Hi Heather

Both hubby and I are in our 30's, so the RA's would not have been paid out to us anyway... until someone saw the light and let expats take their RA money earlier than retirement age.
Endowments, Unit Trusts and life insurances were all cancelled and paid out before we left - had to pay for our tickets somehow!

Thanks for your help!

Shirls, my DH is only 38 and I am 42, Sanlam hasn't got a problem with us making our RA's Paid up.  We just had to provide the proof of immigration.  I will look for the documentation that they asked for and tell you what it is, then you might have a better chance.  Will get back to you tomorrow!
