More global opportunities, more lasting value - The Dollar Life Plan


We know how important value is to you in life - personal values, value for money, and added value in the form of benefits and rewards.

At Discovery Life, value is equally as important to us - making sure our customers know how valued they are, and how far we will go to ensure their experience with us is a valuable one. That's why this we've enhanced the Dollar Life Plan with a limited time offer - a R10.90/$1 exchange rate on our Dollar Life Plan!

Enjoy more value than ever with the newly enhanced Dollar Life Plan

Ever since we first introduced the Dollar Life Plan as an alternative to onshore insurance, more and more customers have begun to take advantages of its unique benefits. An offshore life insurance product with protection in US dollars, the Dollar Life Plan offers benefits that are defined and paid in US dollars that grow in line with US inflation.

Not only does this allow you to diversify your financial portfolio, it also allows you exposure to a global economy, as well as protection against potential depreciation of the rand. And in a society that is becoming increasingly globalised and interconnected, the Dollar Life Plan's focus on risk protection in one of the world's most widely-used currencies is an important and valuable one.

Enhanced benefits for further peace of mind

Now, however, we're taking the Dollar Life Plan one step further, offering you even more value than ever before. That's because for a limited time only, if you take out a new Dollar Life Plan, we'll give you a preferential exchange rate of R10.90 on the premiums you pay for the first THREE YEARS of your policy, provided that the exchange rate remains less than R18/$1. And should it rise above this during the first three years of your policy, we'll apply a 20% discount to your monthly premiums, giving you further financial stability and valuable peace of mind. Should the exchange rate drop below R10.90/$, normal market rates will apply.  

If you've never considered taking your assets offshore before, consider this - that for a minimum Dollar Life Plan premium of $50, combined with our R10.90/$1 special offer, you'll be able to enjoy global risk protection from only R545 per month. That's because at Discovery Life, we believe that everyone deserves to enjoy financial stability, no matter where life may take them. So whether you choose to stay at home or retire overseas, you can be sure your future will always stay bright.

Our Dollar Life Plan special offer only applies to new policies activated by 31 August 2017, so if you're interested in giving your family the benefit of international protection and continued well-being, speak to your financial adviser today or leave your details on this page. The sooner you do, the sooner we can start to add value to your life on a global scale.

Terms and conditions apply. Offer ends 31 August 2017.
