Have peace of mind knowing that your loved ones will not have to struggle when you are no longer able to provide for them. An essential part of financial planning is creating provisions for your family following your death, and the BetterLife Protection policy can help you do so.

Your house is probably one of the biggest investments you’ll ever make. This is why it is so important to ensure that your family doesn’t lose your home should something happen to you. The BetterLife Protection policy offers you that all-important cover for your bond, up to R2.2 million.

- Optional Dread Disease – lump sum payment on diagnosis of a dread disease from our predefined list.
- Optional Retrenchment – provides a monthly payment equal to 1.2644% of the insured person’s death benefit sum assured, should an insured person covered by this benefit be retrenched during the period of insurance for a maximum of six monthly payments during any five-year period.
