#COVID-19: Old Mutual offers 4bn worth of free life cover to health workers
Old Mutual is providing R4 billion worth of free life cover for health workers on the front lines of the COVID-19 outbreak.
The company is making it available to about 430,000 registered healthcare workers working to combat the virus.
Old Mutual head of financial education John Manyike says, however, this not your traditional funeral or life cover where you can expect premiums.
It is not a policy per se, it is a cover that we are making freely available and duly accessible to register healthcare workers on the frontline of the COVID-19 pandemic.John Manyike, Head of financial education - Old Mutual
We are going to be sharing the call centre number where families of healthcare workers can call us in the event of death of their loved one effective from 1 April, right until 31 December. So there is no need for people to worry about premiums flowing, Old Mutual will make that cover.John Manyike, Head of financial education - Old Mutual
We felt that this was very important because we are acutely aware of the critical role that our frontline healthcare workers are doing. They are constantly exposed to the risk of the virus.John Manyike, Head of financial education - Old Mutual
