funeral cover policies and plans

Shoprite, one of the biggest supermarkets in South Africa, also offers financial services through their Shoprite Money Market in-store service. Included in these services is a funeral cover. Through their foot-step in all big and small towns, this is essential and easy for people who live in rural and small towns and aren’t able to access cheap funeral cover services as easily.

The Shoprite Funeral Cover currently starts from a low fixed monthly premium of R29.99 per month, for a maximum R10 000 payout for the main member. These premiums can be paid in through a debit order, Shoprite till, or their in-store money market counter.
