Group Pension

These are employer sponsored arrangements, set up under irrevocable trust. Upon being set up the scheme is a separate legal entity. The principle objective of setting up an Occupational Retirement Benefits Scheme is to provide for employees upon their retirement or for their dependents on the unfortunate demise of an employee.

As an employer, you need to be able to attract and retain high caliber staff. One of the ways in which several leading organizations do this is through the establishment of an Occupational Retirement Benefits Scheme.

Your occupational retirement schemes can either be:

  • a defined contribution scheme, or
  • a defined benefit scheme.

With the defined contribution scheme, which has proven to be very popular in the East African region, the amount or rate of contribution is determined at the start of the scheme.

At the time of retirement, the overall benefit is determined by the total amount of contributions and the accrued interest earned on the contributions.

Group Life

Group Life insurance is a benefit offered by an employer or an aggregator of diverse segments of the population for reasons other than insurance (like an association or labor organization) to its workers or members. Such organizations are called the sponsor of the group life scheme. Group life insurance is typically offered as part of employee / membership benefit package.

Ideally the cover will cost each individual worker or member much less than if they had to purchase an individual policy. Those receiving coverage do not have to pay anything “out of pocket” for the Group Life policy benefits if the employer or the group to which they belong provides this as a benefit. However, members of the group or employees may pay directly through salary or annual subscriptions if the employer or the group plays the role of a facilitator only. Usually a minimum number of employees or members are prescribed for the team to qualify as a group for the purpose of taking a group life cover.

What is covered under the Group life policy have?

  • Death Benefits: This benefit is payable on death from illness (natural causes) or accidental. The amount payable, called the sum assured, is either a fixed sum for all members in a particular category as predetermined by the sponsor or is determined as a multiple of the annual salary as set by the sponsor. The benefit is normally paid out as a lump sum to either the sponsor or the designated beneficiaries of the deceased employee / member.
  • Last expense: This is normally taken as an additional benefit to help facilitate the disposal of the mortal remains of the deceased member. The benefit amount ranges between Kshs. 30,000 and Kshs. 200,000/- either as a separate cover or as acceleration (advance payment) of part of the full death benefit described above. Customarily, this benefit is paid within 48hours of receipt of written notification of the death.
  • Credit Life Assurance& Sacco loan protection: Group life plans are also used to provide cover to redeem the outstanding loan balances in the event of premature death or disability of the borrower. This cover can be renewed every year (annually renewable) or provided at the onset of the loan agreement for the entire term of the loan (single premium option). All lenders with a minimum of 10 borrowers including financial institutions and Sacco’s qualify for this cover.
  • Mortgage Protection: Group life schemes offer mortgage protection arranged on a yearly renewable or single premium basis for lenders to specifically protect the families of the deceased mortgagor from the risk of the lender reselling their home in the event of the untimely death or disability of the breadwinner. This cover provides the same benefit as for credit life.
