Common questions

  • How long does it take to get covered? aaa

    The time frame in getting a quote and going on cover could vary from person to person. This is because each person's circumstances and requirements are different. On average, it could take just a few minutes, to a few days, or weeks to finalise a quote and issue a policy. It all depends on a person's health, and policy requirements.

  • How to choose a Life Insurance company aaa

    There are a lot of options available for life insurance, with many companies offering different incentives and rewards for choosing a policy with them. It is important, as with any large purchase, to do research about the product you are considering. Here are a few things to consider in helping you make a decision:

    What are the needs of my family after my death?

    You must find a policy that fits the needs you anticipate after your death. A good company or insurance broker will help you examine your current budget and lifestyle in order to figure out what policy will serve those concerns after your death.

    Cost/Budget

    What can you afford to pay in a premium every month? This is a crucial question because every company figures out how risky it is to insure the life of a single person. Each company does this calculation in different ways so it's important to compare insurance rates against each other, as they are often quite different. If you are seeking out quotes online, most of the rates do not take into account your medical history or lifestyle, which can alter the final price significantly.

    Add-on benefits

    Many insurance companies offer additional benefits as part of their life insurance packages including bereavement counseling for families or even money to cover living expenses while the life insurance paperwork is processed. These add-ons can often add to the bottom line, but also can provide more quality to your policy.

    What is the company's payout rate?

    Reliable, reputable, quality life insurance companies pay out the benefits in accordance with all the conditions of the policy you purchased 95-100% of the time. It is important to check the rate for the company you choose, because the last thing you want any of those who survive you to deal with is hassle with the insurance company over denying your rightful life insurance claim.

  • Do you charge any fees? aaa

    Our service to you is absolutely free of charge. Neither we, nor do any of the life insurers whom we pass on your application to charge any fees whatsoever.

  • Can I amend my cover at a later stage?aaa

    Yes, certainly. You may amend your policy and cover at any time you like. However, policies do become more expensive the older you are, and some forms of cover may also not be available to you at a later stage should your health profile change. Our insurers can advise on the best way forward with this.

  • How can I be sure that I'm getting the best advice? aaa

    We only work with reputable, well know South African Life Insurance companies who are licenced and regulated. They are experts in providing the best advice as well as ensuring that your interests are protected.
