Life cover amounts and add-ons

The life cover amount will be calculated to meet your specific need and budget. This will take into account your debts, amount of income, expenses, and how much you’re able to pay toward your plan.

In addition to this tailored cover amount that is paid out in the event that you pass away, you can benefit from critical illness and disability cover which will take care of you and your family if anything happens to you that renders you unable to work.
