1Lifedirect Funeral Cover
Despite their name, 1Lifedirect does provide funeral cover. If you are between the ages of 18 and 65, and your children are younger than 21 (or 25 and full-time students), and your parents are under the age of 75 years, then you qualify for 1Lifefuneral. Obviously you only have to meet all those criteria if you want your children and parents added to the policy.
The cover ranges from R5000 to R45 000 and pays out in the event of the insured’s death to cover his or her funeral costs. This includes catering costs, and is paid out within 48 hours after a legitimate claim is submitted. The policy includes the following benefits:
1Lifefuneral premium waiver
If more than one family member is on the policy, then it will include a premium waiver. This means that if the principal member on the policy dies, the other members will still be covered for up to two years without having to pay any additional premiums.
1Lifefuneral grocery benefit
Given that life insurance takes months (and sometimes years) to pay out, 1Lifedirect funeral cover provides a grocery benefit to surviving members. Should the principal member die, the cover will not only pay out for the funeral but an additional R1 000 per month for up to six months to cover groceries.
1Lifefuneral repatriation benefit
While repatriation usually refers to bringing someone back to their own country from a foreign state, 1Lifedirect’s funeral cover repatriates insureds from the place of death to the place of burial. This cost is limited to R2 000.
1Lifefuneral extended family benefit
Other members of the family, such as spouses, children, parents and other extended members can be added to the policy, but this is limited to only five children, and 10 other family members. There is an additional premium per member of the family added to the policy.
1Lifefuneral accidental death
The cover pays out for natural death and accidental death, although there is a 12 month waiting period for claims of natural death from the commencement of the policy. Accidental death cover begins immediately.
