Sanlam Indie: Frequently Asked Questions

We've got your back if you become permanently disabled and are unable to do your current job at the time of your disability.

You’re also covered if you're a full-time student when you become disabled, and are permanently unable to fulfil the demands of the occupation you’re preparing for, taking into account your education, training, and experience.

Whether you can still work or not, you'll be covered for total, permanent and irrecoverable loss of:

  • the vision in two eyes
  • the use of two hands
  • the use of two feet
  • the use of one hand and one foot

If you become disabled and can’t work, you receive a tax-free, one-off payout. The amount will depend on the cover you’ve chosen.

Most people choose to have at least R350,000 of disability cover, but opt for about 6 months of income (after tax but before other deductions) if that’s higher.

The Sanlam Indie calculator will help you work out how much cover you need in just minutes.

Sanlam Indie lets you proactively skip premiums without losing all your cover or reducing your Wealth Bonus. Read more here.

Get any Sanlam Indie policy and we’ll match up to 100% of your monthly premium in an investment - at no extra cost.

Your Wealth Bonus grows with your premiums and with the market. Over the years, those contributions really add up and so does the growth. You can access 10% of it every 5 years, and all of it (including years of growth) at 70. You can learn everything you need to know on the Wealth Bonus page.
