Cover for a range of scenarios
After your first year of holding Medibank Funeral Insurance, the benefit is paid for death by any cause as well as diagnosis of a Terminal Illness (or reconfirmed diagnosis after 12 months). Whereas, during the first year, we’ll only pay the benefit for death or serious injury if it’s caused by an accident.
Your benefit triples – to up to $45,000 – if your death is accidental. Accidental Serious Injury Insurance is automatically included in your cover at no extra cost.
Premium cease at age 90
Premiums are waived from age 90 with no further premiums payable.
Australian residents aged between 18 and 79 years can apply, either solo or as a couple.
Funeral insurance works in a similar way to other insurance policies you’re likely to already have.
You choose how much money you would like your policy to cover, and pay a series of regular premiums to cover that amount.
The person you choose as your nominated beneficiary will receive the sum insured (or, in our case, the amount you have paid in premiums if that is greater than the sum insured) in the event of your death.
The money paid out can then be used to pay for anything including your funeral and any other related expenses.
Pre-paid funeral plans
Pre-paid funeral plans work slightly differently. With a pre-paid plan, you’re effectively paying for your funeral in advance. You can choose what your funeral will involve too.
The costs of these plans are generally fixed and it can be difficult to change your plan after commencement. Terms and conditions vary and you should carefully consider the terms of your plan.
No, the premium you pay for your policy is guaranteed to reduce by 3% after each continuous period of five years your policy is in force.
When a life insured on the policy reaches the age of 90, cover for Funeral Insurance continues. However, premiums for that life insured are waived and no further premium payments are required for that life insured.
The premiums paid for funeral insurance are generally not tax deductible and tax will not generally be payable on any benefit paid to individuals under your insurance policy.
As individual circumstances vary, you should consult your professional tax adviser for advice regarding your personal circumstances.
Yes. Once your application is accepted, you are covered 24/7, anywhere in the world, provided you remain an Australian resident.
