Funeral Nomination Form

Please note that funeral benefits are only be paid to a nominated beneficiary in terms of new legislation and, where there is no nominated beneficiary, to the estate of the deceased. This means that if you do not nominate a beneficiary to receive your funeral benefit (in the event that it is you who passes away), the funeral benefit will be paid into your estate and might not be available to help your family cover the funeral costs in good time.

To make things as easy as possible for your loved ones, we urge you to complete the Sanlam Beneficiary Nomination Form, and hand it to your HR Department, as soon as possible. A copy of this form can be emailed to the Fund for record-keeping purposes.
