Etiqa today launched ‘Etiqa Term Secure’ and ‘Etiqa Critical Care’ under the Employee Provident Fund’s (EPF) i-Lindung initiative. Both of the products will be available in the form of both insurance and takaful via the EPF member website starting from today. These products aim to get more Malaysians of the B40 community to be insured without disrupting their monthly budget.
