A group life assurance scheme has been set up for the benefit of staff members. The provisions of the scheme, subject to occasional amendment, are available via the link below. Further information may be obtained from the Human Resources Department.

Permanent and T2 staff, as members of the University of Cape Town Retirement Fund (UCTRF) may choose  UCTRF death cover of between 1x and 5x CoE. In addition, UCTRF members have 1x CoE death cover in terms of a separate group life policy issued to UCT. The premiums for this cover are deducted from the staff member’s UCTRF contribution.

UCTRF members may elect additional separate death cover of between 1 and 4x CoE.  The premiums for any additional cover elected are deducted from the member’s CoE.

UCTRF Members have the option to increase or decrease this cover at specified times. For additional information, see: UCT Retirement fund - Death benefits
