Important facts to remember about your funeral cover:

  • Should you pass away before retirement, your dependants will remain covered until you would have reached the age of 65
  • Should you apply for a lump sum disability benefit and the insurer approves your claim, you and your dependants keep the funeral cover until you reach the age of 65
  • You have a repatriation benefit which takes care of transporting the mortal remains of the deceased to the place of the burial within the borders of South Africa
  • The insurer requires that notice of the claim needs to be given within six months of the date of death
