Our Why

Even though we know that taking an eternal rest is inevitable, we will never know when exactly it is going to happen and how. One thing is certain though; we can prepare for the accompanying costs of a funeral.  With the right funeral cover it is possible to have a dignified send off for ourselves and our loved ones.

How

You pay a monthly premium so that when there is bereavement, a stated sum of money will be paid out to your family. This money covers funeral expenses so that loved ones do not have to be faced with financial challenges during this difficult time.

Flexibility

Bataung Life offers a varying range of benefits, depending on what you can afford. We customise a plan that will suit your pocket. Funerals have become costly; it is therefore very important to plan in advance by considering our options to see which one best caters for you and your family.

Making the choice

We all want the best funeral cover available in the market. Every individual makes a choice based on what is best for them. The funeral cover you want is completely dependent on your unique needs.

In order to choose the right plan, it is crucial to ask yourself the following questions:

  • How much can I afford to pay monthly?
  • What do I need the plan to cover?
  • Who do I need the cover for?

If you are not too sure about choosing the right plan that suits your pocket and covers your needs, our agents are on standby to assist.

Tombstone

The rationale behind offering this benefit is to provide a tombstone for a member and family at a reasonable cost. The monthly premium is determined by the benefit selected. The tombstone can be put up on the day of the funeral or at a later date.

We provide a wide range of tombstones which vary from standard tombstones to exclusively custom-made designs. The cover includes a headstone, and erection of the tombstone. (We deliver anywhere in South Africa and selected SADC countries)

Repatriation

The cost of repatriating mortal remains can be astronomical. This can put a huge strain on a family that is already in grief. 

The Funeral Support and Repatriation Benefit provided by FMS and Bataung Life is a service that covers the transportation of the deceased back home to a funeral home closer to their place of burial in South Africa. This is in the event that the death occurred far from the deceased’s home. Transportation of the deceased can be via road or air.

All FMS vehicles are refrigerated Mercedes Benz Sprinters and are fitted with live satellite tracking. Transport is available to anywhere in South Africa, Lesotho, Namibia, Swaziland, Botswana, Mozambique and Zimbabwe.
