    Group plans provide an insurance cover for a group of people with a single insurance policy.

    Group insurance plans are generally purchased by organizations to cover to their employees. The people covered under the single insurance plan are known as a ‘Group’.

    Groups can be of two types:

    • Employer

    The employer purchases an insurance plan that covers the employees of the organization.

    These groups include people of professional organizations.

    Group plans cater to the need of both protection and savings. You can look for plans that offer financial security to your employees, you can also check out plans that take care of their retirement needs.

    • Non-employer 

    These are informal groups. They can be groups which include members of the same social organization, same credit card holders, the ones who have taken a loan from a particular bank, etc. In such a case, the group administrator purchases an insurance plan that covers the members of such informal groups.

    Financial institutions like banks would want protection against non-payment of loans or credit card debts. In such cases, they opt for group plans.
