Death Cover

In the event of your death, the death sum insured is designed to be paid to your beneficiary as per your beneficiary nomination form. This is an important issue and you should refer to the guidelines on the Death Benefit Nomination Form. If you have any enquiries please contact Capital Managers

Total and Permanent Disablement Cover

In the event that you suffer an injury or illness that leaves you totally and permanently disabled, the lump sum amount that you are insured for is paid to you less any tax that may be applicable.
