A life insurance company, Hollard Life Assurance, a subsidiary of Hollard Ghana, has announced a free COVID-19 insurance cover for all its existing and new customers on individual and group policies. 

The move is to help ease the burden of the pandemic on Ghanaians.

At no additional cost, the complimentary COVID-19 cover will provide policy holders and their beneficiaries with financial support in the event of hospitalisation or death as a result of the novel coronavirus disease.

The Group CEO of Hollard Ghana, Patience Akyianu, in a press release issued by the company on May 4, stated that her office was committed to support its clients amid the outbreak of the virus.

"With COVID-19 and the uncertainty it presents, our customers want support that goes beyond funeral or personal accident cover.

"We are committed to ensuring a secure future for them, hence this comprehensive benefit to safeguard their wellbeing and add value to the existing products we offer."

Uniquely designed product

On his part, the Managing Director of Hollard Life Assurance, Nashiru Iddrisu, said Hollard Life’s products were uniquely designed to cater for individual, family and group needs even during the pandemic.

“We have got our existing and new customers covered. Adepa Life Insurance policy is a simple family-oriented plan, that covers the policy holder and up to seven members of their family.

"Our Purple Employee Plan provides a more comprehensive, 24-hour protection, adequate and substantial cover at competitive premiums for employees throughout their employment. It is our purpose to treat everyone with care and dignity so adding on this automatic benefit makes sense.

“New customers are also entitled to full benefits under their policies for themselves and their insured dependents,” he added.
