Funeral Coverage from Clientele Life

The Funeral Dignity Plan provides a lump sum payout when the primary member, or a dependent on the plan, dies. So the funeral coverage money is for any funeral expenses or other costs that come up.

The Funeral Dignity Plan pays out in 24 hours, as long as all the correct documents are submitted. And it also offers a Double Accident Benefit, which is a benefit payout if the insured dies accidentally; the beneficiaries get double the funeral coverage amount (this benefit is only for the principal member).

Clientele Life’s Funeral Coverage with Dignity Plan has many benefits, including:

  • Cover for only R99/month.
  • Funeral coverage up to R110 000 for your whole family for the cost of just R2/day, per person.
  • Cover for as many as 13 people, under one plan.
  • Airtime to the value of R200, with your claim.
  • A grocery benefit.
  • An unveiling benefit.
  • Enhanced benefits, such as a 24hr helpline where consultants will help you arrange the funeral; counselling; discounts at different funeral service providers; and repatriation services.
