Doves will provide the following:* a coffin* a hearse * a tent and chairs at the grave sideDoves will also arrange the death certificate and will remove the body to a Doves funeral parlour.

I am a Numsa member and a single adult male supporting my mother. If my mother dies will Doves cover her death?No, you must pay Top Up funeral cover (described above).
But if you die, Doves will cover your funeral and if you list your mother as your family member then she will get the funeral benefit for your funeral.
What happens if I don't want the funeral benefit but I want to take cash instead?You can take cash instead of the funeral benefit. But you will only get paid out R2000 for your death or your spouse's death. You will get R500 for each of your children's death.
I live in Lesotho. Does the funeral scheme cover me and my family in Lesotho?If you or one of your family members die you will not be able to get the funeral benefit because Doves does not operate in Lesotho. But you can claim the cash benefit instead (see above).
If there is death in the family what do I do?Phone the Doves call centre immediately 0860112288.Have your ID number ready.
If I am retrenched from my job can I stay on as a member of the Numsa funeral scheme?Yes, as long as you have been a member of Numsa for more than two years.
