How it Works
Protecting our families through difficult times is something of importance to us. But have you ever stopped to think about how your family will cope financially should the unexpected happen to you?
The loss of a loved one can be an emotional stress on family members left behind. With the high costs of funeral arrangements, it can quickly become a financial stress as well. SwaziPost Insurance is designed to assist during these events.
The Plan has two cover options, Silver and Gold Plans and you can choose the most suitable one according to your needs and affordability. Each option covers a policyholder, one spouse and a maximum of four children with a choice to add parent and parents in law as well as extended family members.
In the event that the policyholder passes away due to an accident, double the cash benefit as per the cover option selected will be paid out to the family. Our plans also include the Family support benefit which is paid out to the family in the event that the main member passes away. The benefit will ensure that the family is looked after even when the main member is no longer there.
You will have peace of mind knowing that you have the best protection against unforeseen events.
As the main member you must be older than 18 years but younger than 70 years, your spouse may not be older than age
70 years and your children may not be older than age 17 years when taking out the insurance. Your parents and parents in law may not be older than age 80 years and your extended family members may not be older than age 65 years.
You can choose a Plan option that meets your needs from these package options.
