I'm really lucky to have a supportive family because they're always there for me. As a Suncorp Claims Manager, every time I take a call I think about my own family.
Not many people like to talk about funerals but I do it every single day at work. I know how overwhelming the first few days can be for the family so I do what I can to relieve some of that stress.
I can always hear the relief in the clients voice when I tell them they could expect the payment within two business days. They're so much happier. Like they just have to have that, you know, initial financial burden that they have to try and somehow come up with. But then knowing that it's on its way and they won't have to worry it about any more. They can then focus on their family time now.
I even give the family my direct number so that they can call on me for support during the whole process. It feels really good that they can rely on me personally. It's a lot easier than calling a call centre.
At Suncorp we try to do everything we can to help your family when they need it most.

Frequently asked questions
Funeral insurance is an insurance policy designed to make sure your loved ones have access to the cash they need to pay for your funeral in the event of your death.
Paying for your funeral may not be one of the first things you think of when considering the impact of your passing on your family. However, funerals can often be expensive. Depending on the type of ceremony you choose, funerals can cost between $4,000 and $15,000 (and more) according to Moneysmart.gov.au.
It can be difficult for families to find the amount of money needed for a funeral at short notice. Funeral insurance eases that burden. It means that your partner, children, or whoever your nominated beneficiary is, has fast access to the money they need, usually within 24 to 48 hours.
We want to make sure that your family can afford to give you the funeral you would like. That's why we give you the control to choose how much cover you need.
The amount of cover that is right for you will depend on your financial circumstances and the sort of funeral you would like. With Suncorp Funeral Insurance, you can choose cover between $5,000 and $15,000 for level premiums, or up to $30,000 for stepped premiums.
The person who pays the premiums does not need to be the same as the person who is insured. Whoever is the insured person will always be the policy owner.
Who receives the lump sum paid out – otherwise known as the Funeral Benefit – in the event of your death is up to you. Whether yours is a single or joint policy, you can nominate one beneficiary.
