Some benefits are provided on the death of the life insured and only become available when the claim for the funeral benefit is approved.
All other benefits become available once the Assupol On-Call benefit starts. These services are provided by outsourced service-providers. A service is available as a benefit under your policy only if it is provided by them.
Assupol On-Call services are provided in South Africa. Certain services, including transport of a deceased life insured to the place of the funeral and medical assistance and trauma counselling by telephone are also provided in the neighbouring countries of Botswana, Lesotho, Mozambique, Namibia, Swaziland and Zimbabwe, if the person concerned travels there (but only below the 22° parallel).
