Extensive Disability

Do you have a plan in place if you cannot earn an income because of a permanent injury or illness? Will you and your family be financially stable if this happens? Do you know if your medical aid fund will cover all the medical expenses of your injury or illness? To ensure that you have the right answers to all these questions, you might want to consider protecting yourself with GREENLIGHT Extensive Disability Benefit.

How does it work?

It will pay you a lump sum if your illness or injury is permanent and you cannot do your job or normal day-to-day activities. It will pay a partial amount if you have a less severe medical problem that causes some loss of bodily function and interferes with one or more day-to-day activities such as your ability to eat, bath and get dressed on your own.

  • The amount of cover you can buy varies from R100 000 to R30 million.
  • You have the choice to protect your income for your entire life (whole-life cover) or for a specific period (term cover).
  • The Extensive Disability (Own) Benefit offers protection if you cannot do your specific job, while our Extensive Disability Benefit protects you if you cannot do your job or any other reasonable job.

More reasons to choose GREENLIGHT Extensive Disability cover:

  • Offers protection if you cannot do your specific job (own option).
  • Covers mild and severe permanent illnesses and injuries.
  • Protects you when you cannot do normal day-to-day activities such as dressing, bathing or eating on your own.
