MIC Global partners with Assurekit to provide Loss of Income Cover to India’s workforce

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES (April 2, 2024) – MIC Global is partnering with Assurekit and local insurers in India to provide digital loss of income coverage to employees and gig workers.

MIC’s MiIncome digital reinsurance solution, along with Assurekit’s full stack platform, jointly empowers platforms to support their customers through embedded short-term loss of income programs.

Responding to substantial layoff statistics in India*, Involuntary Unemployment cover is the first product to be developed as part of this broader partnership. This cover provides eligible customers with up to two months of salary benefit if they involuntarily lose their job.

MIC and Assurekit are collaborating on additional products to further protect the Indian market, including protection for gig workers faced with income challenges due to accidents, hospitalization, and weather events.

Jamie Crystal, Co-Founder and CEO, MIC Global, said:

“I am proud to announce our partnership with Assurekit to bring highly relevant embedded loss of income products to India’s employees and workers. Programs supported by our MiIncome digital reinsurance solution, embedded into familiar platforms in India, will provide a welcome safety net to the country’s workforce. I look forward to working alongside Assurekit in 2024 as we continue to develop innovative loss of income products, reaching more corners of the Indian market.”

Assurekit is a full-stack digital insurance platform that enables any company to offer contextual and relevant protection products to their customers in a plug-and-play manner. 

This partnership combines Assurekit’s cloud-based technologies and MIC’s reinsurance solutions, enabling Assurekit and its partners to quickly begin providing insurance products that offer timely payments to help their customers stay on their feet when faced with short-term loss of income, such as involuntary unemployment.

Adarsh Chokhani, Founder & CEO, Assurekit, added:

“Today, the risk of losing income from unforeseen events remains largely unaddressed. At Assurekit, we’re focused on expanding the social security net for every person in India. Finding a partner like MIC, who shares our vision, feels like the perfect match. This is just the beginning; we’re excited about working together to build out more products in the future.”
