Throughout our lives, we have a will to do right by our families. That may mean sacrificing a vacation so that your daughter gets swimming lessons, or taking on a second job for an added income stream to ensure that you can provide rent and groceries for your elderly parents. There are many hidden battles that we all face to provide the best for the ones we love. But the unfortunate reality of life is that we won’t be there forever. Thinking about how our loved ones will be taken care of has hit home even harder in recent times, especially as we overcome the last few years of living with a pandemic.
With this in mind, Metropolitan has designed funeral cover that is flexible and customisable to the unique needs of you and your family. With premiums starting from as little R40 per month, you can have cover for yourself and your immediate family for up to R80 000.
At the time of bereavement, the last thing you would want is the stress and worry of arranging a funeral. That’s why Metropolitan offers a seamless and paperless claims process that can be done via WhatsApp. Based on results from the South African Customer Satisfaction Index (SA-csi) in recent years, Metropolitan is a market leader in customer satisfaction, so you can have the peace of mind that your loved ones would not have to cross administrative hurdles to lay you to rest. Valid claims are paid within 24 hours.
You can be assured of a dignified burial for you and your loved ones – whether it’s undertaker costs, service venue, catering or music, we support you every step of the way. At the end of the day, we want to celebrate a life that was well-lived and well-loved. In doing so, the Metropolitan Funeral Plan allows you to choose funeral cover that gives your family the opportunity to give you a funeral that is uniquely you.
Your funeral is an event that pays tribute to your memory and the lives you have touched. Why not allow those left behind to celebrate your life with that which has been dear to you? So whether you want a band to play your favourite tunes or a pink casket with pink champagne, the Metropolitan Funeral Plan will give you the flexibility to share your passions and memory with your family and loved ones. You can determine how you want your life celebrated.
As a policyholder, you can extend this benefit to up to 20 family members. Cover is immediate and no medical checks are required. The CashBack Benefit can be added for your unique funeral cover, rewarding you for staying on track by giving back 2 months premiums after the first 12 months. Your financial adviser is equipped to help you choose the cover that would best suit your unique needs.
The Metropolitan Funeral Plan is not just another insurance policy; it is the contentment of knowing that your family is not burdened with excessive funeral costs after your passing. It is knowing that you have made provision pre and post the unfortunate eventuality of one’s passing and that you’ve provided for your family and loved ones as best as you can.
