GDPR made simple for Group Life Assurance Schemes

GDPR affects Group Life Schemes
Home Insight News

The deadline may have passed, but it’s not too late to ensure your Group Life Assurance Scheme is compliant with the new laws around data protection.

This means Trustees of a standalone Group Life Assurance Scheme (GLA) are classified as ‘Data Controllers’ due to their ownership and control of personal employee data. Trustees are therefore legally bound by the GDPR rulings. Premier can ensure your scheme complies with the new regulation. Download the technical update using the form below to ensure you understand the obligations for trustees of GLA schemes.
