What is an ecological death insurance?
Death insurance guarantees a funeral service on the decease of an insured person, as well as the management of all necessary procedures in the event of death: administrative and legal procedures, transfers to any place in Spain and international repatriations.
In our case, death insurance also takes into account 9 principles set by Fundación Tierra, which are based on environmental criteria to guide and facilitate the planning of a low environmental impact burial: reduction in waste products, in non-biodegradable artificial components, in toxic chemical products, in consumption of non-renewable energy, in polluting emissions, incorporating locally produced and certified natural products and materials; we also offer in-person or telephone consultations with a psychologist to take care of the rest of the family's emotional health, among other healthcare cover.
Which funeral home will provide the contracted service?
We have a wide national network of authorised funeral service providers, so you won't have to worry about the management and provision of the service. See here
Am I insured for life with a death insurance?
All of our death insurance policies are life-long. This means that once a death insurance policy is taken out, it is valid for the insured person's whole life unless the policyholder cancels the insurance or stops paying the premium.
If I pass away while abroad, is my transfer covered?
If you are a foreigner and reside in Spain, DKV Protección Familiar includes the repatriation service to your home country, a round trip for a companion and other important advantages. We are the only ones to include it without any extra cost in the death policy!
Is a service due to COVID-19 death covered?
Both the funeral and psychological assistance are covered in the event of death by COVID-19.
In addition, if you are travelling abroad, worldwide emergency assistance is also covered in the event of a COVID-19 contagion.
Moreover, in the event of foreign residents in Spain passing due to COVID-19, we will carry out the international transfer following the provisions of current legislation, provided that the destination country authorises reception. You can also opt for incineration in Spain and a subsequent international transfer of ashes.
