What it is Funeral Cover?

Funeral insurance is designed to pay for your funeral and other once-off final expenses so that the people you leave behind aren't left with huge bills. You can also insure the lives of up to 20 family members, so you can focus on giving your loved ones a decent funeral when they pass on without worrying about your cash flow.

We usually pay out within 48 hours of your claim, so you have ready cash to pay for the immediate costs of a death.

When will the funeral cover start?

You and your loved ones under this Sanlam funeral policy will be covered from the date your first premium is paid. Your membership certificate with all personal details of covered persons, will be sent to the email address you gave during the online purchase process. Getting Sanlam insurance is always a pain free experience. You can choose the right plan for you and your loved ones. Having a big family funeral has always been the tradition in South Africa.

Will my monthly premiums increase over the years?

Who can get Funeral Cover?

As the main member, you can get Funeral Cover for yourself if you're aged 18-60 and have a South African ID number. Your spouse can be 16-85, and all other family members 0-85. (Remember, these age limits are for the start of the policy - we’ll continue to cover people as they age for as long as the policy is active.)

All family members you insure on your Family Funeral plan must live permanently in South Africa. If they are citizens of South Africa, Lesotho or Namibia, they are covered no matter where in the world they die. If they are of any other nationality, they are covered for death in South Africa only.
