Not only does the PPS Sickness and Permanent Incapacity benefit pay out even if you are still earning an income,
it offers a waiting period as short as seven days. Here is how some of our members have benefited:
When Rassie's illness left him with lung damage, he could no longer continue with his chosen profession.
Losing her voice meant that Karien was also in danger of losing her income
When Leon lost three fingers in an accident, he knew his life would change forever.
When Liane was paralysed in an accident at the age of 25, her ability to support herself was in doubt.
Vaughan understood his career had risks, so he made sure his income was covered in case of an accident.
Severe clinical burns caused physical as well as emotional trauma for Varsha, but she overcame this setback.

Direct profit allocation to the PPS Profit-Share Account.
This breakthrough benefit for PPS members was born of research and insight into the complications our members might face during their pregnancy. The standout factor is that if a member is unable to attend to her usual duties due to sickness or a complication attributable to pregnancy, childbirth or miscarriage, PPS will pay this sickness benefit. This ensures that a member is not disadvantaged at a time when she is most vulnerable.
NOTE: The sickness must meet the normal claims criteria i.e., it must be medically justified, the member’s benefit waiting periods (for both the sickness and the admission rider benefits) apply and must be confirmed by a gynaecologist/obstetrician.
When you suffer from an illness or medical condition, we cover you for up to two years while you:
- adjust your usual professional duties
- change your work methods
After a sickness claim has been paid for an accumulated 728 days and you are still totally or partially unable to attend to your usual professional duties, the Permanent Incapacity benefit will kick in.
