Group Chronic Illness

This product was designed to enhance the benefits of an Employee who would have retired on ill-health grounds. Under a Defined Contribution Scheme, the reduced years of service due to ill-health, negatively impacts on the retirement package. Many Employees who would ordinarily qualify for ill-health early retirement are therefore not keen to retire because of this element. The product allows for a win-win situation – Employee gets an enhanced retirement package and Employer can hire a more productive Employee.

The employer pays an additional contribution expressed as a percentage of salary bill, for the provision of this benefit.

The fund releases a lump sum which is a multiple of member’s salary as at date of retirement. This additional lump sum when matched with the retirement capital accumulated under the main pension fund ensures that a more meaningful Pension is paid to the Retiree.
