As far as insurance goes, life cover is pretty straightforward (subject to the terms and conditions of the policy): if you die, the cover amount (or sum assured) is paid out to whoever you choose (your beneficiaries). With life cover in place, you’ll know that there will be funds available to cover your financial commitments and to care for your family when you’re gone. That’s the Different Life peace of mind.
Depending on your income, you can qualify for Life Cover of between R100 000 and R10 million.
Life Cover only expires at death.
At an additional cost, you can customise your Life Cover to include our following add-ons: accelerated funeral, terminal illness benefit, double accident, and guaranteed insurability benefit.
In the event of your death, the funeral cover amount will be paid to your nominated beneficiaries within 48 hours of all required information for a valid claim being received.
The remaining portion of the Life Cover amount will be paid after a full claims investigation has been completed.
If you are diagnosed with a terminal medical condition, with a life expectancy of less than 12 months – confirmed by the appointed medical officer using industry best practice to assess the diagnosis– the Life Cover amount will be advanced in full following the standard claims procedure.
In the event that a claim arises from an accident, the additional cover amount will be paid to you or your beneficiaries.
This benefit allows you to increase your benefit’s cover at certain times and events, with limited or no underwriting, by an additional 25% each time, never exceeding the cover amount of your total Guaranteed Insurability Cover (provided that you have not claimed to date).
