Group Term Life Insurance


Life Insurance is often overlooked when you are crafting a bulletproof employee benefits scheme for your Singapore teams, yet it offers vital protection to those dependent on your employees. Life insurance can seem like something that needs to be dealt with ‘later, at home’ and often it does not fall into the remit of the what the employer provides for their people as part of their overseas contracts despite being a common benefit in many markets. This is quite an oversight given what is at stake for an employee, particularly if they have a family, and especially when they are living away from their usual support networks. Offering this kind of financial security is also a fantastic opportunity for employers to show their people that they are genuinely valued. Give one of our employee benefits experts a call today, and they can walk you through the options that are available to you and your teams.

What is Group Term Life Insurance?

This is a type of life insurance that is offered to a group of people by an employer. Unlike Individual Term Life policies, Group Term Life policies are annually renewable. If the employer offers this benefit, it generally covers employees throughout their tenure with the company. In the unlikely event that an employee dies, becomes permanently disabled or is diagnosed with a terminal illness whilst employed, this group policy provides a lump sum pay out to the beneficiaries of that employee. As with most group medical benefits, the group term life insurance is generally less expensive than individual term life policies. Given how affordable it is, offering this benefit provides peace of mind your globally mobile employees and their families whilst living overseas. One of our employee benefits team would be happy to talk through the details with you. Just drop us a line here and we will set a meeting to go through the ins and outs of group term life insurance with you.

What’s included in a group term life insurance policy?

A comprehensive employee benefits scheme that includes group term life should contain adequate coverage in the event of any of the following:

  • Death due to any cause
  • Total and permanent disability
  • Upon diagnosis of a terminal illness

A beneficiary can only claim once for each one of the above on any given policy. If you need to find out more, contact our Corporate Solutions team today. We understand that it can be a bit confusing so we are here to help clarify these details for you.

How much do the beneficiaries get paid if something happens?

This benefit can be tailored to your own organization and this will be something that you can discuss with our team. It is common in Singapore for the sum insured to be an amount equivalent to two or three times the annual salary of the employee. This lump sum benefit affords the employee’s family some mid-term protection against loss of household income.

The benefits can be tiered and aligned to the level role within the company. Our team will work with you on the best combination for your business.
