Funeral benefits assist with the payment of funeral costs when a member or pensioner passes away. Funeral benefits are also paid out on the death of the spouse, life partner or eligible child of a member or pensioner. Wherever possible, the GPAA tries to pay this benefit within 72 hours of receiving a correctly completed application.

Detailed information regarding funeral benefits is available under the ‘Our benefits’ section of the GEPF website at
