Funeral Insurance Benefits

Taking out Woolworths Funeral Insurance is a simple and thoughtful way to help your loved ones when they will need it the most. The policy can provide a lump sum benefit from $3,000 up to $15,000. The benefit will usually be released within 2 business days of receipt of all documentation so your family will have less to worry about. That’s why more people are choosing Woolworths Funeral Insurance.

    Easy to apply
  • Any Australian resident aged between 18 and 79 can take out a policy over the phone. No medicals when you apply - You can choose the level of cover that suits you, from $3,000 right up to $15,000.

  • Reducing premiums

    Your premiums will reduce by 5% every 5 years you hold your policy.

  • Freedom to change your mind 
  • There’s a 30 day “cooling off period”, which means you have 30 days to look over your policy to make sure it suits your needs.

    Premium back guarantee

  • The amount your family receives will be the Benefit Amount OR the total premiums paid – whichever is greater.

Some things you should know

Cover is for Accidental Death only in the first 12 months, then death by any cause thereafter.

If your policy is cancelled and cover ends, no Benefit Amount is payable, and there are no premium refunds after the cooling off period. If you change your cover the premium back guarantee may be affected.
