If you talk to relatives of a recently deceased, they will probably warn you of the huge financial burden for funeral services.
How can you protect your loved ones from the financial burden of hosting your funeral?
The most practical answer is a simple one: Funeral Insurance Coverage….. and this is what Sacos is offering!
Introducing the first Funeral Insurance Plan in Seychelles: Giving you a dignified burial when the time comes.
A funeral insurance coverage allows you to have a saving that will cover the cost of funeral expenses and burial. It is true that most of us aren’t keen to think about the end of life–especially our own. But discussing the need for and understanding end-of-life planning is important for all of us. So, what is the Sacos Funeral Insurance Plan and why do you need it?
The Sacos Funeral Insurance Plan is a whole-life, monthly-low-cost protection insurance plan that gives you cover for death as a result of an accident or natural causes. A first for both citizens and expatriates residing in Seychelles, easing the financial worries associated with funeral expenses.
There are 4 options of coverage:
- Option 1 = SCR 15,000
- Option 2= SCR 30,000
- Option 3= SCR 45,000
- Option 4 = SCR 75,000
Just think about it, losing you would already be a tragic event for your loved ones. Do not compound their stress by having it become a financial burden too. Failing to account for the cost of a funeral can leave your loved ones with a financial struggle at a time they least need it.
Why should you take it?
The Funeral Insurance Plan covers for you as an individual and can cover for your family members (your spouse, parents, and children) as well.
Payments are flexible and affordable! You can choose to pay your premiums on a monthly, quarterly, semi-annual or annual basis.
No medical examination is required.
Straightforward Claim process! The sum assured is paid within 48hrs after the passing of a member.
We want to make things as easy and as stress free as possible for you, especially in the time of mourning.
Finally, let’s say that you’ll have peace of mind knowing that your wishes will be fulfilled as you intended, especially when it comes to avoiding family arguments about who should have the final say.
Who can take this cover?
Any individual aged between 18 and 65 can take the Funeral Insurance plan. Any person above the age of 65 can only benefit from the Funeral Plan as a member of a family group. Similarly, children can only be covered up to the age of 21 as a dependent child or to a maximum of 25 years of age should they be studying on a full-time basis at a tertiary institution.
All members of the policy will be covered for the same amount based on the chosen plan. The premiums are based on the age of each member of the plan.
Any member reaching the age of 75 will stop paying, but the cover will be available until death; providing that person has contributed a minimum of 10 years premium.
