Group Life Assurance Schemes.
The Zimnat Life Group Life Assurance Plan is an insurance scheme an employer can take out to cover the lives of employees. The scheme ensures that a lump sum payment is made to the beneficiaries of an employee who passes on. It is worth to note that the benefit is only payable if the employee passes on whilst in the service of the employer. The employer is responsible for paying the premiums for this insurance cover.
The lump sum benefit due to the surviving dependants is paid as a multiple of the employee’s annual salary. In addition to the above stated benefits the employer has the option of adding more benefits to their employees’ covers such as cover for total and permanent disability. Furthermore, employers can add the group funeral insurance which can guarantee their employees get a decent funeral in the event of their untimely passing.
A pension fund can be defined as a financial vehicle to which the employer and employees contribute for the ultimate financial benefit of the employee and his family at retirement, retrenchment, death, disablement or termination of employment.
