Funeral Insurance Cover providers in Kenya

Here is a list of Kenyan companies that offer funeral insurance. The greatest way to accept that death is inevitable is to be ready for it. Funeral insurance cover providers offer to cover funeral costs in the event that one of the family members covered by the policy passes away.

According to Ipsos, only 4% of Kenyans have any kind of burial insurance coverage. The remaining 96% rely entirely on donations from friends and the work of burial committees.

Making precautions in advance to protect yourself and your loved ones from funeral expenditures is necessary because managing funeral prices and expenses is getting more challenging.
