Why Small Businesses in the Philippines Must Take Advantage of Group Insurance

If you are working in a small business, company or school- whether as owner or employee- you have to take advantage of cheaper Group Insurance. Without one, your employees and finances as a business are at risk. If you belong to an association of some kind for full-time, buy coverage through it.

Save the Company from Uncertain Expenses
If an unexpected accident or death comes to one of your employees, you as an employer will be required to offer aid and assistance to his or her family. Medical treatment costs money, but prolonged cases are too much. Death will also demand expenses. Coverage cushions them.

Without employee group life insurance, employers will be forced to take money from their own pockets. Business owners can avoid this mistake by securing his business with Group Insurance.

Employee Retention

When employees feel that their company is concerned for their welfare, they become more loyal, productive and committed to their employer. As a leader of a company, it is always best to “seek for the good of your subordinates” by providing employee benefits. It is a “plus factor” so your company can be a better workplace.”

Imagine the value and peace that you can give to the families of your workers if they can bring home a Certificate that entitles or insures them throughout the year. It’s an added security for them as well. See sample below:

Our Solution

As a Licensed Financial Advisor, I provide useful solutions to companies and small businesses in the Philippines. I help owners provide this incentive towards a better workplace for their employees.

With Sun Life Financial’s 5 Plus, you can benefit in three ways as a company:

  • Life Insurance – Sun Life shall pay the amount of insurance to the beneficiaries of your employees for loss of life by any means.
  • Accidental Death, Dismemberment & Disability (AD&D)- Sun Life shall pay an additional amount of insurance for loss of life or a percentage thereof for dismemberment or disability due to accidents.
  • Total & Permanent Disability Income (TPDI)- If the employee becomes totally and permanently disabled for his lifetime as a result of accidental injuries or illness, Sun Life shall provide a monthly income for a maximum period of 60 months.

In addition, we wish to highlight the following distinct features of our plan, which makes us different from other insurance companies.

• Quotation is inclusive of the cost of Documentary Stamp Tax.

• Sun Life’s Accidental Death Dismemberment & Disability (ADD&D) benefit rider covers not only death or dismemberment but also disabilities due to accident including loss of speech and hearing. Other insurers cover only dismemberment. Also, the maximum no. of days that an insured member is allowed to claim from this rider is within 365 days after the incident. Other insurers allow only up to a max. of 180 days only.

• Sun Life’s Total and Permanent Disability Income (TPDI) Benefit provides a rate of P20.65/1000 of insurance cover in computing amount of monthly income, up to 60 months. The computed monthly income multiplied to 60 months shall total to 124% of the TPDI amount of cover (and not just 100%). Other insurers provide a rate of P18.32/1000 only.
