Funeral Insurance Frequently Asked Questions

How does Funeral Insurance work?

Funeral insurance is paid in the form of a lump sum benefit your family can use to pay immediate expenses, such as your funeral service or any outstanding debts you may have.

You choose a cover amount to suit you, and pay ongoing premium payments, usually fortnightly or monthly. In the event of a claim, your beneficiary will receive your cover amount.

Is Funeral Insurance Tax deductible

In most cases, funeral insurance premiums are not tax deductible. But there’s generally no tax on the benefits that you or your beneficiaries will receive.

However, it’s always possible that tax laws may change in future. What’s more, this may not apply to your specific situation. So, it’s important to seek qualified professional advice about the tax implications of any insurance product.

Do premiums go up?

With some providers, the answer might be ‘yes’, but with Seniors Funeral Insurance Top Cover we promise your premiums will never increase and will reduce by 5% for every 5 years your policy is in force.

When the time comes, your loved ones will be paid either your cover or all of the premiums that you’ve paid – whichever is greater. This is subject to you keeping your policy in force and without changing your level of cover.

Can I buy funeral insurance for my parents?

Yes - As long as your parents are Australian residents under the age of 79 you’re eligible to apply for Seniors Funeral Insurance.

What is ‘Accidental Death’?

An ‘Accidental Death’ is a death occurring as the direct result of an Accident and where death occurs within 90 days of the Accident.

An ‘Accident’ means an event resulting in bodily injury occurring, where the injury is directly and solely caused by accidental, violent, external and visible means without any other contributing causes and where the injury is not self-inflicted.
