Plus, if you take up Suncorp Funeral Insurance today, we'll give you a $50 gift card.

30 day cooling off period

You have 30 days to change your mind after you take out cover.

Receive your payout early if you're diagnosed with a terminal illness

If after 12 months of your policy commencing a registered doctor diagnoses you with a terminal illness with less than 12 months to live, we will advance your full payout. This can help you to arrange your financial affairs or make some lasting memories with your loved ones.

Single and joint policies available

Purchase a joint policy with an immediate family member and enjoy a 20% discount plus the convenience of having just one policy.

Plus other features that can help make managing your premiums easy

Your choice of stepped or level premiums

Like most types of life insurance, the cost of funeral insurance typically increases each year, as you get older. If you find this too unpredictable and are looking for a way to manage your premiums, we give you the option to choose between stepped premiums, which will increase with your age or level premiums which start out higher but  do not increase every year as you get older.

Of course, your premium will increase if you choose to increase your funeral insurance cover down the track, or accept automatic indexation each year.

No premiums after your 85th birthday

We won’t charge you any premiums from the policy anniversary after your 85th birthday.

20% Family Discount

If an immediate family member also takes out a funeral insurance policy, they will save 20% on their insurance premium. For example, if you and your partner purchase a joint policy, you’ll both receive 20% off your premium straight away.

Amount of premiums paid will never exceed your payout at claim time

Payout to your beneficiaries will always be the greater of:

1) the sum of your premiums paid, and

2) the cover amount you chose (your sum insured).

10% Cash Back Benefit

Receive a 10% cash back amount every 3 years you continue to hold your policy.

10% Large Sum Insured Discount

If you’ve chosen a stepped premium policy and have a sum insured of at least $20,000, you will also get a discount of 10%.

What's not covered?

The Funeral Benefit won’t be paid if you die during the first 12 months  after your policy commences due to an accident that occurred prior to the policy start date, a sickness, or as a result of an intentional self-inflicted act.
