Funeral Cover will assist you by paying out a pre-determined lump sum of money to a policyholder or registered beneficiary, in the event of the main member or one of the registered beneficiaries passing away.

One of the most traumatic events in life is the death of a loved one. The situation is made worse if that person was the main breadwinner.

Funeral costs can run into the thousands and often funds are tied up to an estate. Our Funeral Cover policy is designed to pay claims as quickly as possible to assist in covering the financial burden posed by even the simplest funeral.


Our Funeral Cover policy:

  • Provides benefits for the policyholder and their immediate family members only i.e. spouse and / or child / children under 21 years of age.
  • Spouse is defined for this Policy as the legal or common law husband / wife of a Member or such a person residing with the Member (for a period of at least 12 months proved with an affidavit), who is normally regarded by the community as the Member’s husband / wife.
  • Will pay a pre-determined sum of money to a policyholder or nominated beneficiary in the event of one of the registered beneficiaries passing away.
  • Imposes an entry age limit of 65 years.
  • Applies a general 3 month waiting period, unless in the case of ACCIDENTAL death.
