    Apia Funeral Insurance offers between $3,000 – $15,000. Payout is a lump sum and is generally tax free2. There are no restrictions on how this money can be spent. It can help your loved ones cover funeral costs, debts and other expenses.
  • Fast payout
    Payment is usually made within 24 hours of an approved claim, so your family will have one less thing to worry about.
  • 10% bonus cover after 5 years 3
    Bonus cover is provided at no extra cost, as thanks for your loyalty.
  • 5% premium discount
    Get 5% off after 10 years of holding your policy.
  • Early payout option4
    Enjoy the option of receiving 120% of your benefit after your 85th birthday.
  • Value Promise5
    The amount your family receives as payout will depend on the option you select when you take up a policy. Here’s a quick guide: 1) You choose 100% option = payout will be your cover amount or 100% of premiums paid (whichever is greater)
    2) You choose 70% option = payout will be your cover amount or 70% of premiums paid (whichever is greater)
  • Add a family member to your policy6
    Receive a 5% discount when you add another adult to the same funeral insurance policy.
  • Level Premiums7
    Your premium won’t increase with age. It’ll only do so if you choose to increase your Funeral Insurance cover down the track.

Optional extra

Accidental Death Cover 

With Apia Funeral Insurance, you have the option to add Accidental Death Cover. This is paid if you die from an accident, or within six months of the injury. This benefit is paid in addition to your Funeral Benefit. 

What’s not covered?

Your funeral insurance won’t be paid if you die during the first 12 months after your policy commences, due to an accident that occurred prior to the policy start date, a sickness, or as a result of an intentional self-inflicted act. 

Want to know more? This is just a summary, for full details of what is and isn't covered please refer to the Apia Funeral Insurance Product Disclosure Statement (PDS).

Please note, if you cancel your policy or it lapses you’ll lose all your premiums paid up until that date. There are exceptions, such as if you’re struggling to meet your premium payments. If this is the case for you, please call us to discuss your available options.
