Future Generali Group Gratuity Plan and Policy - The Gratuity Act, 1972, mandates all employers to offer gratuity benefit to their employees. If an employee stays in an organisation for more than a specified period of time(usually 5 years), employers are legally bound to pay gratuity benefit. After an employee successfully completes the specified period of time, he/she is eligible to receive a minimum of 15 days’ salary for every completed year. Please note that unlike the Provident Fund which can be withdrawn anytime, gratuity can be withdrawn only after the employee completes working in a company for the number of years as mentioned while joining the firm. The gratuity benefit becomes payable when an employee retires, resigns from service, in case of unfortunate death of the employee during service, or in case of permanent total disability.
To help employers offer the best gratuity plan to their employees, Future Generali offers a Group Gratuity Plan. As Future Generali is one of the leading insurance providers in India, they have accumulated a large pool of funds which will be invested appropriately to ensure safe returns to the policyholder.
