The Eyethu Funeral Plan provides affordable funeral cover to finance funeral expenses in the unfortunate event of death. Every person deserves a dignified funeral ceremony, and to have the peace-of-mind afforded by knowing that their family or loved ones left behind will be assisted by a trusted financial partner when needed the most.
With our Eyethu Funeral Plan, policyholders can cover themselves, their spouse(s) or partner, their children, parents and extended family members. We have refined our definition of family to allow for families headed by children or grandparents, to accommodate this common occurrence in African communities.
We also cater for cultures that observe the practice of polygamy, and allow for more than one spouse to be covered. If a spouse becomes widowed, the deceased spouse's brother may opt to continue as the main member and cover may continue at the same or increased level as prior to the passing of the deceased spouse. This is to recognise the African custom that the brother of a deceased widow takes responsibility of his deceased brothers family.
The Eyethu Funeral Plan is flexible and allows policyholders to choose cover for their specific needs and to change their cover as their needs change over time. The Eyethu Funeral Plan offers additional benefits in addition to the basic funeral cover, as summarised below, such as a Cash Back benefit after every 24 premiums we receive.
The following core benefits may be selected by policyholder:
