People’s Pension Trust collaborates with 3 bodies to provide pensions & insurance to drivers

Westom Insurance Brokers – in collaboration with People’s Pension Trust (PPT), Prudential Life Insurance and Premier Health Insurance – has launched a pension and insurance package for members of the Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU).

Known as the ‘Anidaso Plan’, the package offers a three-in-one Pension/Life insurance/Health Insurance plan to members. It also covers the principal’s immediate dependents; that is, spouse and children.

The ‘Anidaso Plan’ is a comprehensive pension and insurance package that has been specially designed to offer members of the Ghana Private Road Transport Union of Trade Union Congress (GPRTU of TUC) unhindered access to Pension/insurance products like life insurance, health insurance and a pension scheme.

The ‘Anidaso Plan’s’ success can be traced to an extensive conversation between leaders of the Transport Union and the four companies, which ended up in the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between all the  parties.

Managing Director of Westom Insurance Brokers, Adwoa Pinaman Acquah, said the union’s steps taken to have such a plan is in the right decision, as it will go a long way to support them since the nature of their work exposes them to a lot of risk.“Driving and the risk of accidents and injuries are something that you cannot really separate, so the leadership thought it wise that a package of this nature be put together for them,” she said.

Ms. Acquah reiterated the need for individuals within the informal sector to make it a point to secure their future against any risk likely to occur without any sign. “Day in day out, we realise that life works on you as you move; so it is about time people within the informal sector made a deliberate effort to put something aside for their life, for their health and their future,” she advised.

Chief Operating Officer (COO) of People’s Pension Trust, Mr. Kofi Eba-Miezah Polley, underscored the ‘Anidaso plan’s’ importance as a novelty that had come at an opportune time to safeguard the future wellbeing of drivers.

“We are proud to be associated with this Pension/insurance package, because as a company that offers innovative, flexible and digitally-driven pension products to ensure retirement income securities for Ghanaians our target has always been the informal sector who are the vulnerable; as such, any support to such a category of workers is welcome.”

He seized the opportunity to advise the informal sector, especially the drivers, to secure their future by contacting the People’s Pension Trust for a retirement package and benefit from a lump-sum to cater for their future wellbeing.

The National Chairman for GPRTU, Nana Nimako Bresiamah, commended the companies involved in putting such packages together – expressing joy that union members can also boast a better life after retirement, which has been a strong desire of the leaders of the union.

Mr. Bresiamah advised drivers within the union to adopt the habit of saving for their future, and do away with irresponsible living, such as mismanagement of income that won’t help secure their future – urging them to be part of the special ‘Anidaso Plan’.
