This is the moment a family leaves their loved one’s corpse in an insurance company office after the firm refused to pay out on a funeral policy claim.

The incident was filmed at an office of the pan-African insurance company Old Mutual in the eastern South African state of KwaZulu-Natal, and the footage was posted on Twitter by netizen ‘White Man Confession’.

The post’s message read: “Family bring their dead family member after Old Mutual refused to pay their policy benefit. Old Mutual’s arrogance is stinking now. What a shame! May the soul of the poor person Rest In Peace. Plz Retweet.”

According to local media, shortly after dropping the corpse off at an Old Mutual office, the company agreed to process and pay off the claim.

The company said that the claim was due to go for further assessment, but did not specify what the holdup was for.

Meanwhile, the grieving family have yet to make a statement to local media.

Netizen ‘HBMZulu’ said: “I am traumatised by this. Must have taken a lot for this family to do this with their dead.”

‘Z Tshabangu’ said: “Old Mutual never pay black people’s claims. I have been screening at the top of my lungs for the past weeks of a policy they refuse to pay.”

‘LeightenM’ commented: “I remember claiming for my late father’s policy after his passing with @OldMutualSA they never gave me any challenges. They paid the proceeds without taking me from A to Z. I will forever be grateful for the services they rendered to me.”
