Many South Africans face salary cuts, complete income loss, and even retrenchment. Many people are in desperate financial situations, with no idea how to support themselves and their families. One of the best ways to ensure financial security is going under debt review and getting covered by the insurance that this includes.


What is credit life insurance?

As explained in the National Credit Act 34 of 2005, credit life insurance is an insurance policy that covers the repayment of your debt if you cannot make payments due to death, disability or, most pertinently, loss of income due to forced unpaid leave or retrenchment. It is a mandatory part of the Debtline debt review process and an invaluable way of securing your finances.


One of the biggest challenges faced by South Africans is the navigation of the insurance process. You have to factor in your budget, credit score, dependents, debt status, and many more variables that can make the process incredibly overwhelming and confusing. Debtline can advise you on simplifying the insurance process as part of your debt review journey.
