    Group insurance plans are insurance plans that function as effective tools to help employers, trusts or groups to provide benefits to the employees or members of the group. Along with providing benefit payouts, the plans also offer insurance coverage to the members.

    Canara HSBC OBC provides seven group plans for employer-employee as well as non-employer-employee groups. Each of the plans has different benefits and features. In case of death of a member of a group, the nominee of the deceased person is provided with the sum assured for that particular person. Apart from death benefits, the plans help employers fund employee benefits such as gratuity, pension, leave encashment, etc.
