We know from our experience in the industry that clients who have credit life insurance in place, benefit from the financial security of a backup in place would someone in the family pass away or be ill and unable to pay loans, credit cards and other debts left behind.

Cover your Debts

Our cover is arranged in two categories, which is a lump sum payment of your loans and accounts in the event of death.
