Peace of mind for your family

About Funeral Insurance

Funeral Insurance can help cover the cost of funeral arrangements. You can have peace of mind knowing your family will have one less thing to worry about upon your death.

Funeral Insurance from NZ Cover Direct pays a lump sum benefit on your death, usually within 48 hours of receiving the completed paperwork. This quick payout can help with the immediacy of funeral arrangements, be used to settle any final debts, or provide a financial cushion during this emotional time.

With optional Household Expenses, Accidental Death and Accidental Serious Injury cover, your family can receive added financial support to help cope with your death or if you suffer a serious injury.

Applying for cover

Your acceptance is guaranteed as long as you're a New Zealand resident aged 16 to 75.
