No one plans on getting cancer, but the reality is that cancer affects 25% of South Africans. At Sanlam, we believe in planning for tomorrow to safeguard your future. Now is the time to plan for cancer.
This is why we’ve introduced the Sanlam Cancer Benefit, designed to give you and your loved ones proper financial cover. Even with medical aid or gap cover, cancer treatment can be very expensive and place heavy financial strain on you and your family. The Sanlam Cancer Benefit helps you cover additional costs like travel to treatment centres, employing a carer for your children and missed work days.

Cancer doesn’t just take a physical toll, but an emotional one too. CANSA’s Tele Counselling service makes it even easier to get the information and support you need by offering confidential, professional, cancer-specific counselling over the phone to cancer patients, caregivers and families of those affected by the disease.

The Sanlam Severe Illness Cancer Benefit is designed to provide you with cover in the event of cancer diagnosis.
There are certain cancers that have a poor diagnosis even in their early stages, and they tend to require aggressive initial treatments and instant changes in lifestyle. Sanlam will pay 100% for these cancers, some of which include oesophageal, liver, lung, pancreatic, stomach and tongue cancer.
The Cancer Benefit is available as individual benefits, or can be selected in combination with other benefits, including other severe illness benefits.
