The Benefit!

The Family Funeral Cover is a non-compulsory option that is again available to all Members of the Scheme for a limited period ending 30 September 2022.

It forms part of the Scheme’s benefit offerings to all its Members.

The purpose of this cover is to assist families with funeral benefits when the member, his or her legal spouse or any of his or her eligible children should pass away.

In such an event, the following funeral benefits will become payable:

Immediate Family Members Only
Lives Covered Benefit Amount
Member R40 000.00
Spouse R40 000.00
Child aged 14 to 21 years R40 000.00
Child aged 6 to 13 years R20 000.00
Stillborn to child aged 5 years R10 000.00

Take note that a lump sum is paid in the event of the death of a member, his or her spouse or any of the main member’s eligible children to cover the cost associated with a funeral.

An unlimited number of children of a member will enjoy the cover, but only 1 spouse will be covered in the event of death.

The cover cannot be extended to extended family members.
