Funeral Insurance

There’s one thing you can trust to look after your family, NEW Suncorp Funeral Insurance

Designed to relieve your friends and family from the financial burden of your funeral, funeral insurance can offer you the peace of mind that your final expenses are paid for. By choosing NEW Funeral Insurance from Suncorp, you can benefit from a whole range of new and convenient features, while your loved ones will benefit from quick access to a lump sum payment to help cover the cost of your funeral.

The benefits

When it comes to choosing the right cover, flexibility and choice is important – which is why we offer more flexibility in cover and payment options, and a great range of new features to benefit you. Here’s an idea of where our product may differ from others;

  • Value Promise Guarantee
    If you are worried about paying more in premiums than you get back in return, our new Value Promise should set your mind at ease. When you claim, we’ll pay out either your cover amount, or the total amount you’ve paid in premiums – whichever is greater! For example, if you have a cover amount of $10,000 but, over the life of your policy, you’ve paid $12,000 in premiums, we’ll pay out $12,000. How’s that for trustworthiness!
  • Early Payment Benefit
    Whilst most insurers only pay out if you die, our new Early Payment benefit pays you if, after the first 12 months of the policy, you were to be diagnosed with a terminal illness. We’d pay you up to your full cover amount which you could use to enjoy your time with your family.
  • Flexible Premium Options
    As for payment and cover flexibility, you have the choice of stepped or level premiums. With stepped premiums, your premiums will generally start lower and gradually increase with your age each year. With level premiums, your premiums will remain the same until the policy anniversary following your 85th birthday, after which, cover becomes free.
