Bookmark and Share

IGI Group Life Assurance is a life policy which provides death-in service benefits to the employees in common employment or a group of people under appreciable similar exposure. It is designed to provide for the payment of a lump sum of money to the beneficiary(ies) of a deceased member of the scheme.


For Whom


IGI Group Life Assurance policy is open to employers of labour, clubs, associations, unions, religious groups, cooperatives and other friendship and social organizations e.t.c who exist  as a group.
The Pension Reform Act 2004 made it mandatory for all employers of labour having up to five employees to maintain a Group Life Assurance policy for at least 3 times of their annual total emolument. IGI Plc Group Life policy will accept any desired multiple of the total annual emolument/level of benefit above the three times.

  • Death - The policy provides for the payment of the sum assured in the event of the death of a member of the scheme from any cause, natural and accidental.

 

  • Disappearance (Presumed Death) - The policy also provides for the payment of the sum assured for those in common employment in the event that an insured person disappears and is not seen for a period of 12 months and there is sufficient evidence to assume that the member is dead. However, the person receiving the sum will sign an undertaking to refund it if the missing person is subsequently found to be living.
