The best Funeral cover benefits

Funeral Benefits - Members get a lump sum paid out to them in the event of death, which would be paid to their beneficiary, to use in regards to arranging and paying for funeral arrangements.

Premium Holiday - They give their members a little leeway, so if they want to take one month off after a year of paying premiums, they can skip a month. This can occur 6 times over the life term of their funeral cover policy.

Children Benefit - Members can cover their children under one funeral cover policy, and they will be covered for life, no matter how old they are.

Continuation Benefit -  When the main member of the policy dies, the funeral plan for the remaining beneficiaries will be paid in full, and will continue for the duration of the term for the members on the plan.
