The PSA renders financial assistance with funeral costs in the event of a member's death.
The provision amounts to R4 500 (from 1 April 2019) per member and is granted on an ex-gratia basis, that is, as long as the funds are available. In the event of a member's death, the dependents/next of kin must inform the relevant PSA workplace, branch/committee representative or the PSA Provincial Office and submit the necessary duly completed forms to the PSA Provincial Office.
On receipt of the completed, prescribed application form, the PSA Head Office will effect payment, provided that the application is received by the PSA within six months of the date of death.
For more information contact your PSA Provincial Office.
