Many of us don’t know how expensive funeral can be. If you have not arranged a funeral recently, you will be surprised to find that funerals have become extremely costly. Even if you water it down to the basics and can still cost you a tremendous amount of money. We often see employees struggle financially when a coworker passes away. Sometimes the workers stand together and try to contribute towards the funeral. Other times the employer will have to step in to help. Many respected employees don’t have enough funds available to arrange a decent funeral. Some employees may even be the sole breadwinner for their family. Not having money to lay a loved one to rest can be devastating.
Getting employee funeral cover can relief tons of pressure from employees and their families. It does not have to be to most expensive action; the employer can contribute a percentage or the full amount. Employers can even decide if they want their employees to add family members to the funeral plan or not.
There is a couple of options available. Most providers in South Africa have flexible options. The Employer does not have to carry the cost alone. The premium can be split amongst the worker and employer. Employee Funeral Insurance can also be offered as a company benefit in full. It all comes down to your needs.
