WHAT’S NEW?

New: Global benefits packages powered by Allianz Health

Oyster is partnering with Allianz Health to offer global benefits to your team members. Allianz Health offers extensive health coverage in 165+ countries including dental, vision, and mental health care. You can enroll any new hires eligible for the new global benefits plans using your Oyster account starting January 2, 2023, at which time we will also stop supporting new enrollments into SafetyWing and IMG.

  • We will begin migrating team members who are eligible for Allianz Health in batches between January-May 2023. There will be no gap in coverage and we will contact you with more details. For those who are not based in eligible countries, we will offer compliant alternatives such as robust local benefits packages or other recommendations like allowances. 
  • Your Allianz Health plans will offer significantly improved coverage, better experience, and in some cases an even more economical option than our current offerings. Learn more about the differences between SafetyWing and Allianz here.
