Have you ever paused to imagine your bereaved family and friends embarrassingly begging for help with your funeral and/or body repatriation costs?
Obviously this is something you wouldn't want to burden your loved ones with especially when it's emotionally a very hard time for them. A funeral cash plan provides immediate cash to your family to help cover the cost of your funeral and other unexpected expenses that would mean one less thing for them to worry about at an emotional and difficult time.
You can take a Single Plan or a Family Plan on which you can add children up to age of 23, parents and or parents-in-law or any other relative as long as they are under 75.
Group Cover is available to Burial Sociaties, Churches, Associations and the like. The minimum requirement is that there must be 10 members and the Group should be constituted or operational before applying. Burial Societies are actaull better of converting to Group Cover where the risk of paying out lumpsums is transferred to the insurer.
