No-one would want to leave their family and friends in a financial mess would they? That’s why Diaspora Funeral Cash Plan provides insurance that has been designed to help you protect your family from the financial burden of your funeral, body repatriation and other unexpected costs, if you were to unexpectedly pass away.
The cost of a funeral and/or body repatriation to home country runs in several thousand dollars on average. Funeral Cash Plan is so important because it will save your bereaved family the burden and embarrassment of begging for help during your funeral. The cash plan guarantees you an honourable and dignified sending off as your loved ones can celebrate your life without worrying about money.
The main costs that the Diasporas face in the event of death include:
1. Body Repatriation,
2. Travel costs for people (family or friends) accompanying the body back home,
3. Cost of coffin or casket,
4. Funeral cost in diaspora, and
5. Funeral cost in home country.
Funeral and body repatriation costs from Southern African countries are around US$2, 500, from United Kingdom around US$10, 000, from Australia/New Zealand around US$15, 000 and USA or Canada around US$20, 000. If you don’t have a funeral plan, this is money your family will probably have to pay out of their pocket in the event of your death…money your family may not have on hand.
