04Beneficiaries & Claims

Your beneficiary gets any money that is left after all the funeral costs have been paid. You should choose the person to whom we pay out the money. This person is your beneficiary. Only a living (natural) person over the age of 18 can be nominated to receive benefits. Metropolitan GetUp will not pay a trust or a company.
