You may or may not know it – many don’t - but you’re almost certainly paying credit life insurance on all your loans.
Even those who realise they’re paying for credit life insurance don’t know they can choose their credit life insurance provider – you don’t have to accept the default option!
Credit life insurance covers you if you’re unable to repay a loan due to death, disability or retrenchment.
Yalu believes its offering is better than everything else in the market, for these reasons:
The premium reduces every month as the loan amount reduces. You only pay for the cover you need to secure the outstanding balance.
The plan refunds 10% of premiums at the end of the loan term if you have not claimed on the policy.
Simplicity – it’s the first and only policy in the market you can buy effortlessly online in under five minutes.
Yalu removes the pain of switching from a credit life insurance provider by sending the cancellation letter required by your existing credit life policy on your behalf.
Yalu guarantees coverage for all benefits not required by the credit life insurance regulations that your current credit life insurer covers.
Affordable and transparent, with clearly defined benefits, premiums and speedy claims processes.
- One policy covers all loan commitments - saving you on unnecessary admin fees and debit order costs for multiple policies.
Yalu currently only covers personal loans but plans to soon extend its offering to student loans and credit cards.

Our underwriter is Old Mutual… they’ve been really amazing for us… It’s blindingly simple, so they just supported us all the way…— Nkazi Sokhulu, Yalu
The biggest issue we came across was the credibility deficit… The more we showed our depth of knowledge… people started warming up to us…— Nkazi Sokhulu, Yalu
We’re here to guarantee people that in their time of need Yalu will be able to pay…— Nkazi Sokhulu, Yalu
