PPS Insurance Company- Insurance Tailor Made For The Working Professional

Author : Frederick Singletonne


You are an University Graduate. You have spent many years studying to have the title you have today and to earn the income you do. My question to you is this: Are you with an insurance company which caters specifically to your needs? I doubt it, as most insurance companies are more focused on their turn-over. What makes PPS Insurance Company any different?

PPS means, Professional Provident Society. As the name suggests the company is formed and run by its members. The members in this case however happens to be the policy holders. Policy holders owning shares in the insurance company is what makes PPS insurance company different from other insurance companies. Whatever profits is made by the company is shared amongst the holders in the Surplus Rebate Account.

Membership in PPS is given exclusively to people who qualify these two criteria. You need to have:

? Completed a four year degree or diploma
? Have your own practice or be employed as a professional in a corporate environment

PPS was formed many years ago by a group of dentists who saw the need in the insurance industry for a company which deals with the needs of the professional person. Up until today, membership is only for people with a four year degree or diploma. PPS also greatly lesson their risk by dealing with people who are professionals because they can easily afford the premiums.

Special insurance cover is available for students as well. Any fourth year student who is under the age of 30, may apply for membership as well as graduate students under the age of 30 years old. Policy holders under the age of 30 years, pay a reduced premium rate.

So how exactly does PPS work?

With PPS your monthly premiums are determined by your income. Your income is based on your Gross Professional Income, this amount of money determines how many Units Of Benefits you can afford. A level premiums is paid for these Units of Benefit. The other aspect of PPS is the investment model. The wealth accumulation happens in the Surplus Rebate Account where all profits of PPS is shared amongst the members. The more (UOB) the more profit your receive. Additional Units of Benefits can be bought. At the age of 60 years, people can either withdraw the SRA balance, leave it in the Retention plan and withdrawals at regular intervals, or they can invest the money in a chosen fund.
