JP Morgan to launch family homecare scheme

JP Morgan is to launch a family homecare scheme, which includes up to six weeks at-home assistance in the event of an accident or unforeseen illness.

The Insured Family Homecare scheme, which will go live on 1 April 2013, includes personal care, domestic help, meal preparation, and transport to and from the hospital.

The product, provided by Allianz Global Assistance, will be available to all of the bank’s UK-based permanent employees. It will also include the option to extend cover the employee’s partner and parents.

Adam Brooke, employee benefits manager, UK at JP Morgan, said: “We are always looking for ways to enhance our employee benefits scheme, ensuring we continue to attract and retain top talent.

“Insured Family Homecare brings our employees and their closest family access to a new level of cover and added peace of mind when they need it most.”
