Summary of benefits


What you need to know

About this Vodacom Funeral Plan

This benefit is simple. In the event of the death of a covered person, we’ll pay out the cover amount to you or your chosen beneficiary or to your estate, if a beneficiary is not selected. The funeral cover will start on the date of the confirmation SMS that will be sent to you on activation of this benefit and lasts as long as you pay your weekly premium.

Your premiums will be renewable weekly. You need to pay your premium every week to stay covered. Your premium is reviewable monthly. This means that your premiums may be revised upwards or downwards depending on the claims, expense and investment experience of Vodacom. We will communicate with you should your premium level change.

The Cover Amount Table stipulates the benefit amount that will be paid out on a successful claim.

**We will cover up to 5 (five) of your own biological, legally adopted and/or step children up to the age of 21.  
A maximum of 7 (seven) claims will be paid on one policy.


Who qualifies for this policy?

•    You must have a valid South African Identity Document and must be between 18 and 60 years of age to apply for cover.
•    If you are covering your Partner under this policy, your Partner must also be between 18 and 60 years of age at the time of application for cover.
•    The product is only available for Vodacom Prepaid, UChoose and Top Up customers. 
•    If you have chosen the “Cover 4 You” option, only you will be covered under this policy and only one successful claim will be paid on the policy.
•    If you have chosen the “Cover 4 You and Your Family” option we will cover you, one Partner, and up to 5 (five) of your own biological, legally adopted and/ or step children.  A maximum of 7 (seven) successful claims will be paid on the policy.
•    If you leave the Vodacom network or migrate to a Vodacom Contract tariff plan, you and your family’s cover will come to an end.

Waiting period

•    A claim waiting period applies to every person covered under this policy, including Partner and children. 
1. There is a 3 (three) month claim waiting period for death as a result of natural causes.  However, if death is as a result of an accident (such as a car accident), we will pay out within the first 3 (three) months after cover has started.  You need to pay your premium every week for a period of 3 (three) months or more to be covered for death from natural causes (such as a heart attack or cancer).  
2. There is a 24 (twenty-four) month claim waiting period for death due to suicide.  
•    A new waiting period starts in the following cases:
1. When you increase your cover (a new waiting period only applies to the added cover).
2. When you add/change a Partner (a new waiting period only applies to the Partner).
3. When you cancel your policy or your policy lapses and you wish to sign up again at a later stage.

How this policy works

•    You will only enjoy this benefit if you have successfully registered for a Vodacom Funeral Cover 4 You policy and/or Cover 4 You and Your Family policy using your phone and you have received a confirmation SMS with your policy number. 
•    You can only register for one Cover 4 You policy and one Cover 4 You and Your Family policy. 
•    Cover is valid for a period of 1 (one) week from date of first registration and premium collected.  After one week another premium will be due, on the same day as the date of registration. It will be automatically deducted from your Vodacom Recharge account between 00:00 and 05:00.  You need to ensure that you have enough money in your Vodacom Recharge account to pay your weekly premium.
•    You will be given a 15 (fifteen) day grace period to pay a premium you may have missed.  In this case, we will automatically deduct 2 (two) weekly premiums when your next premium is due – one premium for the week you missed and one premium to cover you for the following week.  If you miss your premium for a second time, we will deduct 3 (three) weekly premiums when your next premium is due to keep your premiums up to date.  If you miss your premium for 3 (three) consecutive weeks, your policy will lapse and you will no longer be covered.  If you wish to sign up again at a later stage, please note this will be considered a new policy and new terms and conditions will apply, including new waiting periods.
•    If you cancel your policy, a premium refund will only be applicable if you have paid in advance for more than 1 (one) week of cover. The premium refund will be calculated on a pro-rata basis.
•    The policy will be cancelled upon your death.

When we will not pay

•    We will not pay out a claim for any death as a result of natural causes which occurred during the 3 (three) month waiting period.
•    We will not pay out a claim for any death as a result of deliberate involvement in an illegal act, riot, civil commotion, terrorist attack, or war.
•    During the first 24 (twenty-four) months from start of cover, we will not pay out if death is as a result of suicide.
