Mutual and Federal Insurance
Who is Mutual and Federal?
It’s taken 180 years for Mutual & Federal to become one of the top leading short-term insurance companies in the country. Beginning operations in 1831 as the South African Fire and Life Assurance Company, they have grown to become one of the foremost insurers in the country. Mutual and Federal have more recently rebranded as Old Mutual Insure.
They offer life insurance, short-term insurance, disability cover, and a wide range of insurance products, such as Mutual and Federal car insurance. Their new iWYZE insurance product now makes short-term insurance available direct to the public. Old Mutual Insure also offers an innovative insurance product called “Allsure”.
How Does Mutual & Federal Insurance Cover Work?
The purpose of insurance cover is to alleviate the financial burden when you need to pay the cost of damages resulting from an insured peril, the cost of loss, or the cost of repair. Since these costs and medical expenses can be much more than the average person can afford, insurance is an uncomplicated way to ensure you will be okay even if these events happen.
The insurer will make an agreement of insurance with you, the insured, by giving you documents to sign. They also sign these policy documents, and the details of your agreement are in it. In return for paying out claims for insured perils, you agree to pay a monthly premium to the insurer, in this case, Mutual & Federal Insurance (Now Old Mutual Insure).
An insured peril can, for example, be a motor vehicle accident or robbery. There are usually exclusions included in your contract of insurance such as suicide, and sometimes there are waiting periods. To find out what the scope of your cover is, it is best to read through your policy documents before you sign the agreement.
