Before being known today as Union Life Insurance, the company was first registered as Road Funeral Undertakers in 1935 and was later called HTG Life in 1993. From HTG it again changed its name in 1998 to Union Life Insurance. Union Life Insurance is fully black-owned and is Financial Services Board Rules & Regulations compliant.
Union Life Insurance offers funeral insurance, life policies and policy benefits under assistance. They recognise the hardship of people leaving family members without anything to get by when they pass on. That is why their life and funeral insurance policies are tailor made to suit the needs of South Africans, who mostly live with an extended family.
Premiums offered by Union Life Insurance are competitive so customers can afford to pay them without having to spend too much but still get a quality life insurance.
