While all other
supplemental group life insurance caters to people who wished to be
buried in Cameroon, LECDA-Life covers everyone, including people
who have decided to be buried in the US or other parts of the world.
Lack of proper documents to prove residency or death of a member. Final decision by next of kin of where the member will be buried can delay the processing member’s family claim of benefit.
LECDA-LIFE will work with the bereaved family and the group to ensure
that every active member receives the right benefit at death.
For now, benefit is non-negotiable. A member will be paid the benefit specified at death on the basis where the member dies and had chosen to be buried. However, when LECDALIFE gets to
10,000 members, there will be flat benefit for all its members.
Enrollment is through affiliated groups and the decision of who can
enroll or not should be based on the internal regulations of the group. It is recommended for groups to encourage families to enroll all its members, even if only one member belongs to the group.
Payment of death benefit is made to the next-of-kin or designee and the
intent is to help cover the funeral cost. However, LECDA-LIFE does not insist on how the money will be used by the beneficiary.
Individuals can enroll only through an
affiliated group. If you live in a state/city/town without a group, consider
recruiting 20 members for the sole purpose of enrolling in LECDA-LIFE.
The administrators and administrative assistant will be happy to help
you form your group and enrolling your group members in LECDA-LIFE.
