Life Insurance

VMware provides Life Insurance through Discovery Life.


All regular VMware employees are eligible for Life Insurance.


If you should die, or become permanently disabled due to an accident, while in the service of VMware due to illness or injury, your beneficiaries will receive a lump sum payment according to the following schedule:

Death Benefit:

  • Sum insured 4 x times the annual gross salary (with the option to flex up 2 x times at the employee’s own cost).
  • 100 % of the Sum Assured is payable to the heirs under the civil legislation or to formally designated Beneficiaries.
  • Beneficiary nomination is required for all members for Life Insurance benefit. This form should be completed on the Discovery app or Member Portal.

Funeral Benefit:

  • A funeral grant ranging between ZAR 1,875 to ZAR 15,000, is covered by the insurance.
  • A Funeral nomination form is required for a Funeral claim – in the absence of the Funeral nomination form, payment will be made to the Estate Late account, with no exceptions. Funeral nomination form should be completed on the Discovery app or Member Portal.


VMware pays 100% of the premium cost for Life Insurance. Employees are responsible for paying the optional 2 x voluntary coverage upgrade costs.
