SureStart Online Financial Services and TPI Insurance, have collaborated to launch Eyethu Funeral, a fully digital solution for distributing competitive funeral cover in South Africa.
Consumers can chat to Timothy, the chatbot, on the Eyethu website or WhatsApp line to open their funeral policy.
Eyethu funeral policies are underwritten by Guardrisk.
Eyethu Funeral has partnered with 1Voucher and Flash in creating a new way for customers to pay monthly premiums. This partnership uses technology to make life easier for informal market consumers.
Eyethu funeral policy premiums can be paid using 1Voucher at any of their partners including Flash shops, Pep, Ackermans, House & Home, Checkers, Shoprite, USave, OK and Dealz nationwide.
Born during South Africa’s COVID-19 lockdown, the project went live on 15 May 2020 and hopes to offer consumers a new-world, digital solution to covering themselves and their families in the event of a death.
