Individuals>Your Life>Funeral Cover
Funerals are expensive and these costs are seldom considered until the time comes to organise one. And that is probably the worst time of all. Did you know a funeral could cost anything from R7,000 to R30,000? A death in the family is always hard for those left behind, so don’t add more hardship and pain by not planning for the costs of your funeral. Take away those costs from your loved ones with a funeral plan for less than R35 per month.
You may think that there is no need as there will be enough money in the estate to cover the funeral costs. The problem though is that access to your estate is suspended until the estate is wound up. That means loved ones end up paying the costs upfront. Coffins, flowers and transport for those who will want to attend don't come cheap. Nor does food, drinks and accommodation.
There are three options to consider:
- Funeral cover for yourself;
- Funeral cover for yourself and your immediate family;
- Funeral cover for your extended family, which could include your mother, father, brother, sister, aunt or uncle and even your in-laws.
The money will be in your loved one's bank account within 48 hours.
