IASL Launches National Life Insurance Month: Here’s what you need to know

1.In a nutshell…

The Insurance Board of Sri Lanka (IBSL) & Insurance Association of Sri Lanka (IASL) have teamed up together with all the life insurance partners in Sri Lanka to launch the national life insurance month from September 1st-September 30th. This initiative has brought all the life insurance firms as we all strive for one goal- to ensure that all Sri Lankan’s are insured.

2.What’s the main focus of Life Insurance Month in Sri Lanka?

At HNB Assurance, we are well known for our famous ‘spirit of caring’, and have joined forces to help safeguard the future for you and your loved ones, hence the reasoning behind our campaign which urges you, the uninsured to get life and live life. The players in the insurance industry are striving to meet 1,000,000 individuals and spread the message about the importance of insurance for all Sri Lankans.

3. The Logo

The initiative looks to tackle a glaring issue; According to Daily ft less than 13% of Sri Lankan’s are covered by life insurance, so this combined effort will be used by the 15 life insurance companies to bring life insurance into 15 new regions around Sri Lanka.

4. What Should I expect during National Life Insurance Month in September?

  • If you don’t have insurance already, expect our friendly insurance advisors to speak to you. We will be issuing leaflets spreading the ‘Get Life, Live Life’ message.
  • We have also planned a bunch of regional street promotions all around Sri Lanka, so do let us know if you come across any!

HNB Assurance Takaful: In a Nutshell

 1. About Us

Here at HNB Assurance, we pride ourselves on providing innovative solutions to satisfy the various needs of our customers. With that in mind, we decided to promote HNB Assurance Takaful. This is the first company in Sri Lanka to get clearance from the Insurance Board of Sri Lanka (IBSL) to operate as an ‘Islamic window’ model insurance operation.

2. What is Takaful?

Takaful is an alternative to conventional insurance. This is based on the principles of Sharia, where a group of people pool their financial resources to guarantee each other against  loss/damage which they may encounter.

Broadly speaking, HNB Assurance Takaful focuses heavily on Mortgage Reducing Takaful, which is aimed at homeowners or those who are looking to buy land/renovate a house. On the other hand, HNB General Takaful offers both motor and non motor Takaful solutions. The non-motor Takaful solutions cover Fire, Construction, Medical and Marine Takaful.

5. How does Takaful work in practice?

Its as easy as 1-2-3.

  1. Takaful works on the basis of an agreement made by the parties involved in the Takaful insurance scheme.
  2. Each party agrees that he/she is both a participant and an operator.
  3. Each party pays a premium to the scheme which is then invested in an Islamically acceptable way.
