ALLIANCE General Insurance Company has re-launched one of its products, Alliance Legal, with additional benefits for the first time since its inception in 2019.
The colourful re-launch ceremony was done at Lancers Inn Hotel, Maseru, this week.
The Alliance Legal cover dubbed ‘Thebe Ea Basotho’ is a family-oriented insurance policy meant to afford clients legal representation should they ever require it.
Speaking at the event, the insurance company’s Head of Retail, Lekhooa Montši, said that Alliance had found it befitting to have the cover after discovering that it was not easy for people to budget for unexpected and unforeseen legal battles.
He said they did not have inhouse lawyers but that they outsourced the work to outside legal practitioners. They then covered the expenses for their insured clients.
“Just like death, legal disputes can come any time and it is not easy for people to budget for such times, so with Alliance Legal, one is assured that he will be covered for such difficult times,” Montši said.
“We provide our clients with services that include litigation on labour, civil, and criminal matters, as well as divorces and other disputes.
“We also help them in preparing their wills, advice on drawing up deeds for clients’ properties, and draw up sale agreements without loopholes.”
Furthermore, Mr Montši said that Alliance had also revamped and improved the product by including some new benefits in it.
Amongst the new benefits in the cover, Mr Montši said, was free marriage counselling.
Additionally, spouses of the policy holders were now covered on bail benefits which was not the case before, as only the main member was covered for bail.
“We have also discovered that the divorce rate is increasing in the country. In an effort to curb that, we have introduced free marriage counselling for our members under the Alliance Legal scheme,” Mr Montsí said.
“Again, before we were only covering the main member for bail but this time around, even their spouses are insured for bail. The bail amount has also been increased from M500.00 to M5000.00.”
The other improvement is that through the new policy, Alliance has aslo increased the accidental death benefits for policy holders from M2 500 to M10 000.
