The newly established NERPO Funeral Cover, a product of NERPO Financial Services (Pty) Ltd, a subsidiary company of NERPO Group, has pushed the boundaries in the life insurance industry.With its African quintessence, NERPO Funeral Cover is believed to be a "true proudly African" funeral plan product.

In the main, NERPO Funeral Cover is targeting rural farming communities as well as African men and women whose preferred burial service involves slaughtering of a cow or an ox. The cover was initially tailor-made for farmers and it is growing from strength to strength. This uniquely designed cover is available for only R119.00 (one hundred and nineteen rands only) per month and it combines a payout of up to R20 000 (twenty thousand rands) for a member, spouse, maximum of 4 biological children and a cow/an ox, all payable or delivered to beneficiaries within a period of 48 hours from receipt of all requisite documents.

The age limit to sign-up for this unique product is 75 years.

"We at NERPO Financial Services (NFS) pride ourselves for having hands-on experience of working with the farmers and rural communities. This has given us the edge from our competitors as we are better place in understanding their day-to-day needs. We are proud to have delivered another breaking financial product for members, the farmers and rural South Africa" said a visible proud Chief Executive Officer of NFS.

When asked about competing life plan products and insurance service providers,Ms Nyathela was quick to point out that "our cover is not a replacement of any existing short and long term insurance one might have but a compliment which brings about a true African facet as well pride & dignity in one’s burial" she said.

One delighted member of NERPO Funeral Cover believes that the product restores human dignity and African pride.

"Having grown up in the rural farm community, I grew up knowing that on the day of my burial, my kids will slaughter my favourite bull as a show of respect and honour. This product has given me an assurance that my kids will not deviate from my wish. I am happy to know that I will be sent-off with dignity" said Mr. Victor Moagi a seasoned farmer from the North West Province
