Aldred, my consultant, was excellent; he explained everything in detail. My mate's passing made me get this for myself and my family. I want to be here for a long time, not a short one.

About Real Funeral Insurance

  • Any Australian resident aged 18 - 79 is guaranteed acceptance when it comes to buying this policy.
  • Funeral insurance doesn't exclusively cover funeral expenses. Benefit money can be used for any expense that the recipients choose to use it for. For example, funds can also be used to cover debts from credit cards, personal loans and utility expenses.
  • Once the policyholder turns 85, they can choose to either keep the policy, or cancel the policy and receive 75% of their benefit amount back. This is known as the Early Cash Out option. If they choose to keep the policy, the benefit amount that will be received increases by 25%.
  • If diagnosed with a terminal illness, 100% of a benefit is paid.
  • Flexible payment options include the ability to opt for making fortnightly or monthly payments.

Points of praise

  • Reviewers appreciated the easy sign-up process over the phone. The simplicity of the process included being assisted by friendly and helpful staff.
  • The policy was easy to understand, with no confusing fine print. Any questions were answered clearly by customer service staff.
  • This funeral insurance was described as good value for money, thanks to the affordable premiums. The flexible payment options were also appreciated by policyholders.
