GPRTU recognises the importance of new developments championed by the National Insurance Commission NIC (Insurance regulator in Ghana)
GPRTU commends NIC's Dr. Justice Ofori for changing the face of motor insurance The National Chairman of the Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU) has commended the National Insurance Commission (NIC), for coming to the rescue of their members in the commercial transport sector and bringing sanity to our roads.
NEW INSURANCE LAW
The Insurance Bill, 2020 has received presidential assent, revealed outgoing chairman of the National Insurance Commission, Ray Ankrah.
The Bill had undergone a second reading in Parliament in December 2020.
The new insurance law replaces the Insurance Act of 2006, and ensures the industry is well regulated in accordance with the international framework and acceptable supervisory standards, reported Ghanaweb. Over the years, the National Insurance Commission, the finance committee of Parliament and other stakeholders have made various amendments which were incorporated into the Bill.
One thrust of the new law is to increase insurance penetration in Ghana which currently remains low.
The new law adds three compulsory insurance covers, namely, Public Liability, Group life for employees and Professional Indemnity. Currently, insurance companies underwrite two compulsory insurance covers: Motor Third-Party Liability and Fire (for private commercial properties).
The new law also seeks to mandate insurance companies to meet corporate governance standards and comply with best practices aimed at protecting the premiums or funds paid in by customers.

4) Help in the confirmation of insurance purchase.
The Motor Insurance Database is expected to:

2) Tackle the menace of fake stickers
3) Central Source of Information for all vehicle related issues.
Upon the purchase of a valid Motor Insurance Policy, the insured will receive a text message confirming that the Motor Insurance policy is authentic.

Intriguing and yet worrying trends worth noting
linkedin.com Was 2017 the highest year ever for insured losses from natural disasters? Indeed it was, and you may be surprised to find out why:
Interesting - This Can Happen Only In USA
This actually took place in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA.
A lawyer purchased a box of very rare and expensive cigars, then insured them against, among other things, loss due to fire.
Within a month, having smoked his entire stockpile of these great cigars, the lawyer filed a claim against the insurance company.
In his claim, the lawyer stated the cigars were lost 'in a series of small fires.'
The insurance company refused to pay, citing the obvious reason, that the man had consumed the cigars in the normal fashion.
The lawyer sued and WON! (Stay with me.)
Delivering the ruling, the judge agreed with the insurance company that the claim was frivolous. The judge stated nevertheless, that the lawyer held a policy from the company, in which it had warranted that the cigars were insurable and also guaranteed that it would insure them against fire, without defining what is considered to be unacceptable 'fire' and was obligated to pay the claim.
Rather than endure lengthy and costly appeal process, the insurance company accepted the ruling and paid $15,000 to the lawyer for his loss of the cigars that perished in the 'fires'.
NOW FOR THE BEST PART...
After the lawyer cashed the cheque, the insurance company had him arrested on 24 counts of ARSON!!!
With his own insurance claim and testimony from the previous case being used against him, the lawyer was convicted of intentionally burning his insured property and was sentenced to 24 months in jail and a $24,000 fine.
This true story won First Place in last year's Criminal Lawyers Award contest in USA.
