You mean so much to your loved ones. When you pass away one day, you deserve a funeral that honours your life, but this can be costly for those you leave behind. With 1st for Women Funeral Cover, you can make sure your family can give you a proper farewell without having to take on the financial burden of paying for it themselves.
Our Funeral Insurance covers you if you pass away from accidental or natural causes, and includes repatriation within South Africa; your mortal remains may be sent to any funeral home or cemetery in the country.
Because every woman’s situation is unique, you can take out individual or family Funeral Cover, depending on your needs. If you take out a family Funeral Policy, you can cover yourself, your spouse, and up to five dependants up to the age of 21, or up to 25 if they’re full-time students. You can also extend the cover for individual family members on your family Funeral Plan if you need to.
Our Funeral Plan is a standalone product, meaning you don’t need to have any other policies with 1st for Women in order to take out our Funeral Cover.
There is no waiting period for accidental death and only a six-month waiting period for death as a result of natural causes. We also cover death as a result of suicide, with a waiting period of two years, as well as death from HIV-Aids related illnesses.
You can change your cover amount any time you like – simply give us a call to let us know and we’ll work out an updated Funeral Insurance quote for you.
There are no lengthy medical examinations to complete before you’re covered; we may only ask that you take an HIV test so we can assess your risk.
When your 1st for Women Funeral Policy pays out, your beneficiaries don’t pay any tax on the lump sum they receive.
And because we understand what a trying time losing a loved one can be for a family, the claims process is clear and we’ll help your beneficiaries every step of the way. We’ll also pay out within just two working days once we have received all necessary documentation, so your loved ones can begin the grieving process as soon as possible.
