“Current Funeral Cash Plan (FCP) and eFML policyholders will have an option to access the services based on their policy value at the time of claiming.  Funeral services are provided to both policyholders and non-policyholders.  “In instances where the sum assured is lower than the value of services chosen, the policyholder is allowed to top up with cash”, said Ruth Ncube, First Mutual Life Managing Director, who has been instrumental in setting up this new business. If the sum assured is greater than the value of services rendered, claimant will receive the balance in cash, she added.   A funeral policy which guarantees provision of services in the event of death will be launched soon.  Cash services are quoted based on our price list which is subject to change periodically in line with prevailing market dynamics.
