Waiting Period Information

The waiting period is a period in which insured lives are not covered for some or all events, even though premiums are being paid.

Waiting periods can apply when you:

• First start your plan.

• Change your cover levels.

• Add an insured life to your plan.

• Add a new optional benefit to your plan.

What is the waiting period for Metropolitan funeral cover?

A waiting period is a period of time in which an insured life is not insured for some or all events. Waiting periods apply to each insured life. The waiting period starts from the first day of the month in which we receive your first premium.

Your plan starts from the first of the month in which Metropolitan receives your first premium. For example, Mr Jones buys a plan and pays his first premium on the 15th of April. The start date of the plan will be the 1st of April, which is also the date that the waiting period starts.
