All the protection you need for your bond
Don't end up paying more
than you should
You don't want to pay more for your insurance than you need to. No more paying for a ‘one-size-fits-all approach’ as is the case with most credit life insurance. We consider your risk rating factors like your age, gender and health status which means you only pay for your unique level of risk that is appropriate specifically to you.
Your cover doesn’t
Once your bond is fully paid up, you’ll still have the life cover benefit which means you don’t need to reapply for life cover if you buy another property. Or, you can keep the life cover to ensure your family is financially protected in the event of your death.
No decreasing term insurance
Your life cover doesn’t decrease as your bond decreases. This means that when your home loan is fully paid up, you will still have your life cover in place. So if, for example, you took out life cover for R1 million to cover a R1 million home, you will still have the R1 million life cover that can be paid to your beneficiaries or settle any other debt in the event of your death.
Comprehensive insurance protection that you need, and that the bank requires, from a leading insurer with a proud history of paying all valid claims.
