Are you Black Taxed?

there are funeral policies and education policies – should there be a policy for so-called black tax? Black what? From Lagos to Maputo, just ask any middle-class African. You just got paid: your aunt asks for $50 for her routine medical check-up; your cousin needs an extra $30 for her tuition fees; your mother needs […]

Cancer claims reveal risk trends

Recent statistics made available by Liberty Life reveal that cancer is the leading cause of claims paid by the assurer in 2015. One in four claims paid by Liberty were for cancer, and the proportion of claims for cancer is increasing, even at younger ages. Motor vehicle accidents are typically cited as the reason that […]

LIFE INSURANCE LIBERATIONS

With all of the pressures of modern life it is nice to know that you can offer yourself and your loved ones some reprieve from the stressful doubt of forethought. Life insurance can free you from certain worries and ease your mind when it comes to the future of your kin. Life insurance can achieve […]

5 MORE FACTS ABOUT HOSPITAL PLANS

As I wrote in a previous article, full medical cover has become an expensive purchase that few South Africans can afford. As we see a significant increase in the purchase of hospital plans, we are also seeing a decrease in how much our clients fully understand the big differences between an old-school medical aid and […]

5 FACTS ABOUT HOSPITAL PLANS

Full medical cover has become an expensive purchase that few South Africans can afford. This is the reason for the increased popularity of hospital plans that cover your medical bills if you are hospitalised. Having come from a generation that largely understood medical cover as a ‘covers all’ policy, it’s important to run through these […]

WHAT WILL IT REALLY COST ME?

The current SA stats for breast cancer reveal that one in thirty-six women has breast cancer. My blog last week spoke about the general costs and overall statistics of cancer, but today I’d like to get a little more specific as to the expected ‘realistic’ impact that breast cancer will have on those who may […]

PLAN FOR THE HIDDEN COSTS OF BREAST CANCER

Last year I shared an article on my blog that spoke to the stark reality of the tragic impact that cancer has had (and continues to have) on almost every family in South Africa. It’s very rare, in fact, to meet someone who hasn’t either had cancer themselves, or has a close family member who […]

A DIFFERENT APPROACH TO DREAD DISEASE COVER

One of the reasons that I have my blog and Facebook page is that this industry changes about as regularly as the price of petrol. A financial solution that we relied on five years ago may still apply, but it also may not. There may be better options, better approaches; better products, for your needs. […]

RECOVERY MONEY

Unless you’ve already had a debilitating illness, the last thing you think about is your health failing you for anything longer than your hospital stay. As a result, we tend to only include a hospital plan, and perhaps some GAP cover in our financial planning. But what happens if the accident means that you can’t […]
