Group Multiple Benefits Insurance Scheme

Great Eastern Life provides a wide range of Employee Benefit solutions to help companies attract, retain and keep their employees healthy.

According to recent Malaysian statistics, an average of two in every three Malaysians will contract heart disease, stroke or cancer. Fortunately, innovations in technology and recent medical studies have paved the way for the majority of these illnesses to be cured, provided we have sufficient funds.

So, how do we prepare for the high cost of medical treatment? For just a few ringgit a day Great Eastern’s GMBIS will take care of your medical bills. GMBIS is an affordable insurance plan with comprehensive protection against loss of life, total permanent disability, accident and the 36 critical illnesses. Hospital benefit can also be included in this plan. In addition, the plan offers investment benefits payable either upon permanent disability, loss of life, maturity or diagnosis of any of the 36 critical illnesses. The total investment value depends on the performance of the unit funds and the total number of years of contribution.
