The Journey of Life!

Posted By Marilynh / September 28, 2017 / 2 Comments


The last days of one’s life are unknown and it’s not something we even like to think about it. To ensure however that you have a dignified send-off, preparation is key. At AVBOB we have developed what is called a “File of Life” which is a handy tool to guide you when you consider your funeral needs and requirements. It was designed  to ensure that all necessary documentation is kept together and will be readily available to your loved ones, who will be making arrangements for the final send-off. It will include your wishes, what your family has to do and things that have to be done before, during and after funeral during this difficult time.

The File of Life includes all personal information such as copies of your Identity Document (ID) and that of your spouse, medical information, insurance policies, a last will and testament and any other instructions regarding the administration of your  estate. It may also include information on financial advisors, contracts or agreements that are binding and on your next of kin, bank account(s) and tax information. Being prepared and having funeral cover with a reputable insurer will provide your family with peace of mind. Having access to all relevant documentation will allow your family to focus on things that really matter, rather than running around trying to find documents and finding ways  to pay for the funeral.



AVBOB has been around for almost 100 years and is widely regarded as the leader in the funeral insurance and funeral service industry. It is a one-stop-shop in the funeral industry as the organisation does not only provide funeral insurance, but also has a nationwide network of 280 branches across South Africa and 20 in Namibia and a state of the art factory that manufactures coffins and caskets and other related products.

In your family’s time of need, remember that AVBOB is available at any time (24/7) to assist with any necessary arrangements or advice.  AVBOB representatives are available 24 hours a day and once you have appointed AVBOB to conduct the funeral you can be assured that they will assist your family every step of the way.

    A very useful document. I had to read the Afrikaans version, which incidentally uploaded just fine on my PC. The English version would not load. Perhaps Avbob can take a look at their website and correct this?

      Hi Adrienne

      Thanks for pointing this out to us. We will contact AVBOB and advise them of this.

      Kind regards
