Will my loan repayments be affected by interest rate fluctuations?

No. The interest rate on your loan will be fixed at our current interest rate for your full loan term, so your repayments will never increase, even if the interest rate goes up.

Can I choose how I make my repayments?

For your convenience, your repayments will be deducted by debit order from the bank account into which your salary is paid every month.

How can I protect my family?

Every Sanlam Loan includes our Personal Protection Plan, which settles your outstanding loan balance in the event of your death, permanent disability or certain dread diseases. It also provides limited cover in the event of temporary disability and should you be retrenched, a once-off payment equal to six instalments will be paid out to you. Of course, you're free to substitute the plan with a policy of your choice, providing the cover offered is equivalent.

Qualifying Sanlam Reality members could enjoy up to 20% of their loan repayments back once they’ve made 12 consecutive repayments. For more information on how to join, visit the Sanlam Reality website.
