Tokio Marine To Offer “Stalking Insurance”

December 13, 2000

According to the Kyodo news agency, Japan’s largest general insurer, Tokio Marine & Fire Insurance Co., will begin offering an insurance product in January to women who are the victims “stalking.”

The coverage will be available through an alliance with a major security service provider, that will help women defend against repeated anonymous telephone calls, pornographic and obscene communications and staking out the victim’s residence, by collecting evidence and contacting the police.

With premiums at a maximum $40.62 a month the policy would be widely available, but it’s unclear if women who are current victims of stalkers could apply for the coverage.
