The MINDEF and MHA Group Insurance Scheme was launched on 1 Jul 2016 to provide insurance coverage for all uniformed officers and NSFs. Termed as core insurance scheme and paid for by the government, all uniformed officers and NSFs are covered for $150,000 worth of Group Term Life insurance and $150,000 worth of Group Personal Accident insurance. On 1 Aug 2017, the core insurance scheme was also extended to selected groups of civilian officers. A voluntary scheme is also offered for those who want a higher coverage and/or wish to purchase group term insurance for their dependents. Officers who are interested in purchasing voluntary insurance can go to https://www.aviva.com.sg/en/mindef-and-mha/mha-group-insurance/ for more information.
