Fully completed claim control sheet.
Certified copy of the computerized death certificate.
Copy of the BI – 1663 form (Notification/Registration of death).

SAPS report (in respect of death by unnatural causes).
Certified copy of the bank statement of the beneficiary /claimant (not older than 3 (three) months).
Marriage certificate (where applicable).
In cases where there is no copy of the identity document available for the deceased or claimant, an affidavit from the claimant or letter from the Department of Home Affairs confirming this must be submitted. If the claimant does not have an identity document, proof of application for an identity document must be submitted with the claim documents.
The membership number of the Member, where applicable.
Should a funeral/cremation be carried out by AVBOB Funeral Service Ltd, the benefits payable in terms of this Group Scheme will in the first instance be applied to assist in the defraying of the costs of such funeral/cremation and the balance, if any, will be payable to the person(s) entitled thereto or the deceased estate.
6. WAITING PERIOD
No benefits will be payable if a Member dies within (6) six months of joining the Group Scheme, unless such death occurs as a result of an accident (suicide excluded).

Should the date of birth of a Member differ from the information provided to the Assurer where the age exceeds the eligible age under the Group Scheme, no benefits shall be payable.
8. GRACE PERIOD
In the event that a Member migrates out of the Tariff Plan connected to this Group Scheme, the Member will forfeit all benefits in terms of the Group Scheme.
In order to ensure uninterrupted membership in the Group Scheme, the Member must opt back into the Tariff Plan within 90 (ninety) days of opting out.
In this regard no new waiting period will be applicable other than the remaining waiting period, if any.
9. UNCLAIMED BENEFITS
A Member has the right to unclaimed benefits regardless of the time frame. The Assurer will where benefits become payable and no claim has been submitted, trace the Member within a period of 6 (six) months. Should the Assurer be unsuccessful in tracing the Member it will repeat the tracing process within a period of 3 (three) years and again within a period of 10 (ten) years if the benefits remain unclaimed. If after the 10 (ten) years the Assurer cannot trace the Member an external tracing company will be used.
This requirement will only be waived if the benefits are worth less than R1000 and the cost of the tracing exceeds the amount available. Any reasonable administrative and tracing costs incurred after the first attempt to trace the Member may be recovered from the unclaimed benefits.
It remains the responsibility of the Member to inform the Assurer of any changes in respect of his or her contact information and any changes in respect of the contact information of the beneficiary. The Assurer will rely on the Member’s consent which was given to share any personal information with a tracing company to facilitate tracing in the event that tracing becomes necessary in future.
The Benefits, Premiums, Privileges, Conditions and Provisions of the Group Scheme are guaranteed for nine (9) months as from the Commencement date after which period the Assurer may review it. The Assurer undertakes to review the premiums quoted at quarterly intervals, taking in consideration claims experience and total membership of the Group scheme. Notice to this effect will be given in writing to the Administrator, Cell C and Members at least (3) three months in advance.
