Family Funeral Nomination & Application form

Important Notes: This form consolidates all the various types of funeral insurance that Sanlam is on risk for. All references to insured will mean either employee or fund member.

This form must be completed by you, the insured, when:

  • The group risk insurance commences in terms of the policy.
  • There is a change in the information regarding your nomination of beneficiaries, as indicated in Section B. The Prudential Authority (PA), through the Insurance Act 18 of 2017 (the Act), also requires group policy benefits (e.g., unapproved benefits provided under a group insurance scheme) to be paid only to a “beneficiary”, as defined in the Act. Any benefit payment will therefore be strictly according to a valid beneficiary nomination form completed by the insured/employee; in the absence of a nomination form, the benefit will be paid to the deceased employee’s estate.
  • There is a change in the information regarding your family members, as indicated in Section C. Only immediate family members stated by you in Section C of this application will be covered and/or entitled to a benefit.
