Not sure you need Salary Protection? Here's why you do.

Have you ever thought about what your life would look like if you weren’t able to work as a result of illness or injury? What the loss of income might mean to your standard of living? And whether you’d still be able to cover your day-to-day and monthly expenses? Salary Protection from Standard Bank’s direct life insurance services pays the bills until you’re able to work once again or until you turn 65. If you don’t already have it in place, here are four reasons to seriously consider it.
