Fenomenal Woman Life Cover

Statistics show that South African women are at more risk than ever of suffering an accident or assault that results in a permanent disability, or worse yet, death. And this can have devastating consequences on the victim’s dependants.

As a fenomenal woman, you know how it feels to have people relying on you. And in the event of your death, you want to be sure that your loved ones have the money they need to afford the life they deserve.

Which is why Fenomenal Woman Life Cover Benefit is perfect for you and will support your family when you’re no longer there to provide for them. No medical examination or HIV test is required for cover up to R250 000, and if you’re between 18 and 65 you cannot be turned down. You further have an option to take life cover of more than R1 million if a medical examination and an HIV test are done.

For life cover that does not require medical tests, your monthly premium depends on your age and your choice of other Fenomenal Woman product options. You can also take out cover for your spouse.

Note: A waiting period of 12 months applies in the event of death from natural causes, and 24 months in the event of death from pre-existing conditions or suicide.

Additional FREE benefits:

The following additional benefits are included in the Fenomenal Woman offer at no extra charge:

Baby Bonus

Every mother knows that a new baby brings not only bliss but also extra costs for things like nappies, baby food, a baby cot and clothes.

Fenomonal Woman pays out a lump sum Baby Bonus of R2 000 for each of the first three babies you have while you are covered. Which helps with the additional costs of a new baby and lets you focus on looking after your little bundle of joy.

There is no additional premium for this benefit.

Note: The policy must have been in force for a minimum of 12 months before the birth of the first baby. Stillborn children are covered after 29 weeks from the date of the conception.
