Funeral Cover

Honour your loved ones with our expert brokers


What Is Funeral Cover ?

Funeral insurance provides a lump-sum payment to cover funeral expenses and related costs upon the death of the policyholder, ensuring a dignified funeral without financial strain on the family. You might take out a funeral insurance policy to relieve their family of the financial burden associated with funeral costs and to ensure a respectful send-off.

Funeral cover provides peace of mind, knowing that funeral expenses will be taken care of, allowing the family to focus on grieving and honouring the memory of their loved one.

Benefits of Funeral Cover

Purchase a policy

When purchasing a funeral cover policy, you will select the cover amount, which represents the lump-sum payment that will be paid upon your death. You will pay monthly premiums to the insurance company to maintain cover. Premiums may be level (remain the same throughout the policy) or increase with age.

Policy terms

Funeral cover policies may have specific terms and conditions, such as waiting periods for natural death cover, exclusions for pre-existing conditions, or age limits for eligibility. It's essential to understand the policy terms before purchasing.

Waiting period

Many funeral insurance policies have a waiting period (e.g., 6 or 12 months) after the policy becomes effective, during which the full death benefit will not be paid in the event of a natural death. Accidental deaths are typically covered from the start of the policy. If the policyholder dies during the waiting period due to natural causes, the insurance company may refund the premiums paid.

Claim initiation

When the policyholder passes away, the family or nominated beneficiary needs to submit a claim to the insurance company, providing necessary documentation such as a death certificate and identification documents.
