Disability insurance, also known as disability cover or disablement cover, pays out between R50 000 and R10 million if an accident or illness results in permanent disability.
You pay a premium every month for disability cover. If you are permanently disabled by an illness or accident and unable to earn a living, your disability insurance policy will pay out up to R10 million, tax free. The pay-out from your policy can replace all or some of your income, and take care of additional expenses like customising or remodeling your home or car to cater for your disability.
You have to be between the ages of 18 and 59 to purchase 1Life Disability Insurance. Your cover level will decrease from your 60th birthday until five years before you turn 65 or your selected retirement age, whichever is earlier. Note that there are some exclusions, or conditions under which claims might be rejected, for instance if you take part in dangerous sports or activities. These are listed in the policy schedule, so be sure to take note of them.

1Life Disability Insurance pays out in the event of disablement. You can choose between two types of personal disability insurance. Occupation-based Disablement, also called Lump Sum Disablement, which pays out the full amount if you are permanently disabled and cannot work. Event-based Disablement pays out a percentage of your cover amount for disability, according to the tables in your policy book, even if you are still able to work.
