  • Total and permanent disablement cover. This type of cover provides a lump sum payment if you become totally and permanently disabled and can no longer work.
  • Death cover. This policy provides a lump sum payment when you die, allowing you to provide for your loved ones and help them repay debts.

A default level of this cover will be available automatically when you join (if you're eligible), and you can opt to increase your cover at any time.
