Policy Surrenders

Cash in your South African retirement annuities, preservation funds & provident funds with the help of Rand Rescue.

We can help you unlock the value of your retirement policies before they mature.

Depending on your policy type, policy value, and your age, you may be able to surrender your retirement policies in South Africa without completing the full tax emigration process.

Some policy types like preservation funds can usually be surrendered without tax emigration, if you have not previously taken a withdrawal from the policy. You will need to have your South African barcode ID book or smart ID card, and an active and compliant tax number in order to surrender policies without completing tax emigration from South Africa.

You may also qualify to surrender your retirement annuity without completing tax emigration if you are aged 55 or over, and the value of the policy is below R247,500.
