Funerals are a difficult time for anybody.
With Government Funeral Grants only available for lower-income families and with recent rises in funeral costs, more and more people are rushing to safeguard themselves and their family against the financial burden of having to shell out for a funeral at what could be short notice.
Nowadays, organising a funeral entails all sorts of expenses that you probably hadn’t even considered. From flowers to catering, to estate administration expenses – the total cost quickly adds up. With the average funeral costing between $8,000 and $10,000, even a $2128.10 boost from the government (if you even qualify) unfortunately may not be nearly enough to cover the costs.
If there’s no money saved up, your relatives will likely have to pay for these expenses. Luckily, there’s one simple solution.
Funeral Insurance Can Help Protect Your Family
Funeral Insurance can provide your family with a fast cash payment when you pass away – usually within 24 hours of an approved claim1. It’s one less worry to have during the most difficult of times.
This means that your family can have the support they need to grieve in peace. With a helping hand for these final expenses, they could be free from the stress that haunts so many families during times of bereavement.
Thanks to fixed premiums with some policies, not only will it help relieve you and your loved ones from financial and emotional stress when the time comes, you can also have certainty that your premiums will not increase because you get older.
