Protect and maintain your standard of living when you can no longer earn an income by covering your necessary expenses, including:
Our 3-in-1 cover pays for recognised, occupational and personal disability, including:
For enhanced cover, you have the option of combining your disability cover with the Whole Life Impairment Benefit, which will provide you with disability cover until the age of 70 or retirement - whichever comes first. It also covers you for impairments common in older people (like sight and hearing loss) even into retirement.
You make monthly payments until you become disabled, reach retirement or reach the age of 70 (if you have the Whole Life Impairment Benefit). If you become disabled, you will receive a one-off pay-out.
The cost of the insurance will depend, among other things, on your age and your risk profile when you take out the plan.
When you take out life insurance, various types of underwriting like medical tests and questions about your lifestyle and occupation take time and therefore affect how long it takes to issue your plan. At Sanlam we know that your time is precious and we know that some people really don't like the idea of going for medical tests.
Express cover offers a simplified underwriting process at competitive rates.
