Find out more about our funeral cover

In a previous blog article – “Iemas celebrating 80 years”, a member shared a short heart-warming message that resonated with many.

The message stated: “Forward ever backward never. You have been a father and a mother to me, a shoulder to cry on when life is hard. You buried my parents and I was proud, you made me a responsible man. Happy birthday and see many more for generations to come. Halala Iemas Halala. Motse Aaron Machona”

At the heart of Iemas’ co-operative model is the principle that professionalism and ethical conduct carries more weight than monetary value and where the focus is primarily on the member.

In the current economic climate, the cost of a funeral can far surpass the cover offered from one funeral policy. Many times, members and their families are faced with burying family members just months apart, resulting in members being financially crippled for many months.

“You buried my parents and I was proud” – Every member would like to give their loved ones a dignified funeral. With a policy such as the Iemas’ Comprehensive Funeral Cover, members can achieve this.

The plan provides the following:

  • Up to R100 000 cover for the main member and spouse
  • Up to R50 000 cover for up to four (4) parents and eight (8) children
  • Up to R30 000 cover for up to four (4) extended family members

That brings the total to 22 family and extended family members covered under one policy.

The plan also offers double accident cover for the main member and spouse of up to R200 000 for accidental death. Cover is immediate for accidental death.

The Iemas Comprehensive Funeral Cover is great for small or large families. However, if you require a different funeral policy, we will endeavour to find another product suitable for you.  Please contact Iemas Insurance Brokers on:
