Credit life insurance South Africa

Credit life insurance is a policy that is implemented into a financial agreement when an individual applies for credit, in order for the credit provider to be certain that they will be repaid in the event of a client’s disability, unemployment or death. Credit life insurance in South Africa is important for providing peace of mind, should anything happen to an individual that would lead them to be unable to cover monthly expenses and pay back any outstanding debt.

Africa Unity Life Services

African Unity Life Credit Insurance will make provision for the policyholder when they are no longer able to earn an income and cover costs by paying any outstanding debt directly to the financial institution involved.

This insurance will take care of financial matters of the policyholder and in the event of natural or accidental death, the policyholder's family will be covered too. The credit life insurance policy will cover the policyholder in the event of the principal member’s death, permanent disability, or retrenchment and will cover costs of:

  • Personal loans
  • Credit card purchases
  • Overdraft accounts

Along with this, proof of the payment for these outstanding amounts will be sent directly to the lender, otherwise known as the bank or financial institution by African Unity Life.

Important to note is that pensioners or self-employed individuals do not qualify for credit life insurance, as they would not be able to claim against cover that offers retrenchment or disability cover benefits.

One should be aware of the difference between credit life insurance and life insurance when selecting the correct cover to suit individual needs.

A life insurance policy will help to ease the financial burden of a family after the death of an individual who is known to be the breadwinner. This is done by paying out a lump-sum payout to employees and their loved ones in the unforeseen event of death or disability. Life insurance, put simply, is the cover for one to provide for their family when they are no longer able to do so. The life insurance policy can be described as a lifelong commitment that ensures all premium payments are covered.

On the other hand, credit life insurance will payout to cover the existing debt in the event that the insured individual is retrenched, becomes permanently disabled, or dies. Credit life insurance is important if one has a debt with a lender/bank. The credit life insurance policy will come to an end once all outstanding debt has been settled.
