Great Eastern Life Assurance (Malaysia) Bhd will pay RM2 million to 14 next-of-kin of those on board the missing Flight MH370, said Director and Chief Executive Officer, Datuk Koh Yaw Hui.

He said the company will set aside procedures and proceed with the claims payment.

"We understand their situation, and will therefore, just make the payments," he told the media on the sidelines of the official opening of the All-New Great Eastern Life Centre For Excellence, here today.

Koh said the process of making the payments will take just a day.

He also said all the clients insured with Great Eastern Life Assurance were Malaysians.
