Ghana Post pay first claim to a victim

Ghana Post, has in collaboration with Star microinsurance company, paid their first claim to a client of their Abusua Nkyemfa policy.

The client, Mr. Kwabena Akyea who lives at Mampong in the Ashanti region, was recently involved in an accident leading to his nine-days hospitalization.

Since the cost involved in cases such as this usually drains the little savings of low income earners, the company introduced the Starmicro Abusua Nkyemfa policy to help its clients access the needed help in exchange for very little premium contributions.

The product also allows cover for the principal assured and seven other family members against perils such as death and hospitalization.

Prior to Mr. Francis Kwabena Akyea’s accident, he signed onto the policy at the Mampong Post Office. He therefore contacted the company to inquire if his situation made him qualify for a claim.

"It was realised that not only did Mr Akyea qualify for a claim, but he was actually a customer in good standing, and was given some amount of money to help cater for the cost incurred," a statement issued by the insurance company said.

An unspecified amount of money was presented to him by Ms Awura Adwoa Apau, Project Officer of Starmicroinsurance and Mrs. Salome Takyi Arjarquah (Marketing of Officer Ghana Post) at his residence in Mampong.

“These microinsurance policies are designed specifically to cater for the needs of their target market. It will be very beneficial if these people enrol onto these policies to protect themselves against the unknown future,” stated Ms. Awura Adwoa Apau.
