What is group risk insurance?

There are several types of group life cover considered for an employee benefit programme:

  • Life Cover provides a lump sum benefit to an employee in the event of death or terminal illness.
  • Total and Permanent Disablement (TPD) provides a lump sum benefit to an employee if they suffer a sickness or injury that leaves them permanently unable to work.
  • Income Protection provides a regular income benefit if an employee is unable to work (temporarily or permanently) due to disablement caused by illness or injury.
  • Trauma Cover provides a lump sum benefit on diagnosis of one of several serious illnesses or conditions.
  • Specific Injury Support Benefit is for when an employee suffers specified injuries, ranging from broken bones to the loss of an eye, and a lump sum is paid.
  • Kids Cover supports employees by paying a lump sum if their child experiences one of the specified medical conditions or surgical procedures covered by the policy.
