In response to the unique challenges faced by South Africans, including load-shedding, slow post-Covid-19 economic recovery, and recurring heatwaves, Nedbank Insurance has introduced a flexible, affordable, and efficient funeral cover option – the MyCover Funeral solution. With prices starting at just R30 a month, the MyCover Funeral solution is designed to offer peace of mind, quick payouts within 24 hours, and various other benefits.

The funeral industry has been significantly impacted by the challenging economic and environmental conditions, causing delays in obtaining death certificates and a growing backlog of burials. This has made it increasingly difficult for funerals to take place within the government’s recommended timeline of four days from the date of death. Jason Lakey, Head of Life Solutions at Nedbank Insurance, believes that partnering with a trusted and reliable insurer is an effective way to ensure individuals and their loved ones receive a dignified burial despite these challenges.

The MyCover Funeral solution includes a Value for Life programme, offering a range of benefits such as free transportation of the deceased to a funeral home of choice, repatriation of the deceased to a funeral home closest to the place of burial, and legal help with funeral procedures like obtaining a death certificate.

Lakey acknowledges that the challenging economic situation and rising costs of living mean that many people cannot afford large premiums for funeral cover. However, he emphasizes the importance of finding an insurance provider that understands individual needs, treats customers as unique individuals, and offers flexible cover options at premiums that suit their budget.

The Nedbank MyCover Funeral solution aims to provide South Africans with the necessary support and financial protection during these difficult times, ensuring that the quality and dignity of their loved ones’ farewells are not compromised.
