Why would a single person, especially a young one, even think of getting any funeral cover? Well, singles in South Africa are seeing that having funeral insurance single notwithstanding is as important as having an education.

At Martins funerals, they have cover for individuals between the ages of 16 and 100.


Funeral Insurance Single – Reasons to take out Funeral Cover even if you’re Single


  • There will be money available to your family, to enable them to plan and pay for your funeral.
  • Funerals are expensive, and if you pass away while you are still young, the cost of a funeral on top of the shock of an unexpected death will put extra pressure on an already traumatised family.
  • If you’re young and single, your monthly premiums are very low and affordable. Impressively, the premiums can be as little as Funeral Insurance SingleR25 for R5 000 of cover, which will not mess up your budget.
  • You can use the Funeral Plan payout for a whole range of various funeral costs.
  • The family will get free advice and assistance in planning your funeral.
  • Martins will pay out a lump sum within 48 hours, which will be in time to plan and pay for the arrangements and funeral.
  • Perhaps one of the biggest advantages of the funeral cover paid out to your family will be the assurance and peace of mind they get when they realise they can afford the very best send-off for you. So they will not need to take out a loan, or borrow from others.
  • Should you die in an accident, then your cover doubles.
  • If you are single, but under 100 years of age, then Martins will still have a funeral plan to suit you.
  • No medical examination is necessary.
  • Also there are no exclusions for HIV/Aids.
