This is not something we want to think about, but death is a certainty for us all, and when it happens, the last thing any of us want, is to cause additional stress for the loved ones we leave behind.
We hear so many tragic stories about families that – at the saddest time in their lives – are forced to beg and borrow money to simply give their deceased loved one a dignified send-off. These days, funerals can be incredibly expensive and many people don’t have the thousands of rands at their disposal that is needed to cover a funeral. Therefore, good FUNERAL COVER is a must.
What are the costs of a funeral?
Funerals – like everything else these days – are pricey: morticians, the coffin, catering, transportation (even repatriation) of the body, vehicles, flowers, livestock, a burial plot or a cremation all cost thousands of rands.
What does a good FUNERAL PLAN cost?
Funeral plans are not always expensive. Some cost as little as R40 per month. You should look for one that suits your needs and will provide for the type of funeral you and your family would want. If you want a low-key cremation, for example, don’t sign up for the top-of-the-range plan – you don’t need it. But if your culture and your family expect a big affair with catering for the community, go for the best.
