1Life launched in March 2006 as South Africa’s first fully direct life insurer due to a need for consumers to save on their life insurance premiums.
We embarked on a rebrand from 1Lifedirect to 1Life – changing lives in 2012, as our offering expanded beyond direct solutions to brokers and broader distributors for greater market penetration and appeal.
We are trusted by millions of South Africans to provide solutions that suit their needs.
At 1Life, we make cover less complicated by not requiring full medicals*. All of our clients can get covered after taking a quick saliva swab test instead of having numerous invasive procedures.
We keep our clients updated through free financial advice, in-depth blog posts and monthly newsletters.
We are also the only insurer with an online financial needs analysis tool that empowers our clients to get the best cover for their needs. We manage every aspect of your policy through a simple phone call, avoiding any tedious paperwork.
Truth About Money, a 1Life initiative, strives to help South Africans take control of their finances and make better informed decisions that can change their lives. Truth About Money offers debt management and counselling, a free financial education course as well as wills and estate planning. These are geared at helping you to move closer towards the financial freedom that you desire.
