WhatsApp is planning to start rolling out health insurance and micro-pension offerings in India. The Facebook-owned company is working with SBI General to launch health insurance products, while HDFC Pension and Singapore-based firm PinBox Solutions are on board for offering micro-pension products.
The new developments come alongside WhatsApp’s digital payments venture – WhatsApp Pay. Alongside its piloting insurance and micro-pension services, WhatsApp is getting deeper into the Indian digital economy with its payments feature and the WhatsApp Business API.
