Funeral Plan

The death of a loved one is a very emotional time, often made more stressful by the costs of a funeral and bills to pay.

Funeral Plan will provide you with the comfort of knowing that you and your family are protected from the added worry of some immediate financial problems.

Funeral Plan offers cover for $5,000, $7,500 or $10,000 to provide for the unexpected cost of a funeral. The cost of an average funeral is hard to estimate as there are variable costs for many of the items normally involved. The best current guide we can give you is that the average cost for a conventional funeral is around $7,000, but there are prices advertised ranging from $3,000 for a very simple funeral to $15,000 and more.

Note – In the event of a death you may also be entitled to receive a Funeral Grant from WINZ, and in the event of an accidental death you my be eligible for funeral expenses to be met by ACC.
