What is Funeral Insurance?


Funeral Insurance is a type of insurance that makes sure your family has the money they need to cover the costs of your funeral.

By paying fortnightly or monthly premiums, based on the amount of cover you require, you can ensure that when the time comes, your family has one less thing to deal with. 

At Insuranceline, we provide fast payouts – usually within 24 hours of receiving the completed claim - as well personalised assistance from a claims manager.

How much cover will I need?


Even a basic funeral can start from $6,000, while a more expensive funeral can be up to $15,000 (Money Smart, Australian Securities & Investments Commission, 2012) or more. The costs include venue hire, service fees, transportation, and a burial plot or cremation. There are also additional things, such as flowers, food and drinks for the wake.
