What group life insurance consists of


A group life assurance scheme enables employers to provide a tax-free lump sum benefit and/or a dependent’s pension to an employee’s family and children if they should die in service.

Having a group life assurance scheme in place goes a long way towards demonstrating an employer’s genuine care for staff welfare. As well as encouraging loyalty and reassuring staff that they are valued.
