How is my premium calculated?Your female dread disease cover premium is based on your specific risk profile. This means that factors like your age, gender, occupation and health will all be considered when your monthly premium is calculated.

When will a policy pay out?This product pays out a percentage of the sum assured if the life assured, or up to four children of the life assured, suffers an event as defined in the policy schedule. These events include certain types of cancer, systemic lupus, pregnancy related complications and accidental HIV exposure.

Only one claim will be paid per event. Any claim that is paid out will reduce the amount available for future claims. Once a cumulative amount of 100% of the total sum assured has been paid out, no further payouts under this benefit will be considered and cover will cease.
