GROUP FUNERAL EXPENSES INSURANCE POLICY
Group Funeral Expenses Insurance Policy is a policy designed for organisations to cover funeral costs where an organisation loses its member or their close relatives.
It is a yearly renewable policy taken out by the employer meaning that the employer bears the cost of premium for the benefit of its employees.
However, the organisation also benefits through the increase in employee retention, good corporate image and the reduced financial stress/ risk to the organisation by completely eliminating salary advance requests and other costs involved in covering funeral costs on behalf of employees.
Through the Group Funeral Expenses Insurance Policy (GFEIP), Madison Life will take the financial obligation of meeting the cost of providing a decent funeral for the insured person(s).
