For employer-employee groups:
In case of employer-employee groups, the group insurance is purchased by the employer for the benefit of the employee. It is seen as a good practice which enhances employee satisfaction. In case the premium is paid by the employer, it could be treated as a business expense against which the employer can claim tax deductions. Some of the group insurance schemes also help the employer in meeting the statutory obligations.
For the employees, purchasing group insurance helps them in availing tax benefits on the premium paid for the group insurance. Further the funds in which they invest, are managed by experts which ensures that the members benefit by getting potentially good returns.
For non employer-employee groups:
Besides allowing the members of non-employee-employer groups to benefit by availing life cover, some group insurance policies also provide covers against outstanding loans to the group members.
The amount paid as premiums under group insurance policy is allowed as a deduction under Section 80C of the Income Tax Act, 1961. Further, any amount received under the group life insurance policy is eligible for exemption from income tax under Section 10(10D) of the Income Tax Act.
Please note the tax benefits under group insurance policy are subject to certain other conditions. You are suggested to check with your tax consultant to ensure the fulfilment of other conditions before making any claim.
The groups are classified in two types: employer-employee and non-employer-employee group. Most of the groups are employer-employee types. In the case of non-employer-employee group, the members should have “assembled together with a commonality of purpose or engaging in a common economic activity.” For instance, employee welfare associations or a society is an example of non-employee-employer group. A group should not be formed with intention of availing benefits of group insurance policy.
No, an individual cannot opt for a group insurance. You have to be part of a group to avail the benefits of group insurance policy.
