Liberty Funeral Benefits 

The Liberty Funeral Plus plan has 6 benefits to choose from where a policyholder can add one or more benefits to his/her funeral cover. Benefits include:

Tombstone Benefit

If the principal life assured or his or her spouse is covered by this benefit, the tombstone benefit provides a lump sum to the beneficiary. The benefit gives the recipient a lump sum of R10,000.00 per life assured to buy a tombstone for the life assured or his or her spouse. 

Because the Tombstone benefit has an age restriction, not everyone is eligible for it. Only people between the ages of 18 and 64 are eligible for the benefit. The main life assured is likewise subject to the age limit.

Double Accident Benefit

This benefit pays out twice as much as the chosen coverage. Only the principal life assured and his or her spouse are eligible for the double accident benefit. The spouse, on the other hand, must be chosen by the principal life assured and added to the double accident protection.

To be eligible for the double accident benefit, you must have a maximum funeral cover of R50,000.00. The double accident benefit pays a maximum of R100,000.00 with a maximum cover of R50,000.00.

Those between the ages of 18 and 65 are eligible for a double accident benefit. As a result, anyone over the age of 66 is ineligible for this benefit. Therefore, those who are 66 years of age or older cannot qualify for this benefit. The double accident benefit pays out if the assured dies in an accident which is sudden, violent, external, or unexpected and that death should happen within 14 days from the day of the accident event. 

Paid Up benefit

The paid-up benefit ensures that when the policyholder reaches the age of 65  he/she will have their premiums stopped. The funeral plan will still be active. The policyholder won’t be able to add new members to the policy once they reach 65 years. 

Inkomo cash benefit 

When making a claim the Inkomo cash benefit will also make a lump sum payment to the beneficiaries at the same time with the funeral cover. R10,000.00 will be paid per life assured so that a cow can be bought.
