GROUP PERSONAL ACCIDENT/ EMPLOYER LIABIILITY POLICY

The Employees’ Compensation Act 2012 requires that employers pay 1% of their annual turnover to Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund (NSITF) as annual levy.

In addition, a Group Personal Accident policy may be combined with the Employer’s Liability policy. This serves as a welcome welfare package to employees as they are covered for 24hours.

DIRECTORS AND OFFICERS LIABILITY INSURANCE

In an increasingly litigious world, your company’s officers and board of directors are personally at risk to incur financially crippling lawsuits, making it difficult to attract top-tier talent.
