Family Funeral Cover

Family Funeral Cover takes care of the burial expenses in the event that you, your spouse, children or parents pass away. A lump sum will be paid out for all burial-related expenses to relieve this burden from family members. Some policies have a six-month waiting period, which means that if a family member passes away within six months from the start date of the policy, they’ll only be covered for an accidental death.

How to claim for Funeral Cover

Funeral Cover generally pays out upon proof of death of a family member. You need to report the death in order to receive an official death certificate. Your Funeral Cover company will then provide you with documents to complete in order to submit the claim. Once the documents have been completed, submitted and approved, you will be paid out within 24 to 48 hours. This ensures  that you have the funds to cover the financial obligations that arise during this time.

If you are unsure which cover is the right one for you and your family, then your next step is to do research. Compare quotes on to see what different companies can offer you and find the best Funeral Cover policy for you and your family.
