GROUP PERSONAL ACCIDENT INSURANCE SCHEME
Working in today’s world of volatility, uncertainty and ambiguity requires continued focus on employee safety. Companies committed to being Employers of Choice are creating safety nets for their workforce including the provision of a Group Personal Accident Insurance Scheme. In today’s race for talent, an insurance plan to cover an employee in the event of accidental death or total and permanent disability is no longer a nice-to-have. It has since formed a standard part of an employee benefits program.
WHAT IS GROUP PERSONAL ACCIDENT COVER?
The Group Personal Accident (GPA) Insurance Scheme encompasses extensive coverage against accidental death or injury. It offers lump sum benefits which pays out on a sliding scale based on the injury incurred from the accident and it is also renewable every year. Examples of these could be:
- Loss of a thumb or finger
- Loss of hearing
- Second and third degree burns
- Broken bones
One of the best features of a group personal accident cover is that it generally applies 24/7 throughout the world. Therefore, even if your company employs people who spend most of their time either travelling to foreign locations, such a plan will still benefit them.

HOW DOES GROUP PERSONAL ACCIDENT COVER WORK?
Group Personal Accident Insurance plans provide a strong safety net for employees and employers against accidental death or injury. The insurance covers the expenses and compensates the insured group members for any injury sustained in the course of their lives (except injuries obtained due to excluded causes). Group members are protected worldwide 24/7. The general benefit includes the following:
15 to 20 additional coverages, such as dependent child education supplement and trauma counselling benefits, are often included in the policy to provide extensive protection. Policies can be extended to include an employee’s immediate family members who’re traditionally uninsured or under-insured.
Loss of income due to illness can also be included in a Group Personal Accident Insurance policy. This can support group members undergoing medical treatment which renders them unfit to work.
As these policies can be tailored to your businesses specific needs, please contact our team and we will help to pair you up with an insurer that will work best for you and your business.
