Employee Benefits - Group Insurance
A group insurance plan insures a group of people under a single insurance contract and every individual member of the group enjoys a comparatively lower premium rate than insuring one person individually.
Premium will be determined based on the age, occupation and amount of insurance of all employees in a group. Proposal with the detail of benefit and premium will be submitted after receiving details of your employees from you.
- Employees and their family would feel financially secure.
- It helps increasing loyalty of employees towards their organisation resulting in higher productivity of employees.
- It safeguards the employer from paying huge amount in the event of adverse eventuality, like death, disability, injury and illness of employees.
- Premium is lower in Group Insurance.
- It enables the organisations to plan and budget for the future accurately.
This plan is available to a group of 10 or more (for SMEs 5 or more) full time regular and salaried employees actively at work in the employer’s office in Nepal for at least 30 hours per week, under 65 years of age, in service on the policy effective date. This refers to an employee being actively at work on a full-time basis with the employer, and who is not disabled, granted a leave of absence, temporarily laid-off, or placed on part-time employment. The employer shall provide full details of employees to MetLife. Coverage shall commence on the employees subject to MetLife’s written confirmation.
In order to be eligible for Group Insurance coverage, the group must be an employer- employee group and have been formed as a formal group for a reason other than to obtain insurance.
Yes. If the insured group members are not required to contribute any part of the premium payment for the coverage whereas employer pays full premium, the group insurance plan is a non-contributory plan. If the group members must contribute some or all of the premium payment in order to be covered under the group insurance policy, then the plan is a contributory plan. For Contributory Plans, participation must be at a minimum 75% of total eligible members of the Group.
His/her coverage is terminated from the day he/she leaves the organisation. The unutilised premium is refunded or adjusted on a pro-rata basis against the premium for newly enrolled employees or the next renewal premium as per the preference of the Employer.
His/her coverage starts from his/her date of enrollment accepted by MetLife. We will charge only the pro-rated premium for the remaining period up to the renewal date or the Policy anniversary. If any unutilised premium is available, this amount can be credited towards the premium for new employees.
Yes. This plan provides 24 hours a day and 365 days a year worldwide protection.
Coverage amount of each member can be determined in any of the following three (3) ways:
● Flat Amount Plan: The amount of insurance is identical for all eligible employees.
● Multiple of Earning Plan: The amount of insurance is determined by a multiple of the employees’ earning – be it 12 / 24 / 36 / 48 times of monthly gross or basic salary.
Class Plan: Amount of insurance varies according to the occupation or designation or salary level classification.
Yes. We can customise the coverage package for your organisation’s needs. However, Life and Accidental Death coverage are mandatory in order to qualify for other coverage.
