Funeral Insurance claims

Making a claim

Naturally we understand the illness or passing of a loved one is always a difficult time. We’ll make the claims process as easy as we can, with a claims consultant to support you and your family through the process, step by step. Here’s what your family would need to do:

1 Call 1300 996 143 or download a claim form

The quicker we’re notified, the faster we can work to help make sure you or your family receive the financial assistance needed. We'll talk you or your family through the process so you know exactly what needs to be done.

2 Send the details to us

Generally this will include the following:

  • A completed Claim Form
  • If the claim is for Terminal Illness or Accidental Injury, we'll also require appropriate medical evidence
  • For death claims, a certified copy of the Death Certificate, Medical Attendant’s Certificate or another document showing evidence of death
  • A copy of the insured person’s birth certificate, passport or another formal identity document showing their age
  • A copy of proof of identity for the person making the claim

We may require some of these documents to be certified copies and will let your family know when they first contact us. A certified copy is a copy signed and stamped by an individual authorised to do so who has checked it against the original document. Within Australia, certification can be completed by a range of authorised persons within the community including Medical Practitioners, Legal Practitioners, Court Officials, Justices of the Peace (JP), Full-time Primary or Secondary School Teachers, Pharmacists, Veterinarians and Police Officers.

We’ll be in touch as quickly as we can to let your family know the outcome.
