Perpetual Annuity      Underwritten by Old Mutual Alternative Risk Transfer Ltd (OMART), a registered long-term insurer in the Old Mutual Group.

The South African Government has recognised the needs of retired investors during the COVID-19 crisis and is temporarily allowing living annuity clients to change their income limits in order to access or preserve funds for a limited period of 4 months, from 1 June 2020 to 30 September 2020, irrespective of policy anniversary dates. At the end of the period, your previous income selection, or latest anniversary income options, will apply. Please complete the Temporary Income Percentage Change Form if you would like to make use of the temporary income options. Please continue to use the regular Policy Review Form to submit your anniversary instructions, and if you would like to make any other changes to your investment.

Transfer your Retirement Annuity, Preservation, Pension and Provident Fund (at no cost and tax-free) to our Living Annuity when you need a monthly income at retirement (age 55).
