1Life donates a portion of all premiums to fund the Truth About Money initiative.
If you do not have a Boston City Campus or Business College in your area or you are unable to attend the financial course after being accepted, Truth About Money in conjunction with The Money School, will have nationwide seminars and roadshows throughout the year. To find out when the next seminar is in your area, contact us today.
At Truth About Money we believe that by educating one person about the importance of financial understanding we are paving the way for them to pass on this knowledge to the broader community. We strive to equip South African citizens with the tools and education that will enable them to understand and take control of their finances and debt.
Financial education helps consumers be more aware of available financial services and be more confident about using them. Education is also instrumental in enabling consumers to compare financial products and make effective use and choices of these products. Financial education promotes long-term saving and sound planning for retirement as well as for wiser use of credit. Through this initiative we believe that we will make a change in consumer‘s lives. The fact is that even if we only change one life, we have potentially impacted dozens.
From 1Life’s point of view, we have grown significantly over our years of operation and the brand has gained significant strength in the financial services sector. As a result, we feel that we are in a position, as a responsible insurer, to play our part in initiatives that uplift the broader community. We will endeavour to continue with this project as a long term sustainable offer to all South Africans.
