Safrican – Now a Funeral Cover Everyone Can Afford

Safrican knows that every heartbeat means life. But this can change in an instant. A penniless funeral can leave you grieving and financially bereft.

Whether you cremate or bury the deceased makes no difference to finances. In either case, you have to consider a host of costs.

Safrican knows that this is the time when you need help with coping financially. And they know all the extra costs you’ll face if someone you love dies with no funeral plans in place.

With a funeral plan such as Safrican in place, the insurance company pays your funeral expenses. That takes away a lot of the pressure and stress of planning a funeral. Of course, the cost of a funeral will depend on the type of funeral you want, but the cost of the ceremony, the casket, food, the hiring of a marquee may all add up, particularly when hundreds of people are expected to attend.
