About funeral insurance

 

What is funeral insurance?

The death of a loved one is a devastating time for any family. And something that is often overlooked, is putting a plan in place to cover the cost of the funeral. These days, a typical funeral can cost anywhere between $4,000 and $14,000* according to ASIC’s MoneySmart website – when you think about expenses like the burial plot, coffin, flowers, burial or cremation, it all adds up.

Funeral insurance helps your loved ones pay for these funeral costs, so your family can focus on saying goodbye the way they want, not worrying about how they are going to find thousands of dollars at what could be short notice.

With Let’s Insure Funeral Insurance, you pay a regular premium, and the policy pays a lump sum benefit to your family when you pass away. What’s more, with Let’s Insure Funeral Insurance you also have the flexibility to spend the benefit however you choose, so you aren’t locked in.

 

Who should have funeral insurance?
