General Accident started operations in Jamaica in the 1920’s as agents for the world wide insurance company of General Accident Fire & Life Assurance Corporation, GAFLAC, located in Perth Scotland, a 1885 entity with significant presence in 45 countries.

In 1981, General Accident Jamaica was incorporated as the local insurer with shareholders Musson Jamaica, as the major shareholder and General Accident, Perth as the minor shareholder but who like any good mother GAFLAC provided the guidance and support through a management contract which provided access to many facilities which would not normally be available to a small company.

Musson Jamaica Ltd. whose core business has been involved in manufacturing and merchandising within Jamaica for the past fifty-two years, took over full ownership of General Accident in 1997.
