Need-to-know info

As you work your way through the online application, make sure that you read and understand the terms and conditions of your policy. Also bear the following in mind:

  • While processing your application, we may need to contact you for more information. If we can’t reach you within three working days of your application, your policy may be cancelled.
  • You will be required to have an HIV test within 90 days of your cover start date. Standard Bank’s direct life insurance services will cover the cost of the test and organise for a nurse to come to your home or office to conduct the test at a time convenient to you.
  • You have a 31-day cooling-off period – from the time you receive your policy documents – in which you can cancel your cover.
