Funeral Insurance is designed to be paid out within 1-3 days after proof of the claim (death) has being received by the insurer. The very reason people buy this insurance is for the peace of mind knowing the money will be available to meet the costs of the funeral without any delay.
If you are aged 30 to 85 you can obtain funeral insurance regardless of your current or previous health issues. No medical questions asked or check-up required.
With most funeral covers the standard premiums never increase as you age. Some insurers are currently offering promotional discounts for the first 12 or 24 months after which premiums revert to standard.
Our service is totally free to you. The premiums quoted are never more than you would pay if you contacted the insurer directly.
All insurers aim to pay very quickly after receiving proven notification of death, usually anywhere from 1-3 days.
