UNA Life Insurance and Endowments

Permanent insurance

Permanent insurance provides protection from the moment the contract goes into effect until the insured dies. During the lifetime of the insured there is an accumulation of cash value that can be accessed and used for various benefits.

Term Insurance

Term Life Insurance provides a solution for your short-term life
insurance needs, protecting you and your family for a specific period.
Payout only within term of policy.

Endowments

Savings and insurance: two products for the price of one.
Endowments help you save money for important moments in your
life such as your child’s or grandchild’s higher education or marriage,
or for unforeseen future expenses. At the same time, the endowment
serves as a life insurance policy until the date of maturity.
