Free repatriation of mortal remains

Free repatriation of mortal remains

We will ensure that your loved ones are not faced with a major financial burden should you pass away while you are in South Africa for your studies. A maximum benefit of R60 000 per repatriation applies.

Repatriation is arranged when the deceased's body is more than 100km from their place of residence, within South Africa and neighbouring countries, eg Lesotho, Namibia, Mozambique etc, including international repatriations.

All the arrangements to transport mortal remains as requested by the family are managed and special care is taken to consider particular customs and beliefs.

The benefit also includes assistance with the necessary documentation and co-ordination with the authorities to transport the deceased's mortal remains back to the normal area of residence.

*Please note this is not a funeral cover or plan and the emphasis of this benefit is on covering the repatriation cost.
