New Solutions for Crew Insurance

SocialSecurity coloured10 3
Superyacht crew insurance has barely changed in a decade, despite critical shifts in social policy. “Obamacare” in the United States and critical changes to French Social Security regulations have forced crew insurance brokers to work hard to find updated solutions that work.
Based in Florida, the international insurance brokers SGRM, in association with WYCC Luxembourg, have partnered to develop industry leading global health insurance with US coverage. They are also able to offer the only private plan that works directly with French social security’s new requirements.

The French Package

France moved this year to apply the Maritime Labour Convention’s requirements for social protection for seafarers. They were the first country to do so, and others will follow.
It’s caused a headache for owners, yacht managers and crew. Crew now need not just medical insurance, repatriation, loss of life and 16-weeks disability income, but much wider social security coverage including maternity cover and old-age pensions. It’s the foundation of the MLC’s promotion of seafarers’ rights. But it has meant that every business employing crew within France now needs to prove their crew are covered.
In a prompt and proactive move, SGRM in association with WYCC have launched the market’s first private, French social-security approved contribution plan called The French Package. The plan includes medical care, sickness, injury and disability benefits, life insurance, and family, maternity and old-age benefits. The French law does not require the plan to propose unemployment benefits.
