Why some of our users choose Shackleton Life:


  • The Shackleton Life Immediate Needs Policy is available to anyone over 18 and under 60 years of age – no medicals or blood tests required.
  • You can select cover of between R50 000 and R200 000.
  • It’s a ‘whole of life’ policy, which means that there is no term to the cover. As long as you are paying your premiums, you may keep the policy as long as you choose to.
  • In the case of accidental death, the full sum will be paid to the nominated beneficiary within two working days of receipt of all claim documentation. (In the case of natural death, certain waiting periods will apply.)
  • You can choose to create a joint policy, meaning two lives may be insured under one policy. (In the event of the death of one Life Assured, the policy will continue in the name of the surviving policy holder, with a recalculated premium.)

Did you know?


  • The Shackleton Life Immediate Needs Policy is underwritten by OMART (Old Mutual Alternative Risk Transfer Limited), a registered long-term insurer, so you can lean on the legacy of that household name.
  • Shackleton has you covered for more than immediate needs in the event of a death. Visit their website for more information on their life-insurance products, bond-protection insurance and comprehensive homeowner’s insurance.
  • The Shackleton Group is named after intrepid Antarctic explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton. Like Sir Ernest, The Shackleton Group’s teams are innovative solution seekers who recognise the importance of human capital.
