  1. Hi colleagues. the recently promulgated regulations for funeral expenses under COID raise questions which I need assistance with:
    – what documents must be completed by the employee’s deceased family to claim the money?
    – where do the family get these documents?
    -where do the family get these documents? from employer or DoL?
    -who completes these documents? employer or DoL?
    I am asking these questions because the Govt Gazette did not include this information

    1. At this stage it is unclear. But we would assume the following would be required:
      1. A valid claim number under COID,
      2. A Death Certificate issued by the Department of Home Affairs.

      We will publish more info about this in a follow-up article on the matter.
