Level 2: Premier - provides the same coverage as Level 1, plus additional coverage for newborn accommodation, new baby benefit and 31 days cover for newborns including non-hereditary birth defects and congenital abnormalities.

(Subject to wait periods, policy terms, conditions, sub-limits and exclusions - Refer to coverage endorsement for full details - available upon request).


Global Personal Accident Plan

Whilst GlobalSelect is designed to provide protection for individuals and families from the high cost of medical expenses, Global Personal Accident Plan provides financial protection and security for families following the accidental death of an insured loved one. The Global Personal Accident Plan also provides cover in the event of an accident which results in your permanent total disablement, total and permanent loss of speech, hearing or sight, total and permanent loss of use of one or more limbs, or second and third degree burns. Cover is provided on a worldwide basis, irrespective of the area of cover you have chosen for the GlobalSelect plan. Anyone under the age of 70 and approved for a GlobalSelect plan is automatically eligible for a Global Personal Accident Plan at the time of application.

The Global Personal Accident Plan is an optional cover that is purchased in 'blocks of cover' also known as ‘units.’ The maximum number of units you may purchase depends upon your age at the time of application and each subsequent renewal. Applicants aged 31 days through 18 years, and 65 years through 69 years are eligible for one unit of cover. Applicants aged 19 years through 64 years are eligible for up to two units of cover. The second 'supplemental' unit is at a discounted rate to the first 'standard' unit of cover. Child Personal Accident cover is also available at a discounted rate.

GLOBAL PERSONAL ACCIDENT PLAN

If an insured person suffers more than one loss for any one accident, we will pay only one benefit amount which is determined to be the highest benefit payable not to exceed the Permanent Total Disablement Benefit limit purchased. Injury or death must result in loss within 12 months after the date of the accident. The Global Personal Accident Plan does not include cover for accidents arising from manual or hazardous occupations, dangerous sports, pursuits or activities, driving or riding on motorcycles, motorbikes or mopeds. If you are unsure, or your occupation is not purely office-based, or you take part in any dangerous sports, pursuits or activities, please give full details on a separate sheet when submitting your Application Form. We will then advise if cover can be granted. War and terrorist risks can not be covered in certain hazardous countries.

  • Persons Aged 19 Years through to 64 Years can choose to purchase either one or two units of cover.
  • Persons Aged 31 days through 18 Years, or 65 years through to 69 Years can purchase a maximum of one unit of cover.

Global Daily Indemnity - Hospital Income Plan

As we all know, unfortunately your financial obligations and bills will continue even if you are hospitalised. The Global Daily Indemnity Hospital Income Plan is an excellent way to offset these expenses while you are in the hospital and unable to work. Global Daily Indemnity Hospital Income Plan will pay you a fixed sum direct, for each night you are required to stay overnight as an in-patient in a hospital. The hospital stay must be covered under your plan in order to be eligible for this indemnity, and hospital stays related to pregnancy are not eligible. You may choose to purchase either one or two units of the benefit payable per day shown.
