Enhanced insurance policy for the Police and prison officers starting January 2021

National Police Service (NPS) officers and the Kenya Prisons Services officers to enjoy an
enhanced group life insurance starting January.
This was after the signing of a contract with the National Hospital Insurance Fund (NHIF) for the
provision of the services.
The agreement is a culmination of lengthy deliberations and consultations among the key
stakeholders, who settled on the intra-government contracting model to address the escalating
claims of unpaid life insurance and annuity benefits to service members or their designated
beneficiaries.
On top of the comprehensive group life cover, the National Hospital Insurance Fund (NHIF) will
also offer the officers improved work injury benefits, meaning that besides the cover, all
officers injured and killed in the line of duty will be compensated.
“It is a culmination of lengthy deliberations and consultations among the key stakeholders, who
settled on the intra-government contracting model to address the escalating claims of unpaid
life insurance and annuity benefits to service members or their designated beneficiaries,”
Interior Principal Secretary Karanja Kibicho said.
The PS said this will be part of the government’s systematic efforts to institutionalize a welfare
and protection program for the 131,816 officers who have to contend with life-changing
situations through the course of their duties.
“We’ve had challenges in providing our officers with these services, and that is why we decided
to engage NHIF to protect them just like the other civil servants,” he said.
“The entities were strictly guided by the existing public procurement procedures,” he added.
According to the PS, the ultimate goal is to harmonize the insurance policy benefits of the
officers with those of other civil servants and tailor them to address the vulnerabilities of the
surviving families of those who lose their lives in the line of duty.
NHIF Chief Executive Officer, Dr Peter Gathege, vouched for the progressive optimisation
initiatives at the state-owned insurer, as he ensured timely payment of claims to the officers.
The agreement was signed yesterday at a function attended by the PS State Department for
Correctional Services Zeinab Hussein, the Inspector General Hillary Mutyambai and the
Commissioner for Kenya Prisons Service, Wycliffe Ogallo.
