The Youpla Group, (formerly Aboriginal Community Benefit Fund), went into liquidation in March 2022.

To help the families of fund members affected by the collapse, the Australian Government is running the Youpla Group Funeral Benefits Program.

The Program will pay a grant in place of a funeral benefit that would otherwise have been paid by the Youpla Group before its collapse. You can apply for the Program if your loved one has passed away and they were a Youpla Group or Aboriginal Community Benefit Fund member on or after 1 April 2020. Applications can be made up to 30 June 2024. If the member’s funeral has already been paid for, you can still make an application.

The Program will pay an amount up to the cover limit of the member’s Youpla Group or Aboriginal Community Benefit Fund policy. For more information you can call 1800 296 989, email or visit
