Prudential Life Insurance Ghana a leading life insurer has teamed with Enterprise Life Insurance Ghana to be co-underwriters for SafeNet, an innovative new mobile insurance product. Vodafone, Ghana’s second largest mobile network operator, is using a platform developed by MicroEnsure, a part of the Micro Insurance Company to distribute SafeNet to Vodafone subscribers in Ghana.
The product is designed to offer new customers several key insurance benefits that include cover for hospital cash compensation, cover for accidental injuries or disabilities and general life insurance cover. SafeNet offers a simple and easy process to purchase and acquire flexible insurance. Customers will be able to pay as little as GHS 0.50 in premium to be a SafeNet policyholder.
In line with our commitment to help limit the economic impact of the COVID -19 pandemic on customers, SafeNet will be offered to Vodafone Ghana’s 9 million plus subscribers as free insurance cover for the next six months. To qualify, all customers who have a cumulative spend of at least GHs5 or more of airtime in the previous month will be eligible. Customers who recharge more will get to enjoy increased cover and ultimately higher pay-outs in the event of a claim, at no cost to them.
