Funeral and Immediate Expenses Cover

Your passing or the passing of a loved one can lead to many unplanned expenses, but we’ve got you covered.

Losing a loved one is difficult enough, which is why Sanlam wants to help you ensure that those left behind don’t have to worry about money during an emotionally challenging time.

Our Funeral Expenses benefit will help cover general funeral costs when you or a loved one passes away. Our Immediate Expenses benefit will help cover various other costs typically incurred after your own passing or the passing of your spouse. Both benefits offer a lump sum payout and we aim to pay all valid claims within 48 hours of receiving the necessary documentation. For the Immediate Expenses benefit, the documentation may include a medical certificate to verify the health information that was provided when applying for the benefit.

Funeral Expenses Benefit

No one wants to think about passing away. But, what would happen if you or a loved one were to pass away unexpectedly? Who will pay for the funeral, travelling and accommodation costs, and food during the ceremony?

Funerals in South Africa can cost anything from R6 000 to R50 000, and during such troubling times you or your family shouldn’t have to worry about the financial aspect. With Sanlam’s Funeral Expenses benefit, you could receive up to R60 000 cover with a lump sum payout, which can be used to pay for funeral expenses such as:

Burial or cremation costs
Flowers
Food and drinks
Headstones or memorial stones
Graveside tents
Programmes for the service
The preparation, storage and transport of the body
Registration of death
Travel costs

Sanlam’s Funeral Expenses benefit can be added to new or existing plans. Speak to your financial planner about getting cover for yourself, your immediate family or extended family, or have a look at the video below for more information.

Immediate Expenses Benefit

Who will be responsible for the immediate expenses of your dependants or the insurance of your estate assets should you suddenly pass away? Sanlam’s Immediate Expenses benefit aims to assist with costs incurred soon after you or your spouse passes away.

The benefit pays a lump sum of up to R150 000 to help pay for expenses like:

  • Insurance of your estate assets
  • Bond or mortgage instalments
  • Vehicle and home insurance premiums
  • Credit cards and personal loans
  • Municipal accounts
  • Day-to-day living expenses for dependants
You can get cover for yourself and your spouse under one plan. Speak to your financial planner about the best cover for your needs.
