  • AgeThere are no restrictions regarding the age of the insured. However, if the insured is older than 70, the insurance may only be taken out at single premium payment (once-only deposit). In other words: if a person is older than 70 and such person wants to take out insurance, then we do not offer premium payment

There are options for co-insureds!

  • Family members / children of the insured may be co-insured and this applies to children up to 21 years of age. If a person is older than 21, a separate insurance / policy has to be taken out.
