How To Stop SIC Life Insurance Policy Deduction Of GHS10

In 2019, Many teacher unions in Ghana called on GES to stop the mandatory SIC policy deduction and made it an optional after it's introduction.

Many teachers are eager to stop the SIC Life Insurance Policy Deduction on their payslips. The reason being that they were not informed about the policy before it was initiated in 2019. After agitations by some GES staff, the company made it optional.

Despite being made optional, some individuals who surrendered the policy did not receive their refund whereas others could not opt-out at all. Currently, some teachers who applied to surrender the policy are still being deducted without their consent. Most GES staff, teachers especially have found ways and means to surrender the policy. In this article, you are provided with the simplest way to terminate or opt-out and call for a refund of monies deducted as a result of an unintended subscription to the policy.

According to SIC, some of the benefits teachers will enjoy are subsidized monthly premium, of GHS 10.00, Death cover (Natural and accidental causes) up to an amount of GHS 18,000, permanent disability covers up to GHS 18,000, 10% cashback every three years when no claim has been made within the period, critical illness: GHS 9,000 upon diagnosis (cancer, kidney/renal failure, heart attack, deafness, loss of sight, stroke, paralysis, loss of speech.)
