How Does Insurance work In Nigeria?
Basically, Insurance companies in Nigeria are available to help you pay for damage to your property or to pay others on your behalf when you injure someone or damage their property.
In a nutshell Insurance is a contract that transfers the risk of financial loss from an individual or business to an insurance company. The company collects small amounts of money from its clients and pools that money together to pay for losses.
The term Insurance is divided into two major categories,
Property and Casualty insurance (P&C) and
Life and Health insurance.
Property and casualty insurance provides protection to businesses and individuals for losses related to their belongings or assets, both physical and financial terms.
Life and health insurance in the other hand protects people from financial loss due to premature death, sickness or disease.
Insurance do use probability and the law of large numbers to determine the cost of insurance premiums and it charges its clients based on various risk factors. The rate must be sufficient for the company to pay claims in the future.
Now it goes this way the more likely an event will occur for a given client, the more insurance companies will need to collect to pay the anticipated claims.
Insurance companies market their products and services to consumers in different ways.
And the price companies charge for insurance coverage is subject to government regulation.
What Is An Insurance Company?
It simply means a company that offers insurance policies to the public, either by selling directly to an individual or through another source such as an employee’s benefit plan. An insurance company is usually made up of multiple insurance agents.
One insurance company can specialize in one type of insurance. An example is life insurance, health insurance, or auto insurance, or if possible offer multiple types of insurance.
