Cooling Off Period

The ‘cooling off period’ is 10 business days, or the equivalent of 14 days as these may include weekends or public holidays. During this period, you will not have to make payments, and can simply cancel if you wish.

 

Funeral and Related Expenses 

We cover all funeral and related expenses; for example: Funeral Director’s accounts as well as Headstones and plaques, clothing for the family, travelling and accommodation costs, and wake costs.    The benefits can also be used to repatriate the body of a customer who has died in another state, and his family want him to be buried at home.

Claim

When a named person (nominee) passes away, a claim is made by calling our offices.  One of our customer service team will then help and guide the caller through the process, making it as easy and as painless as possible.
