Meet Mandy.

Mandy's mother always made sure her children were provided for, and knew the risks early enough to take out a sturdy life policy.


Mandy lost her mother at 16 - fortunately with the proceeds from her mom's life insurance, she and her sisters were able to settle debts and continue to live their life.

And now...

Mandy is always told she is just like her mom, and just like her mom she took out a MyCover™ life policy with us for less than R 400 per month to make sure her family is protected like she was.

Frequently asked questions

Can minor children be beneficiaries of life cover?

Technically, yes. However, this is not best practice, as your minor children’s finances still fall under the curatorship of their guardian. If you have minor children you should consider the use of a testamentary trust as a vehicle to protect their inheritance.

Who can be a beneficiary of my life cover ?

Because MyLegacy Cover™ is an extender benefit of the Legacy Protection Plan™, you can nominate either an individual, a trust or your estate as the Beneficiary without incurring any executor’s fees.

Do my monthly premiums increase annually?

MyCover™ premiums increase by the higher of 4% or CPI plus an age factor.

Can I bequeath to an Islamic heir?

No, bequests are only for non-heirs. If a bequest is made in favour of an heir, this would provide an unfair advantage to one heir over another. The other heirs have the right to block all or part of a bequest made to an heir. However, heirs can be nominated as the beneficiaries of the MyCover™ extender on the Tazkiya™ Family Takaful. It would be better to give a gift while you are alive, but be mindful that this can still create an unfair disadvantage.    

What is the maximum entry age for MyCover™?

Our maximum entry age for MyCover™ is 59 years old.

Why do you need life cover and EduCare™ (education cover)?

Life cover is life insurance or death cover which provides a cash lump sum in the event of your death, or if you become severely ill or impaired (you can include critical illness cover as part of your life insurance or take it out as a separate policy).A monthly premium to your insurer for life cover assists in safeguarding your loved ones from financial hardship if you die or suffer from one of a list of illnesses, as per your plan. The money can be put towards funeral costs, payment of a mortgage, debts, or your family’s living expenses.Though the aim may be to ensure that there is enough funding for your family when you are no longer around, we find that this amount often isn’t sufficient to cover children’s education. This is why we created the education protection plan, EduCare™, an estate planning product that provides dedicated cover for your children’s education and care needs should you become impaired, severely ill or pass away. EduCare™ helps cover school fees, personal care needs, school clothes, stationery, sporting equipment, food, transport and tertiary education.Both life cover and education protection cover are important and serve different functions. While life cover is essential to protect your family, it easily gets wrapped up in other things like bond payments, cars and other debts and expenses when you pass away.With EduCare™ there is money securely ring-fenced to take care of your children's educational and care needs if you pass away, become severely ill or impaired.

Not to brag, but we're kinda good at what we do.

Don't take our word for it though...

The painful process of winding up my late dad’s estate has been made efficient and pleasant. I recommend Capital Legacy based on their representation, vast competencies, follow-through abilities and general customer service. The staff members are empathetic and efficient, taking a personal interest in the client.
One of the customer care agents contacted me to remedy a frustration that I had been experiencing. Not only was he professional and prompt, but he was so charming and friendly that I ended the call laughing and having a better day. Thanks!
Thank you so much for your excellent service. I truly appreciate your assistance. It’s such a pleasure to receive good service, especially this time of the year.It was a blessing to have someone calling me and extending a friendly, patient and helping hand.

May you be blessed for your kind demeanor.
