Fast Claims Process
We realise that any delay only adds to your grief, so we ensure the fastest possible payout – sometimes within 24 hours providing we have all documentation we need.
Up to $6,000 benefit amount for a nominee after their first full payment has been received increasing up to $20,000 after the first 12 months.
14 Day Satisfaction Period
The ‘cooling off period’ is 10 business days, or the equivalent of 14 days as these may include weekends or public holidays.
Established & Experienced
We have more than 25 years experience providing funeral related expenses plans to Australians.
Our Community Funeral Plans provides a benefit amount for you and your family for the purpose of paying for funeral and funeral related expenses.
Founded over 25 years ago as part of the Youpla (formerly ACBF) group of companies, Community Funeral Plans provides financial peace of mind for your family by reducing the stress associated with unexpected or even expected funeral debts. We are proud of how quickly we make a payout when a person under one of our funeral plans passes away. Our plans are designed to take the financial sting out of grief.
Our experience has shown that the heartbreak of grief can never be taken away, but we can at least help ease that grief.
- Our payout speed can be as little as 24 hours with all the right paperwork.
- We offer up to $20,000 benefit amount - most other insurers only offer $15k.
- Get an immediate benefit amount of up to $6,000 once we receive the first payment.
- After 12 months your benefit amount is increased from $6,000 to the benefit amount of your choice, and we cover suicide after 12 months.
- Only 3 medical questions, no doctors reports. We are a private company which means we make the decisions, not doctors.
"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.
