Telenor Pakistan yesterday – in collaboration with MicroEnsure Pakistan (Pvt.) Limited and Jubilee Life Insurance Company Limited — announced its mobile insurance product aimed at offering affordable and hassle free insurance service to its prepaid customers, many of whom have no other insurance cover.
Talkshawk Mohafiz Zindagi Beema is claimed as free insurance offering that will enable Telenor Talkshawk subscribers consuming a balance of at least Rs. 200 per month to avail life insurance — in the event of death due to any cause – ranging from Rs. 20,000 to Rs. 100,000 for the next month, depending on their monthly mobile usage.
Talkshawk subscribers can avail this free of cost service by simply dialing *345*101# from their mobile phones.
Enrolment for Talkshawk Mobile Insurance is absolutely free and doesn’t require anything other than just dialling the above given USSD string. No medical examination or paper is required at all.
Once enrolled in to the Talkshawk mobile insurance plan, your current month’s airtime consumption will determine the insurance value covered during the next month.
Below are the insurance cover slabs:
|Mobile balance usage this month||Free life insurance cover for next month|
|Rs 200 to 299||Rs.20,000|
|Rs 300 to 499||Rs.30,000|

|Rs 700 to 899||Rs.70,000|
|Rs 900 and above||Rs.100,000|
Which means, subscriber will have to consume at least Rs. 200 after enrolment/registration to get insurance cover next month. Below than Rs. 200 airtime consumption will void your insurance till the time you use Rs. 200 or above during any given month.
