KGA Life

History of KGA life

We are a company from humble beginnings and we will gladly share our story with you. KGA was established in May 1986. We were a small group of hardworking people managing pension funds and providing financial services to these members.

After successfully creating a funeral scheme for members of a church institution, we were approached by a leading insurer to administer their group funeral scheme. This resulted in the establishment of the first funeral insurance administrator in South Africa.

The years of valuable experience and the ability to settle claims within 24 hours gave us an advantage in the market which led us to register as an insurance company on 1 January 1999.

Product offering

KGA Life offers funeral cover for individuals and groups. Our funeral plans are designed for individuals and families who need a basic and affordable funeral policy providing cover of up to R30 000. You can cover yourself, your spouse and up to 7 children on any one of our funeral plans.

Additionally, our very popular cash-back plans pay R 1000 cash back to our policyholders each year.

What's more, we have a range of additional, add-on benefits that can be added to your funeral plan based on your unique needs. The KGA Airtime Benefit automatically loads airtime onto a beneficiary's cellphone when a loved one passes away, easing the burden of making the necessary arrangements. The KGA Grocery Benefit pays out cash for groceries to cater for your family and loved ones at their most difficult time.
