Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan officials in Makati City will no longer have worries about doing their jobs because they have been insured by the local government for accidents.

Mayor Abby Binay on Wednesday led the distribution of the certification for a personal accident insurance to barangay and SK officials in Barangay Bel-Air.

The insurance, which will come from the Government Service Insurance System (GSIS), will last for a year. The officials will receive P1 million in case of accidental death or dismemberment, P50,000 for medical reimbursement and P10,000 for burial assistance.

A total of 4,419 barangay officials and employees, and 315 SK officials from Barangays Bel-Air, Urdaneta, Magallanes, Forbes Park, San Lorenzo, Dasmariñas, at Guadalupe Viejo were covered by the initial distribution of insurance certificates.

The local government will continue the distribution of insurance certificates to barangay and SK officials from other barangays until March 26.
