What is it?

This is a funeral policy that pays up to K5 million in case of a death that occurs abroad. This is dependent on the package that is chosen during onboarding. It is designed to be purchasable by clients in Malawi, for those abroad and those already abroad from as little as K6,500 per month.

A member who buys the policy, known as the principal member, can add a spouse and up to four children as immediate family. The principal member can further add up to five extended family members including parents.
