"My mum passed away two years ago. I was very, very happy with the speed at which my claim was dealt with and I didn’t expect it to be as fast. The staff – the ladies – were very polite, and lovely to deal with. Without the funeral plan payout, it would have been very hard to manage as I have two young children. All I can say of my experience is one word: ‘excellent.’ "

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Plan for?
It is to provide money to meet or contribute to the funeral and incidental expenses of each of your Nominees.
Can I take money out if I am short of money?
No. That is not how the Plan works. It is not a savings plan. There is no money “in your plan”. Rather, in return for the payments made to us we promise to make a payout, in accordance with the rules of the Plan, following the passing of each of your Nominees. That payout is only to pay funeral and incidental expenses of the deceased Nominee and is not to be used for any other purpose.
Can I use money for another person’s funeral expenses?
No. It is only for the funeral and incidental expenses of the deceased Nominee.
Who can be a Nominee?
The Plan is open to all citizens and residents of Australia who at the time application is made are under 65 years of age.
What is a Classification?
Based on the information you provide, we assign a classification to each Nominee based on age and our assessment of the Nominee’s health.
How is this classification used?
We use the classification to decide the benefit amount we will offer and the payment required.
How does a Nominee’s age affect classification?
Nominees aged from 60 to 64 will be classified as Level 3. All Nominees under 60 will be classified as Level 1, 2 or 3 based on the information you provide in the health statement.
Do I need to let you know if the health of a Nominee changes?
Not unless the original information given by you at the time of application was wrong.
