There is no argument that the pandemic has considerably changed how we live our lives, especially our customs and habits, but there has also been a change in the way we conduct our everyday errands.
This is quite apparent in banking and bills payment where, normally, people would commute to town to deposit cash into their account, withdraw funds from their savings or stand in a queue to pay their monthly bills.
With the new restrictive COVID-19 measures in place, most of these services have been limited and people are being asked to turn to alternative forms of payment.

It’s eerie enough to map out a plan for your own death, but to add your family, as well, can be a scary thought. However, it makes the most economic sense and here’s why you should add your family to your Funeral Insurance Plan.
The Funeral Insurance Plan is one of the most affordable insurance products within our portfolio of products. It can cost as little as SCR80 per month depending on your age and your insurance plan. Adding your family to your plan can likely be a nominal amount, in addition to what you are already paying.
Who can be added to your plan?
If you are the main member of the plan, you can add your spouse (age above 18 years and less than 65 years), your dependent child (age less than 25 years if studying full time at a tertiary institution, otherwise age less than 21 years) and your parents (age up to 70 years).
What are the benefits of adding your family members to your plan?
You all get the same benefits under one plan. If the plan is for a SCR30,000 assured sum upon death for yourself, this amount will also be made available upon the passing away of each family under your plan.
Another benefit is the lifetime coverage for some of your family members. Although your dependent child can only be included up to the ages of 21 and 25, depending on their studies, your spouse and your parents can be included until death.
If your family member passes away, you won’t have to be financially burdened with considerable funeral costs, especially if you are an only child or a single parent.
January is commonly known for torrential rainfall and flash flooding in Seychelles and this year has not been much different. It is generally one of the most important months for homeowners with a Householders Policy.
Torrential rainfall and flash floods can cause damage to houses, walls and even vehicles on site. The force of the water can cause structural damage to the building, including carrying debris within the perimeter and inside the house. Heavy winds and storms can also cause fallen debris such as tree branches to damage the roof, walls and windows of the house Other damage can be caused by landslides and boulders crashing into the homes. Erosion can also weaken the foundation of the home, especially those built on stilts.
If you have a Householders Policy, your policy would cover damage to the building of your house, including roofs, walls, floors, windows and doors if you have the Building cover. Your policy would also cover damage resulting out of the flood to your furniture and other items if you have a Content cover.
If your house was recently damaged by flood or other debris from the torrential rainfall, contact Sacos to make a Claims for the damage caused.
