The Nigerian Bar Association has paid death benefits under the NBA Life Assurance Scheme to beneficiaries of at least nine deceased members of the Association in 2019.
The above was revealed by the President of the NBA, Mr. Paul Usoro SAN today at the 4th quarter NEC meeting of the NBA Executives.
In his opening speech, the President noted that the once defunct insurance scheme has been reactivated with Leadway Assurance.
In his words “At the pre-AGC NEC meeting, we committed to reactivate the NBA’s Life
Assurance Scheme before the end of September 2019. This, we achieved, in partnership with our insurance partners, Leadway Assurance Company Limited (“Leadway”).”
“Perhaps, more gladdening is the fact that we have, as at date, paid death benefits to 9 (nine) beneficiaries of our deceased colleagues who passed on in 2019.”
He commended Leadway Assurance for their support and prompt response.
“Leadway, I must mention, has been most responsive and prompt in attending to our demands. They have also been very supportive, and I am glad that we have them as our partners” he noted
