All of the information presented below is provided for information purposes only. Members should read the summary Regulations contained in their Membership Book very carefully in order to understand the terms and conditions relating to the various Benefits and Services offered by Pukwana ya Kganya. In the event of uncertainty, please feel free to phone the Kganya Helpline 0800 000 538.
With effect 1 April 2021, the monthly Contribution payable by Members comprises the following:
- Sanlam Risk Premium: R53.50
- KBFT: R29.55
- KIA Commission: R14.75
- Contribution to ZCC: R11.20
- Church Branch Retention: R1.00
- Monthly Contribution: R110.00
As a result of COVID-19, the increase in mortality (i.e. increase in claims) and current uncertainty has necessitated a decision by KBFT and Sanlam to enter into quarterly risk premium reviews.
Typically such reviews are conducted annually. In accordance with such agreement, the reviewed risk premium payable by the Trust to Sanlam each quarter will be dependent upon mortality expectations prevailing at each review date. In order to maintain the total monthly Contribution level at R110.00 for as long as is reasonably possible, KBFT, KIA and ZCC will reduce their respective allocations to accommodate any higher risk premium as required and, in need, KBFT will make use of its accumulated Reserves.
