Funeral Cashback Benefit

FREE FUNERAL BENEFIT FOR POLICY HOLDERS

After a recent enquiry from a client it became apparent that some of our representatives and
staff are not specific when they explain the free funeral benefit.

It is very important that our policyholders know and understand the free funeral benefit and that
we can explain what the free funeral benefit consists of in simple terms to avoid misunderstandings.

The free funeral benefit includes the following:

Assistance with the completion of all official documents.

and this amount is amended annually in accordance with the inflation rate. Over and above the
free basic funeral, we also offer free transportation of the deceased within the borders of South Africa.
