Will all my employees be covered?

You can choose to cover all your employees or a group of employees.
Can employees decide to opt-in or opt-out?

Employees will not be able to opt-in or opt-out.
What is the difference between approved and unapproved benefits?

You can provide your employees with Group Insurance Benefits by purchasing group insurance through your retirement fund (approved insurance benefit) or outside your retirement fund (unapproved insurance benefit). For unapproved benefits, the insurance premium is taxed as a fringe benefit in the hands of the employee. Unapproved benefits are tax free when the employee receives the benefit.

Employees cannot keep their Group Insurance Benefits when they leave your employment, but can convert them to an individual policy with Momentum Myriad.
What are the tax benefits if I offer my employees Group Insurance Benefits?

Employers can only claim a tax deduction on the premiums in terms of section 11(ww)(i) of the Income Tax Act if they are the policyholder and only if the premiums are taxed as a fringe benefit in the hands of the employees.
