Eyethu Funeral Plan

  1. Description

The Eyethu Funeral Plan provides affordable funeral cover to finance funeral expenses in the unfortunate event of death. Every person deserves a dignified funeral ceremony, and to have the peace-of-mind afforded by knowing that their family or loved ones left behind will be assisted by a trusted financial partner when needed the most.

With our Eyethu Funeral Plan, Policyholders can cover themselves, their Spouse(s) or partner, their Children, parents and extended family members. We have refined our definition of family to allow for families headed by children or grandparents, to accommodate this common occurrence in African communities.

We also cater for cultures that observe the practice of polygamy, and allow for more than one Spouse to be covered. If a Spouse becomes widowed, the deceased’ Spouse’s brother may opt to continue as the main member and cover may continue at the same or increased level as prior to the passing of the deceased Spouse. This is to recognise the African custom that the brother of a deceased widow takes responsibility of his deceased brother’s family.

The Eyethu Funeral Plan is flexible and allows Policyholders to choose cover for their specific needs and to change their cover as their needs change over time. The Eyethu Funeral Plan offers additional benefits in addition to the basic funeral cover, as summarised below, such as a Cash Back benefit after every 24 premiums we receive.

Benefits payable

In return for payment of a monthly Premium, the Benefit, as stipulated on the Policy Schedule, will be paid based on the following conditions:

  • The Claim Event occurs within the Period of Insurance;

  • The Insured in respect of whom the Claim is made is named in the Policy Schedule, with the exception of a stillborn Child;

  • The Claim Event giving rise to a Claim is covered under the terms of this Policy;

  • A Natural Death occurs after the expiry of the Waiting Period where applicable;

  • The information given at the time of application, and in the course of a Claim, is materially true and accurate;

  • You provide Us with all the relevant documents and information that We may require; and

  • The Claim is reported within the prescribed periods.

 

The Benefit payable will be based on the following:

The Eyethu Funeral Plan provides for the payment of cash within 48 hours of Us receiving all the documents and information required to approve the Claim, to cover funeral expenses in the event of the Death of an Insured covered under the policy.

The following core benefits may be selected by Policyholder:

Life Assured Benefit - this is funeral cover for the Policyholder.

Spouse Benefit - this is funeral cover for a Spouse of the Policyholder and may at any one time cover up to a maximum of 5 spouses only, where a Spouse is defined under common law, customary law or a life partner arrangement. Proof of such relationship will be required at Claim stage.

Parent Benefit - this is funeral cover for a Parent of the Policyholder and it can include a biological parent, step-parent or parent-in-law. Where the Policyholder is an adopted child, Parent can also include the person(s) who legally adopted the Policyholder.  

Child Benefit - this is funeral cover for a Child of the Policyholder and it can include the biological children, adopted children, step children, and any other financially dependent children for whom the Policyholder is financially responsible. For child-headed households (i.e. where the Policyholder is aged 21 or less), the siblings of the Policyholder may be regarded as Children. If two of the Children covered by the policy are aged between 1 year and 14 years, they are covered for free. A stillborn Child is included under this definition provided that there has been at least twenty six weeks of intra-uterine existence, the Child showed no signs of life after complete birth, and the life of the foetus child has not been intentionally terminated.

Abazala Benefit - this is funeral cover for an extended family member of the Policyholder. A maximum number of 20 extended family members  may at any one time be covered under the policy. An extended family member is defined as one of the descendants, their Spouses or their legally adopted Children, of the great grandparents of the Policyholder.

No Claim will be payable under any Benefit unless that person is expressly named in the Policy Schedule, with the exception of a Claim in respect of a stillborn Child under the Child Benefit.

Benefit changes allowed:

  • Benefits may be increased at any time, subject to the full Waiting Period for a Claim arising from Natural Death applying in respect of the increase amounts. The premium would be adjusted up accordingly.

  • Benefits may be reduced at any time, and the premium would be adjusted down accordingly.  Any decrease in cover will have no impact at all on the Waiting Period.

 

 

Additional benefits included are:

  • Grocery Benefit – This provides monthly payments and/or shopping vouchers to the value of R150 per month for 6 months when the Policyholder or Spouse dies, to be used for grocery expenses.

  • Education Benefits – This provides monthly payments of R200 for 12 months when the Policyholder or Spouse dies, to be used for education expenses.

  • Airtime Benefit – This provides a one-off R250 airtime voucher when any Insured person dies, to help with making funeral arrangements.

  • Premium Break - This benefit recognises that with regularly paid policies, there may be months where it may be difficult to meet premium commitments due to unforeseen financial circumstances (e.g. retrenchment, ending of employment contracts, etc.) and allows the Policyholder to subsidise 'bad' months with 'good' months in terms of affordability. The Policyholder may miss up to 9 premiums over the life of the policy, without the plan lapsing, subject to the following conditions:

  • This Break only applies if premiums are paid monthy.

  • Only 3 consecutive premiums may be missed at a time without the policy lapsing.

  • Up to 9 non-consecutive premiums may be missed over the life of the policy in total.

  • The funeral cover core benefits during a Premium Break are reduced to 50% in the second month of the Premium Break and to 25% in the third month of the Premium Break.

  • If more than 3 consecutive premiums are missed, the policy will lapse automatically with immediate effect and all cover will cease.

  • At the end of a Premium Break the Policyholder will pay the outstanding, missed premiums to bring the policy fully paid up-to-date.  Failure to do so will result in the policy lapsing and cover ceasing.   

  • Cash Back Benefit - Cash back of 50% of the quantum of premiums actually paid for every 24 consecutive monthly premiums we receive. Any Premium Breaks will reduce to zero the number of consecutive monthly premiums for the purpose of determining the 24 months.

  • Legacy Benefit - In addition, if the Policyholder dies and his biological brother customarily assumes his responsibilities with respect to providing for the Policyholder’s family, the cover for the deceased’s Spouses, Children and extended family may continue on condition that the deceased’s brother continues with the original premium payments by becoming the new Policyholder. The benefits may not be changed in this case, and the only increases allowed will be those specified in the original contract, if any.

 

  • Abadala Paid-Up Benefit - When the Policyholder turns 65, premiums may be stopped but the cover will continue, subject to the following conditions:

    • At least 10 years’ worth of premiums must have been received for the Policyholder to be eligible for the Abadala Paid-Up Benefit.

    • No premium breaks or missed premiums must have occurred on the policy

Waiting Period

The period of 180 days in which no Benefit or only a reduced percentage of the Benefit is provided, resulting in no Claim or only a limited benefit being payable, for Claims arising from Natural Death.

The Waiting Period in respect of any Insured covered by the policy commences on the date that the relevant Policyholder, Spouse, Parent, Child or extended family member becomes covered under the policy and is named in the Policy Schedule.

 

The amount of the Benefit that may be payable depends on the number of calendar days elapsed since the date on which the person became covered under the policy.  Please refer to the table below.  

 

The cover provided in accordance with the phased-in approach described above, is as follows:

 

Calendar Days                        % of the Benefit

since start of cover

for that person     

0 - 90                                           0%

91 - 120                                     10%

121 - 150                                   20%

151 - 180                                   30%

181+                                         100%

 

Once the Waiting Period has passed, a Claim arising from Natural Death will be covered in full. There is no Waiting Period in respect of Claims arising from Accidental Death.

If any Insured listed on the Policy Schedule was covered under a similar policy with another insurer in the 31 days before the start of this policy, the Waiting Period for such person will be waived provided this is a replacement policy and where such waiting period on the alternate policy has fully expired.  Proof of alternate cover will be required in order for the Waiting Period for such person to be waived.

 

  2. Underwriting

No initial underwriting will be performed. The intermediary will however collate any information relating to customers for the purposes of analysing its experience and updating any assumptions made.

 

 

  3. Claims

Claim assessments will be performed to validate claims and reduce the risk of fraud. Claimants will be required to provide evidence satisfactory to the Underwriting Manager and Guardrisk of identification, of death certificates and the circumstances of death or stillborn Child, and of family ties, financial dependence and other relationships where relevant to a Claim.  If a Natural Death of any Insured occurs within the applicable Waiting Period, proof of previous cover for such person on a similar policy with another insurer in the 31  days prior to the start of this policy will be required for the Waiting Period to be waived and for the  Claim to be deemed valid.  If no such proof is provided, the Waiting Period will be applied and the Claim will not be valid. Proof submitted will be verified against central databases, such as that of the Department of Home Affairs.  We reserve the right to request any additional information or original claims documentation in order to verify or process the Claim, which must be provided at the expense of the Policyholder, Claimant or Nominated Beneficiary.

All claims payments will be made to the Nominated Beneficiary.  As the benefit is to assist with funeral arrangements, the beneficiary nomination must be a person who is not a minor and who will either be responsible for the funeral arrangements or who will assist with the funeral arrangements.  When claiming for a Dependent, the Policyholder is the Beneficiary and will be paid. When claiming because the Policyholder has died, the Nominated Beneficiary will be paid.  If there is no listed Beneficiary, the person claiming will be paid provided such person has paid for the funeral.

  4. Correspondence

The normal mode of communicating with customers will be email. A call centre is available to assist clients with queries, enquiries and any escalations. We may also require to speak with Claimants in the course of a Claim. Automated emails will be sent to customers during the application process online, including an email of the customer’s policy contract and supporting documents. A paper copy may be posted to customers, if preferred or upon request.

Annual Benefit Update letters will be sent to customers 3 months preceding the automatic update of benefits, as specified in the contract. Annual Benefit Statements will be sent to customers annually.

At Claims stage, the appropriate claim forms will be sent to customers.
