Why Different Life?

Maximising impact, not profit

A life insurance policy purchased through Different Life means you’re taking care of your loved ones while also changing the world. But let’s unpack that. Here’s why buying life insurance from us makes sense:

  1. You’re buying from a trusted name

    The Different Life  policy is underwritten by Old Mutual Alternative Risk Transfer Limited, a registered long-term insurer and member of the Old Mutual Group. This means you’re partnering with a reliable, stable insurance brand that’s been around the block, and who you can rely on.

  2. You become an instant philanthropist

    We’re all about maximising impact, not profit. When you choose to become a Different Life philanthropist, you will qualify for cover under a life insurance policy that will only charge you 11 months’ premiums for 12 months’ cover. In return you agree to make an annual donation equivalent to 1 month’s premium. Your donations will go to worthy causes of your choice.  As long as you make annual donations you will continue to qualify for this unique life policy. While you look after your family’s future, you’ll make a difference in someone else’s too.

  3. It’s simple

    We don’t do fancy or frilly – we’re all about no-nonsense quality. With this in mind, our policies are simple to understand and easy to use.

  4. We love technology

    To us, technology makes the life insurance process less complicated, and it keeps you in the loop too. That’s why you can get a quote, buy a policy and manage everything online with just a few clicks.

  5. We’re there for you

    You’re an individual. Shouldn’t your life insurance reflect that too? We tailor every single policy to suit your specific needs, priorities and lifestyle.

Happiness doesn't result from what we get, but from what we give
