurance donations called OurHelp later this year. Connecting donees in the Philippines and donors from all over the world through a dedicated website, this crowdfunding website further aims to provide quality insurance protection awarded to the most vulnerable sectors in the form of premium donation from socially aware enterprises.

    That’s a great step for Cebuana. I always like companies who never settle for the present. They always try to improve and be better.

    This is a great initiative for Cebuana. I sometimes remit payments thru them as well. I didn’t know they have an app!

    Wow, I’d love to check out that app and ask my hubby and kids to install it on their phones so that I don’t need to worry so much whenever they’re out and there’s bad weather. Great job from Cebuana Lhuillier!

    This is a good advocacy. I actually share this to the taxi drivers whenever I ride a cab.

    I’ve never used Cebuana Lhuillier’s services before but now I’m curious about their insurance offers!

    I am very glad to read this! I am honestly surprised that this kind of movement would come from the private sector rather than the government, but just moves me and I hope they can really help a lot of moms and their respective families through this endeavor. 🙂

    What a wonderful move for Cebuana to make Pinoys lives better. 🙂

    I love the part when the president Lhuillier said that they want to be socially relevant that is why they do social duties for our fellow Filipinos. 🙂

    What a great initiative. Any form of insurance is a blessing in this time and age.

    I feel glad knowing that there are companies that know how to give back. Great venture for Cebuana Lhuillier!

    When disaster happens, it may lead this sector to a “cycle of poverty,” as they take out high-interest loans or default on existing loans, sell assets and livestock to lessen their exposure to such extreme events. So I find this a great advocacy. This will really help those who need it!
