Understanding Funeral Insurance

What is funeral insurance?

Funeral Insurance provides an agreed sum of money designed to help with costs that can come with a funeral. Funeral Insurance payouts are usually made quite quickly, giving your family one less thing to worry about if you pass away.

What does funeral insurance cover?

Medibank Funeral Insurance offers a lump sum cover to help your family manage the expenses in the event of death. The benefit is designed to assist with the cost of your funeral and other final expenses. 

Medibank Funeral Insurance provides a lump sum payment only, meaning this insurance does not offer any funeral, burial or cremation services. 

How much does a funeral cost?

The cost of a funeral can vary between $4,000 and $15,000. Funeral expenses will depend on the type of ceremony and services chosen to be carried out.
