Qualifying criteria

Standalone Disability Cover

The Standalone option will not affect your Life Cover amount when a claim is made.

Combined with Life Cover

The combined option will reduce your Life Cover amount by the disability amount claimed. This type of cover is sometimes referred to as accelerated cover or a rider benefit.

Temporary Premium Waiver Benefit

Critical Illness Cover also offers a Temporary Premium Waiver Benefit. If you submit a Critical Illness claim that meets FNB's requirements, all premiums on your policy will be waived for 6 months.

Cover options

Own Occupation Cover Activities of Daily Living Cover Disability Combination
The own occupation disability option covers you in the event that you become permanently disabled and can no longer perform your own occupation, before retirement age. By your occupation we mean your trade, profession or type of work you do for profit or pay. It is not a specific job with any particular employer and is irrespective of location and availability. The activities of daily living option covers you in the event that you become permanently unable to look after yourself and require help or supervision to perform daily tasks, like getting dressed for example. You can choose to have either Own Occupation or Activities of Daily Living Cover, or you could choose to have both. If you have cover for both disability covers, you will be paid out for the first instance of disability in the event of a claim. For example, if you have Own Occupation and Activities of Daily Living Cover and you become permanently disabled and are not able to perform your occupation, then you will be paid out for this disability only.
