Financial crime (Fraud & Money Laundering)

To verify your identity and prevent financial crime we may use and share your information with companies who work for us and with appropriate organisations.

We may also search, send your details to, and use information from third party verification service providers and financial crime and credit reference agencies (third parties). This involves checking your details against databases these third parties use. EasyPay and these third parties may keep a record of the search, the results of the search, any suspicions of financial crime and the details may be used to assist other companies for verification and identification purposes. The search is not a credit check and your credit rating will be unaffected. These activities help to:

- prevent financial crime (e.g. fraud, money laundering)

- verify the identity of policyholders/ex-policyholders

- trace and validate beneficiaries or recover debt

- make decisions about your policy

Appropriate organisations may include (but are not limited to) the Uganda Police Force, Uganda Revenue Authority, National Social Security Fund, Uganda Communication Commission. The third party verification providers, financial crime and credit reference agencies may include (but are not limited to) Uganda Communication Commission (UCC), telecommunication companies.
