Funeral Cover

Nothing can really prepare one for the immense sense of loss and trauma when a loved one dies. Yet important and potentially costly decisions about the pending funerals have to be taken then; when those who are left behind are least equipped to do that. This becomes even more traumatic when the funds are not available to afford a decent burial.

The Cura Funeral Benefit Plan ensures that funeral costs do not become a burden to the family during times of loss. We bring you peace of mind with funeral cover for the whole family.

What are the benefits covered by this policy?
