The guidelines will apply when an individual member of the group life insurance scheme/policy will authorise the life insurance company to pay the outstanding loan balance amount to the master policyholder. The company will do so by deducting the amount from the claim proceeds payable when the contingent event covered by the group policy happens.

These guidelines came into effect from 1 Jan 2015.
