The life cover use will be different from one family to the next but life insurance payouts are usually used to cover debts, living expenses, education, and other financial needs for your spouse, children, parents, or other beneficiaries.

The importance of underwriting

Underwriting is the process by which an insurer will try to ascertain your level of health by requesting an HIV test as well as asking you a series of health-related questions such as whether or not you smoke.

These questions and the blood test result will simply ensure that you’re given an appropriate premium based on your individual risk level. The healthier you are, the lower your premiums will be.

  • Critical illness and disability cover will pay out a lump sum if you’re disabled or are diagnosed with a critical illness.
