Shackleton Life
Hi. I'm Ms Ismail from Cape Town. I was retrenched this year and after just being with Shackleton Life for a little bit more than a year now, I am pleased and confident to say that this is the insurance to beat. I enquired about lodging a claim and Sonia assisted me with the necessary documentation needed to submit my claim and it was not long before I had the peace of mind that everything was taken care of. I really must commend Sonia and her team for a hassle-free experience and the way she dealt with my claim made me feel that she cares about me and my concerns. Thank you so much. Highly appreciated.

Everyone promises, but you delivered.
Retrenchment, the one word that strikes immediate fear in any person's heart and mind. Devastation, loss and helplessness is usually the first emotions that accompany the news of being retrenched. I experienced exactly this earlier this year. When I received my notice of retrenchment I contacted Shackleton Life's claims department and was immediately assisted by Sonia Naicker. Sonia assisted with precise instructions and complete information on the process to follow. Without hesitation Sonia gave me the best customer service I have ever experienced, friendly, fast and efficient. Sonia follows through with every commitment she makes, whether its a response on email or just a phone call on the process or feedback. I recommend Shackleton Life to any person who is serious about insuring what matters to them. To the management team at Shackleton Life, I must applaud you for appointing Sonia at your company, she is most certainly a great asset and delivers exceptional peace of mind to your customers when it really matters, Thank you for exceptional service!
