Get Funeral cover

There’s nothing worse than having a loved one pass away and during such a difficult time, having to worry about money makes things worse. Not only do the people left behind have to worry about their own living costs but they now have to put together enough money for a funeral.

With a funeral plan, if you or a family member pass away, you can rest assured that there will be enough to cover the funeral. In the event that the death was accidental, there will be a double benefit payment which will help the family even more. The lump-sum payout helps you cover things like the purchase of a burial plot, funeral parlour expenses, catering, flowers, transport, and more. It will also help pay for other costs such as groceries and school fees.

If you’re the main breadwinner in the family and worry about what would happen if you or your spouse were to pass away, securing your family financially with a solid funeral cover policy is a must.

  • You get covered for life as long as you take out the policy between 18 and 65 and you continue to pay your premiums.
  • The death benefit is Tax-free.
  • If you’re an Ackermans cardholder you can pay your premiums using your account.
