NEW ZEALAND, Feb. 13, 2017 -- Chubb announced today substantial updates to its Group Personal Accident (GPA) coverage. Employers in all types of industries can now offer extended cover to employees protecting them against a loss by death or injury. 

The refreshed GPA product now  features a Visitors Benefit, Return to Work Assistance, cover for Tuition or Advice expenses and Unexpired Memberships, Funeral Expenses and a Superannuation Scheme Contribution Benefit. The policy also offers an optional extension to cover Genitourinary Losses. 

The removal of an age exclusion means a level of cover is now offered to people of all ages. All policy holders will benefit from the new features which provide a wide level of coverage to protect organisations and their employees in the event of an accident.  

Andrew Brooks, Chubb Country President for New Zealand, said: "This product  refresh is a response to both broker and client feedback and the ever-increasing complexity of claims in the New Zealand market." 

With a refreshed GPA policy that responds to evolving market requirements, Chubb has reaffirmed its position as the leading provider of corporate Accident & Health products in New Zealand.
