Your loved ones deserve peace of mind

For many of us, friends and family are the most important thing in life. You can always rely on them during hard times so it’s nice to ensure they’re looked after when it matters most. That’s where funeral insurance can help.

Funeral insurance gives your loved ones a lump-sum payout when you pass away, helping to cover your funeral or other expenses left behind. This makes a difficult time much easier for those closest to you, letting them honour your last wishes without the added stress or expense.

Here are some common reasons to consider funeral insurance for you and your loved ones:

Leaving your family with one less worry

The last thing your family needs when you’re gone is to worry about finances. Unfortunately, the average cost of a funeral alone is over $7,000. That can be very difficult for loved ones to pay on such short notice.

With funeral insurance, you can choose a benefit amount of up to $15,000 which your family can use to pay for your funeral.

Settle your unpaid debts

It’s common to leave behind unpaid expenses when you pass away. On top of the cost of your funeral, there may also be outstanding debts or bills that you haven’t had a chance to settle.

That’s why funeral insurance is designed as a lump-sum payout. Your beneficiaries can use the money wherever it’s needed most, so they’re not left to find the money at a difficult time.

Give your family peace of mind today

When you take out Seniors Funeral Insurance, you can choose a cover amount between $3,000 and $15,000, depending on your and your family’s personal needs. Plus, once you turn 85, you will no longer need to pay any premiums, and you will also receive an extra 25% Bonus Cover for even greater peace of mind.

You don’t need to worry about your financial situation changing as you get older – Seniors Funeral Insurance also comes with an Early Cash Out Option, which means you can end your policy and receive 75% of your cover amount after you reach 85 years of age.
