MUSIGA, SIC-Life renew insurance deal

The Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) and SIC-Life Insurance have renewed an insurance deal between the two outfits with an assurance of additional benefits to musicians who sign on to the new policy.

According to Mr David J. Ankrah, Head of Corporate and Group Business of SIC-Life, the renewed policy now covers spouses and children of MUSIGA members.

To him, the renewal of the policy with SIC-Life, which was first signed in May 2021, was an indication of the good work SIC-Life did with the initial one.

“I am happy MUSIGA has affirmed that SIC-Life delivers on its promise of paying due benefits to beneficiaries.

“If we hadn’t discharged our duties well and kept our side of the bargain by paying the benefits promptly, MUSIGA wouldn’t have renewed the policy,” Mr Ankrah said on February 20 at the signing of the new policy at the MUSIGA headquarters in Accra.

Musicians who sign up for the new will receive a death benefit of GHC 5,000.00; permanent disability benefit of GHC 5,000.00; spousal benefit of GHC 2,000.00 and critical illness benefit of GHC 2,500.00. The annual premium for the insurance is GHC 100.00.

The Acting President of MUSIGA, Mr Bessa Simons, expressed happiness at the signing of the policy with SIC-Life and pointed out that it was a great move for the union.

“Some of our members who benefitted from this insurance package include the late Nana Kwame Ampadu,” Mr Simons stated.
