Insurance Companies in Nigeria – Ever heard the saying: “No one knows tomorrow”? That statement is the reason why we have insurance companies in the world today.
There are many insurance companies in Nigeria; each one of them with their different packages and policies which they use to attract customers to buy their policies.
The fact remains – Nigerians do not care about insurance; they believe that God will save them from all unforeseen circumstances; while I don’t dispute this, it is unarguable that insurance companies come in very handy when or if something bad were ever to happen, they also help you keep money for your children’s education, assure your life, insure your house, business among numerous other benefits.
Buying an insurance policy for one reason or the other is never a bad idea; however, buying it from the wrong insurance company is a terrible idea. There are many dogs looking for food in the name of insurance, so you better be careful so you don’t fall victim.
In this article, I will talk about some of the best insurance companies in the country who are properly registered and who have good customer feedback.
What are the Things to Consider Before Choosing an Insurance Company?
1. Is the Company a Registered One?
Yes, any company that is not registered in Nigeria is bound to be closed down. So my advice to you is that before you choose an insurance company, please know if its a registered one.
2. Is the Company Legally Accredited?
This is also another factor that needs to be considered before choosing an insurance company which is that the company must be certified by the Nigerian government and should be legally accredited.
Companies put in check by the abiding government will most likely abide by the rules and regulations binding insurance companies.
The ones we have listed here are certified by the government.
3. What is the Company’s Brand
Seek for reviews on the internet and word of mouth before settling to work with an insurance company.
The company’s track record will speak for itself and its capacity of bearing your unforeseen risks and paying the required amount as at when due.
3. What is the Company Coverage
This factor is very important in considering the best insurance company to put your money.
Depending on your needs, you should seek the coverage the company covers, its promptness and the special features that stand them out.
If an insurance company can not account for certain risks that are important, it is a red flag.
4. Is the Company Financially Stable and What is their Price Factor
Finding out if an insurance company has enough grounds to stabilize despite economic pitfalls is very important.
From the stock ratings and ample business resources, you can dig deep to get the detailed answers you are looking for.
Also, the price factor should be put into consideration while picking a top insurance company in Nigeria.
Despite the enticing ads, you should understand that the prices given would determine the coverage you end up getting.
