What is Group Personal Accident Insurance
Group insurance scheme aims to help businesses who would like to cover their employees for risks associated with life-changing events. These include dread diseases, temporary or permanent disability, or death.
A group scheme will have minimum eligibility criteria decided by your employer and RMA such as the number of hours you work per week, or a minimum salary to qualify for the policy.
We offer group insurance as a supplement to our main COID insurance cover for employees. The benefits of the COID Act on which we based our insurance are that it covers all employees, irrespective of their salary grades.

R20 000 paid to the nominated beneficiary in the event of the employees’ death
