ACCIDENTS DO HAPPEN
Today's pace of living, the political turmoil, the road and air disasters and our increasingly congested environment are combining to make accidents and Dreaded Diseases a very real threat to our lives.
Accidents happen everywhere - at home, whilst travelling, during business or recreation. So also people get paralyzed unexpectedly and in every strange circumstance.
The families of accident victims and Dreaded Diseases are being denied their breadwinner often at time when debts are high and savings low. Accidents generally leave severe financial problems for the survivors. Because they occur suddenly, few families are prepared to meet the continued cost of household maintenance, children education, hospital bills and other financial commitments.
Accidents also lead to additional financial pressures. Special nursing care or diet may be needed, house conversion may be necessary to cope with the results of an accident. It is indeed a statement of fact that "disability is more expensive than dying".
Protection for you and your family from the consequences of accidental death, serious injury or hospitalization following an accident is available from as little as N500.00 per month for a single person.
In addition to providing for accidental death, permanent disability or hospitalization, this plan also pays benefits should you suffer from paralyses consequent upon identified dreaded diseases.
The lump sum and/or hospital benefit could provide a very useful income, during convalescence (recovery) or meet the everyday cost of living.
