By: Thelma C. Bicarme
The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) here awarded recently the P30,000.00 Accidental & Dismemberment Security Scheme (ADSS) Insurance to Eduardo M. Rivera, an agrarian reform beneficiary (ARB) of Sto.Tomas, Maddela, Quirino.
The awarding ceremony was held during the birthday celebration of Gov. Junie E. Cua at the provincial gymnasium.
Rivera enrolled under the Agrarian Reform Beneficiary-Agrarian Insurance Program (ARB-AIP) last December 2013 for his crop insurance. In March this year, he figured in a motorcycle accident that led to the amputation of his right leg.
Being an ARB-AIP beneficiary, Rivera is provided with protection cover up to three hectares and up to three types of insurance coverage that includes rice and corn insurance, high-value commercial crops insurance, livestock insurance, and accident and dismemberment security scheme (ADSS).
Under the Terms and Conditions of the Certificate of Cover, partial disablement qualifies Rivera for the 50 per cent of the principal sum. (TCB/PIA 2-Quirino)
