Funeral Insurance claims
To lodge your claim, one of our friendly staff will be there to take care of your nominated beneficiaries or your legal personal representative. Please have the policy number on hand as well as date and cause of death. During the phone call we will take your representative through a few questions and declarations. At the end of the call we will email through the information we require which will need to be returned to us as soon as possible. If you are lodging an Early Benefit Payment claim we will require forms to be completed, we will provide these to you
Alternatively you can email us 24/7 by sending an online message.
Gather your required documents
- A copy of the death certificate, Medical Attendant’s Certificate or another document showing proof of death
- A copy of the deceased’s birth certificate, passport or another official document showing their date of birth, and
- A copy that shows proof of identity for the beneficiary or joint policy owner, and your relationship to the deceased.
Please note: Certified copies are required on benefits above $20,000, where the death happens outside of Australia, or when claiming an Accidental Death benefit. A certified copy is a copy signed and certified as being a true and accurate copy of the original document by a person who is authorised by law to certify documents. Legal practitioners, Justices of the Peace, police officers and chemists are some of the individuals who are authorised by law to certify documents.
Regular copies of these documents are required for all other claims. Please do not send original documents.
