Peace of mind for your
employees and your business

WHY GROUP SCHEME COVER?

Affordable, reliable solutions

Group Schemes cover is generally less expensive than individual cover. VodaSure Group Schemes ensure that all premiums are subject to tax and your benefits are paid out tax free. You may apply to change your cover following major life events like the birth of a child, marriage, death of spouse, divorce or promotion.
