Going out in style can bury your family in funeral expenses

Cape Town - What kind of funeral would you like? Most people would like a funeral that is a reflection of the life they lived. Respecting the deceased’s wishes is top priority for those left behind but the reality is that these days funerals can be quite expensive.

A basic funeral can cost about R15 000 while a more lavish funeral can cost up to R50 000. Raising that kind of money within one week can be stressful for loved ones plus the added responsibility of arranging a funeral while mourning.

Family and loved ones end up covering all the costs of the funeral and other mourning events before or after the funeral. Some end up incurring debt just to cover all the funeral expenses while juggling the financial pressure of maintaining their lifestyle. The financial effects of a funeral can be felt long after the event has taken place.

Allow your family to mourn a loss while celebrating a life that once was with financial support by securing funeral cover they can rely on.
