For many families, a domestic worker is often so much more than ‘just’ an employee – a housekeeper, cook, friend and, at times, substitute mother to your children, your domestic worker cares for your family as if is her own for many hours a week, but who is watching out for her dependants?
Tetiwe Jawuna, Head of Standard Bank Insurance Brokers (SBIB), South Africa says “Standard Bank offers you the chance to take care of the one who takes care of you with FuneralPlan, a financial solution that ensures the funeral costs of your hired staff or her family is covered in the event of their passing.
Ms. Jawuna shares the benefits of FuneralPlan below:
Though your motivations for purchasing FuneralPlan for your domestic worker are wholly altruistic, the benefits are not entirely one-sided: if you are a UCount Rewards member, you will receive 50 points each month for every qualifying insurance policy you have. This could increase your tier-level, meaning more rewards points to spend as you please at the UCount Rewards Online and Travel Malls!

After months or even years spent faithfully watching over your children and home, your domestic worker essentially becomes part of your family, so it makes sense that you would want to protect them and their loved ones in difficult times – help them take care of their family like they take care of yours: SMS ‘support’ to 31492 to get FuneralPlan for your hired help.
