Santam’s digital life assurance offshoot, Indie is now the first South African Insurance company to open a tech-enabled self Service Store, with their opening in Soweto last week.
Indie offers an affordable mix of life, disability and funeral cover which through its tech-driven approach is fully underwritten and simple to buy directly online. through a call centre, or via a broker. Although, you will still need to answer questions about your health and risk profile, the questions have been simplified to maximise efficiency and minimise confusion and hassle.
Another plus of the Indie product is that a portion of your premium goes into an investment account called Bounty. Depending on your age, you get up to 100% of your monthly premium paid into the Investment each month, meaning that while paying for life cover, you are building wealth. The Soweto brick & and mortar outlet allows you to buy a fully underwritten policy in about 10 minutes.
In the store, there are experts who can answer any question you may have.
