I see that you haven't made a payment for the question, but I'm going to assist you a little. If you want to ask a follow-up question, please make the required payment, even if it is R150 or R200.
If you were divorced from the deceased, and if the deceased was NOT supporting you financially, then you wouldn't have a claim against the policy.
The daughters would, and if the girlfriend was being supported by him, then she would as well.
Please remember this is a dialog if you have follow-up questions please make the required deposit, then use the REPLY button and ask your further question. I would like to continue assisting you, but I need to concentrate on people who make deposits for their questions - they get serviced first!
