Momentum caves in, to pay R2.4m to Ganas in revolution for life insurance industry

The company says it has taken a decision to pay out for victims of violent crime regardless of other technicalities.

Despite previously sticking to their guns over a rejected life cover insurance payout to a client who had not disclosed a pre-existing condition even though it was not related to his violent death, life insurer Momentum has been pressured into paying out the R2.4 million he was insured for to Nathan Ganas' widow, Denise.
