FAQ

Frequently asked questions

What happens when I leave my current employer and still want to continue with the scheme?

What happens if I relocate or move to another country, does the policy still cover?    
If you relocate due to work and if you are still a South African resident and employed by the same employer, then you can keep it. If you relocate and take up citizenship of another country- and are no longer employed by the same South African employer, it is not possible to continue with the policy because the policy covers people permanently residing within the borders of South Africa.

Can my employer upgrade our policies to a higher benefit in the future?

Please note that the entire scheme has to be upgraded or downgraded. If the migration is to higher benefits, there will be additional waiting period to the difference in benefits from old to new. If the migration is to lower, there will be no additional waiting period.
