SANASA Life Insurance has been a people’s brand in the field of insurance in Sri Lanka for nearly 30 years. It was established for the purpose of giving relief to the people of rural areas who did not enjoy the benefits of insurance when it really needed on death or disablement. In October, 1991 All Lanka Mutual Assurance Organization (ALMAO) was established and the monthly premium was a small sum of Rs. 5 to Rs. 20 and thereby the foundation for an invaluable insurance company was laid. In 2003, SANASA Life obtained the license to operate as a Life Insurance company. Today, SANASA is one of the leading insurance service providers in Sri Lanka providing thousands of job opportunities to the younger generation.
