Diaspora Funeral Cash Plan is a first in the world, a need driven funeral cash plan targeted at the diaspora communities.
With a Diaspora Funeral Cash Plan, insured by Zimnat Life Assurance, you can rest assured that your family at least won't have to worry about funeral and/or repatriation bills.
The world has become a global village with many people belonging to more than one society and living across the world, far away from their home countries. In the case of Zimbabwe, it is generally accepted that there are an estimated 3 to 4 million Zimbabwean Diasporas. For cultural, social, family and emotional reasons many Diasporas naturally prefer their country of origin to be their final resting place. This cultural connection has for many years created a financial burden to bereaved diaspora families as they suddenly have to raise a lot of cash to meet funeral and/or repatriation bills.
Your bereaving family and friends could need to find as much as $20 000 without funeral insurance and in many cases, these costs are payable upfront.
This unplanned burden has in many cases resulted in embarrassingly reducing bereaving families to beggars by literally begging for public help. Public plea messages like the one below have become far too common in diaspora communities:
"…I AM BEGGING YOU MY FRIENDS, FAMILY AND FRIENDS OF ZIMBABWE TO FIND IT IN YOUR HEART TO HELP RAISE US$XXXX FOR MR XXXXX XXXXXX'S BODY TO BE REPATRIATED TO ZIMBABWE.ZIM ARTISTS, ORGISATIONS, MEDIA WE NEED YOU! JUST DEPOSIT £1 OR $1USD EACH ……"
Would anyone be proud to the subject of such a desperate appeal by their bereaving family?
Your unexpected death would have a devastating affect on your family. They'd be left hurt and confused as they struggle to make sense of their loss. In their darkest hour, would you burden them with your funeral bill? Money worries are the last thing they need at this time.
A Funeral Cash Plan can provide a payout when your family needs it most generally within 24 hours of receiving your completed claim form and proof of death. Applying is simple, quick, and affordable with acceptance guaranteed to diaspora Zimbabweans and their families aged 18-70. In addition to covering yourself and your family in diaspora you can also cover your parents and/or in-laws in Zimbabwe.
