The AVBOB Group (AVBOB Insurance, AVBOB Funeral Service and AVBOB Industries) is South Africa’s only mutual society that provides a one-stop funeral insurance and burial service solution. AVBOB’s roots go as far back as 1918 when the society was a benevolent fund or burial society that had the capacity to conduct funerals as well.

AVBOB offers the entire spectrum of funeral services via an extensive national infrastructure consisting of more than 160 funeral agencies, 95 insurance offices and a manufacturing plant. Almost a century later AVBOB continues to make affordable insurance available so that people – from the richest to the poorest – have access to a dignified send off when their time comes.

Our commitment to putting you first and our unwavering pledge to excellence and ever improving customer service is what makes us proud to say “we’re here for you”.

AVBOB Mutual Assurance Society

Mutual Society Benefits

AVBOB does not have any external shareholders and our policyholders benefit directly from our successes. When we say our policyholders benefit, we mean it!

Over and above the normal annual bonuses, AVBOB has over the past nine years allocated an incredible R6,5 billion in special bonuses and enhanced FREE funeral benefits to more than 5,8 million lives assured with us.

The profits we make are given back to our policyholders as well as the family and loved ones that our policyholders have insured under an AVBOB policy. This is given back in the form of increased policy value as well as continually enhanced FREE Funeral benefits.

Belonging to a Mutual Society is similar to belonging to a family and in a family, people share with one another.

Why Choose AVBOB?

In today’s competitive business world, brands go to extreme lengths to position themselves as “different”. More often than not, these differentiators are formulated, and often they are rather forced. This is not the case for AVBOB – a century-old, iconic South African brand that finds its “difference” in its own DNA. In fact, AVBOB is a business like no other in its industry. This is a bold claim for any business to make, but for AVBOB it’s the truth. Simply put, AVBOB is a Mutual Assurance Society. This means that AVBOB has no external shareholders.
That’s right, AVBOB’s policyholders benefit directly from the society’s profits and receive special bonuses in the form of FREE funeral benefits.
This means that policyholders get to keep their money – their entire policy value – to spend on those extras that will ensure a dignified send-off for their loved ones. AVBOB, in other words, is defined by its unique culture of sharing.
With AVBOB family comes first, always!
