How to login to your 1Life policyholder profile?

Login by clicking on the policyholder login button on the top right of the 1Life home page. You will be asked to enter your ID, which we’ll use to identify you. Once you have entered your ID number, you will receive a one-time password (OTP) on your cell phone. Enter the OTP and you will be able to view and update your policy.

If your mobile number changes
The cell number we use is the one listed on your policy application. If your number has changed please contact Client Services to update it.

Policyholder login screen

View and change your policy

When you’re logged in you’ll see menu buttons such as manage, edit and save at the top and bottom of each section and page. You can use these buttons to navigate as well as to update your details. There are also drop-down menus in certain fields that you can use to select different options for that field. For example, in the Titles fields you can select Miss or Mr.

Top tip: Always remember to click ‘Save’ when you make changes.

An example: add a beneficiary
You will need to enter ID numbers and email addresses for your beneficiaries so have these on hand.

Active policy

  1. On the ‘Your active policies’ screen, click on ‘View details’ for the policy you want to update beneficiaries on. This will take you to a summary page for that policy.
  2. You will see a navigation menu consisting of four horizontal menu tabs. To view and change beneficiaries you need to be on the ‘Policy summary’ tab.
  3. Click on ‘Manage beneficiaries’.
  4. Now you can add, delete or amend beneficiary details. If you have more than one beneficiary, you need to allocate a percentage of the policy benefits to each beneficiary so that they add up to 100%. For example, you may leave 50% to your spouse and 50% to a parent.
  5. Click ‘Save’ to save your changes. You can then check your changes on the ‘Policy summary’ tab.

How we keep your details secure

We’ve made sure your details remain confidential and are secure, through various checks on the system. We use two factor authentication, and link to secure systems to check things such as ID numbers and bank account details. The system uses your mobile number on file for a security check, so you cannot change that online.
