Group Personal Accident

What is Group Personal Accident Insurance

Group Personal Accident Insurance provides a comprehensive coverage for all expenses associated with accidents up to an agreed limit. In case of the accidental death of the insured, 100% of sum insured is paid to the nominee. This policy provides protection against insured’s burns arising due to an accident. The policy is a 24-hour policy covering the employee during work, after work and in their own leisure time.

Why take up a group personal accident cover?
