Old Mutual funeral Policy – Who can You cover?

There are three different levels of plans – Care, Standard and Comprehensive. You decide on the level of cover that suits you best. You can choose to insure yourself, kids, parents, in-laws, and any other family members.

If you are divorced, you can save by only insuring your kids and not the ex as well. The level of cover depends on the plan that you select. For very plain, simple cover, the Care plan is the most affordable option. If you want some added benefits, try the Standard or Comprehensive Plans.

Benefits for the Standard and Comprehensive plans –

Both the Standard and Comprehensive Plans pay you cash-back every 36 premiums and include a benefit for terminal illness.

You can add a grocery or education benefit to your plan. This is useful if you are the main wage earner. When you pass on, your family receives a monthly payment to cover groceries or education costs. Or both depending on your level of cover, plus, the payments continue for a year.

The plans offer double benefits payable if you die in an accident. They also allow you to with-hold payment (being retrenched for example) so you don’t lose your policy. The Comprehensive plan has cover of up to R70 000 and includes a retirement benefit as well. This means that your premiums are marked as paid up when you retire.
