Spouse   Married  
Sanlam considers a spouse to be someone the policyholder is married to.    Sanlam considers a marriage to be when two people are:  
  • Married according to the laws of any sovereign country;  
This relationship must be in place when cover is applied for.   • Married according to customary or tribal law;  
Child   • Married under any religion that is practiced in South Africa;  
This is your Child or your Spouse’s child. A Child meets these conditions:   • Living together and financially dependent on one another for at least 6 months; or  
• Not married;   • Party to a civil union in terms of the Civil Union Act, 2006.  
• Before their 25th birthday; and

These relationships must be in place when cover is applied for.                      
The following is a brief summary of all the benefits available on the My Choice Family Funeral Plan that you selected.  
“You” and “Your” mean the policyholder.  
Exclusions for all benefits except for Savings Benefit:  
Sanlam will not pay a benefit if it is as a direct or indirect result of active participation in war, invasion, acts of foreign enemies, hostilities, illegal strikes, warlike operations (whether war be declared or not), civil war, rebellion, revolution, insurrection, civil commotion assuming the proportions of or amounting to an uprising or riot, military or usurped power.  
Funeral Cover   Savings Benefit  
We will pay:   This is an optional benefit allowing you to save as little as R10 per month from 5 up to 15 years. If you die, the money will be paid out to your chosen beneficiaries.  
• The Funeral Cover amount.    
When we will pay:    
• On the death of a person covered on this policy.   On maturity we will pay:  
• When cover starts if death is because of an accident.   • The greater of the fund value and the sum of all the savings premiums paid, less allocation charges, less any payments from the fund (partial surrenders) which is the Guaranteed Maturity Value (GMV)*.  
• Six (6) months from cover start if death is due to non-accidental causes.    
• Stillbirth claims for the policyholder and spouse, if covered, for stillbirths that happen after the 28th week of pregnancy.   Restriction period:  
  • During the first 5 years you are allowed to withdraw a portion of your investment by requesting a part surrender.  
We will not pay:    
• If the death is due to non-accidental causes within six (6) months from cover start.   • Legislation allows you to make only one part surrender from your policy in the first 5 years.  
• The Funeral Cover amount for children after the end of the month that they turn 25.   • The part surrender may not be more than your premiums paid plus 5% and any remaining balance must remain invested up until the restriction period ends.  
Premium paid-up   • If at any time, you increase your premiums by more than 20%, a new restriction period will apply on the increased premiums and run together with the initial restriction period.  
Sanlam will pay the premiums on the policy, excluding the savings premiums, when the principal life assured turns 75 provided that the principal life assured has been paying premiums for at least 15 years.    
  • After the restriction period, you are allowed to make as many withdrawals as you want.  
If the Savings Benefit term ends after the above, the principal life assured will still pay the premiums for the Savings Benefit until the end of the Savings Benefit term.   • You can also make your Savings Benefit paid-up when you notify us that you want to stop paying premiums, but your existing investment remains fully invested in the fund.  
                    * The Guaranteed Maturity Value (GMV) is the sum of all the premiums paid, less all charges and fees, less any payments from the investment value (partial surrenders).  
Burial Repatriation Benefit    
This provides for:    
• The transportation of a deceased life assured from the Republic of South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Swaziland, Lesotho and Mozambique (south of the 22 degree parallel) to the place of burial anywhere in South Africa.              
• Travel and overnight accommodation for a family member accompanying the deceased.    
• Arranging counselling for family members, funeral arrangement advice and help with claims and death certificates.    
Unemployment and Pregnancy - Payment Holiday    
We will:    
• Allow you to keep the policy active for 12 months without making any monthly premium payments if you become pregnant or unemployed.    
• Pay R5 000 during this time if you die in an accident and had cover.    
• Payment holiday allowed once during the life of the policy.    
• Allow all lives covered on the policy to use the Burial Repatriation Benefit during the payment holiday.    
We will not pay:    
• Any other benefit during this payment holiday.    
• The Savings Benefit premium during the time this benefit is active.    
This helps you keep up with the rising costs of living by increasing your premium and cover. After the start of the policy, you can change your premium and cover increases.    
You can also change or stop the increases anytime by giving Sanlam notice.    
Cash Back Benefit    
We will pay:    
• an amount of money to you, at the end of every 3-year period, if the policy is active.    
• The amount is equal to a number of month’s premiums paid by you from the first year in that 3-year period, but does not include the Savings Benefit premiums paid.    
When we will pay:    
• At the end of each 3-year period starting from the first policy issue date.    
We will not pay:    
• If you are not paying the premiums on the date this benefit is due.
