Funeral benefit

If you have lost a loved one, you’ll know that it’s hard to focus on what needs to be done in your time of grief.

You might also not be able to cover the unexpected cost, an added worry while you are in distress. Jet Club is here to help ease with the financial burden.


  • When a member passes on, we make a cash payout of 3 500.00. For a member’s partner, we pay out 1 500.00 in cash.
  • Payout is done at any Jet store within 48 hours of approval.

"I was 17 when my grandmother passed away,” writes Club member Liziwe. "She was the breadwinner. She used to make sure that every month I had money for toiletries and that my hair looked clean for school. The day she passed away, I felt so alone. I asked myself what I was going to do since I had to complete matric. However, my grandmother was part of the amazing Jet Club family, and her Funeral Benefit payout helped us so much in our time of grief. Today, I am 26 and I am also a Jet Club member, and I have peace of mind knowing that Jet can come to my kids’ rescue one day. Thank you, Jet Club! We contribute a small amount for the benefits but they make a huge and life-changing difference."
