Sureplan Funeral Insurance

Providing for the cost of your funeral now can save you and your family thousands

Many people leave it until very late in life to make some preparations for their funeral expenses. This can mean they either sign up with one of a number of high-cost funeral insurance options, or they do nothing and leave their family with the worry of finding the average $6,000 to $8,000 to pay for a funeral.

Superannuation will normally not be helpful as it often takes weeks or even months for a claim to be processed.

By commencing a funeral funding plan earlier in life members can literally save thousands and ensure their family is guaranteed to receive the payment promptly and without fuss.

WECU has therefore formed an alliance with Sureplan Friendly Society, a fellow mutual, to assist members of all ages to provide for the cost of a funeral.
