Since the confirmation of COVID-19 cases in the Caribbean and the subsequent institution of curfews and lockdowns across the region, Sagicor has instituted several policies aimed at the continuation of business, providing financial relief for those whose incomes have been negatively impacted, donating resources to support the most vulnerable and at risk, along with assisting families to cope with the imposed restrictions around movement and socialization.
Most notably the company has assisted clients by facilitating the early payment of pension to pensioners to ensure their ability to meet their current financial needs, in addition to offering the option of a deferral of payments on both residential and commercial mortgages. Sagicor also donated US$1Million to support COVID-19 containment and treatment efforts across the region, while several thousands of dollars having been donated to provide care packages to the elderly, homeless and disadvantaged members of the society.
