The Panamees Union for airline pilots, Unión Panameña de Aviadores Comerciales (UNPAC), is now offering income protection to its members.
The insurance carrier MAPFRE has established an affinity agreement for income protection insurance with the professional association UNPAC which has more than 1,400 members. Coverage is provided in the event of both accident and illness, and includes preventive healthcare costs. As is quite common in South America, coverage also includes rebates at farmacies, labs, and dental facilities. Cover is also provided to pilots in Colombia and Cental-America.
