At Assupol, our purpose is to serve those who serve and ensure that we deliver on the promises we make to our clients, especially in their time of need.
We have considered the impact of Covid-19 seriously and are prepared for its possible consequences. We encourage you, to have peace of mind knowing that you will be covered and receive what is due to you when the need arises:
Under Assupol’s funeral and life cover products, a Covid-19-related death is classified as a natural death and will not be treated differently from all other natural causes of death. All valid claims in this regard will be paid applying the normal six- (6) month waiting period for claims due to natural causes.
In terms of disability and critical illness cover, Assupol offers lump-sum cover on the Progress 4Sure, Progress 4Life and Progress Legacy Plans. Claims for these benefits will continue to be assessed based on the current claim definitions. On the Progress 4Sure Plan, the 18-month phasing in of cover for claims due to natural causes will apply.
Assupol has placed no limitations on clients to take-up new products due to Covid-19. We advise our clients to relook our life and funeral products to ensure that their loved ones are covered for risk.
