Guardian Funeral Insurance

With Guardian Funeral Insurance, you can help the people in your life arrange the perfect farewell when you’re gone. Your family will be entitled to as much as $15,000 if you pass away, or if you are diagnosed with a terminal illness (with less than 12 months to live), you will be entitled to 100% of the benefit amount in advance.  This lump sum payout can assist with your funeral costs or other final expenses, without disrupting you or your family’s financial plans.

When you turn 85, your premiums will end so you can enjoy the rest of your policy (until age 100) at no further cost to you. Or, you can opt for an early cash-out and get 75% of your benefit amount paid to you (this will end your policy and you will no longer be able to make a claim).

A quick payout when it’s needed

Your benefit will usually be paid within 1 business day after making a completed claim and providing all required documents. There’s no need for your family to take time out of their busy schedule.

Cover for terminal illness diagnosis

If you have held your policy for a year and are diagnosed with a terminal illness (with 12 months or less to live), you will receive your benefit amount paid in full, helping you and your family make any desired arrangements ahead of time.

Guaranteed payout when you turn 100

When you reach 100 years of age your cover will end, and you will receive your benefit amount paid in full. So, when you celebrate your century you can rely on Guardian Insurance.

Triple benefit paid for accidental death

Your family’s payout will be tripled if you pass away due to an accident, which can go towards covering additional unplanned expenses during a stressful time.

Flexible options as you get older

When you turn 85, you can choose to keep your policy (until age 100) at no further cost to you, or you can end your cover and cash out 75% of your benefit amount. This could be helpful in case your circumstances or needs change over time.

Single and joint cover options

You can add a spouse or partner to your policy to ensure you are both covered for your funerals when the time comes.

30-day money back guarantee

If you change your mind within 30 days of purchasing your policy and have made no claims, you are entitled to a full refund.

Some things you should know:

  • Cover is only for Accidental Death and Accidental Serious Injury in the first 12 months of your Policy.
  • After the first year of holding your Policy cover includes Terminal Illness with a diagnosis of 12 months or less to live.
  • Accidental Serious Injury expires on the Policy Anniversary after your 75th birthday.
  • There’s no refund of premiums after the cooling off period. The total amount of premiums payable over the life of the Policy has the potential to exceed the cover amount.
