Who is the Principal member?

In the case of Individual members with and / or without dependants, the principal member is the person with the highest age and therefore responsible for payment of the monthly contributions.

In the case of employer groups, the person who gains access to the medical aid fund by virtue of his/her employment with a participating employer group, will be regarded as the principal or main member. As the participating employer group is regarded as the main contracting party to the Fund, employees may gain access to membership of the Fund subject to the conditions of employment prescribed by a particular employer group.

A married principal member may register as dependants, his/her spouse and his/her children, provided that they are not entitled to benefits from any other medical aid fund.
