Metropolitan Extended Family Funeral Plan
October 2, 2016
A Metropolitan extended Family funeral plan makes more and more sense today, especially as funeral costs escalate.
South Africans can only benefit from funeral cover, as they can be sure of burying their loved ones with dignity.
Metropolitan has an Extended Family Funeral Plan with various options that meet the unique needs of your family.
Having a funeral plan means that you don’t place a financial burden on your family. Particularly at a time when they are already feeling the emotional pressure of loss.
For a small monthly premium, if you or someone in your family dies, you will receive a payout to cover expenses.
More about the Metropolitan extended Family funeral plan
Metropolitan, or Metlife, was born in 1897 and is a financial service provider to as many as 12 million people. Metropolitan serves clients all across South Africa, as well as in Botswana, Nigeria and Kenya, plus other countries.
The Metropolitan Funeral Plan is one of the most cost-effective plans available. For a premium of only R36 per month you receive cover of up to R30 000; however, there are many more options available to suit both you and your family members, with several extra benefits.
Metropolitan extended Family funeral Plan – best for large families
A great plan if you have a large family that you would like to include in the policy. If you die, your beneficiaries will receive as much as R50 000 to pay for your funeral. What’s more, if your spouse dies, you will also receive that amount.
Children under age 21, covered by your policy, receive between R1 250 and R25 000 worth of insurance. Children still studying, remain insured until they are 25 years old.
This insurance includes children that are stillborn. If you or any family members insured by the policy die as a result of an accident, then you receive double your cover – up to R30 000.
The Extended Family Funeral Plan
Usually, the breadwinner in the household doesn’t only support their immediate family, but also brothers, sisters, uncles and aunts. If someone in the family dies, the salary earner will most likely have to pay for the funeral too.
In this case, members can take out the Extended Family Funeral Plan. You receive cover to assist with funeral costs for your parents, grandparents, parents-in-law, and cousins – anyone from your extended family.
Depending on the amount you contribute to your premium, you could receive as much as a R30 000 payout if one of these family members die. You are allowed to include nine extended family members under this plan, as long as they are less than 85 years old.
