How soon will my funeral cover pay out?

When someone dies, you want to send them off in style ⚰️🎉. Funeral cover is designed to give you an immediate lump sum payout 💰so you don’t have to worry about the upfront costs of the funeral or other end-of-life expenses.

You'll need to give us certified copies ✅of all the paperwork as listed in your policy document, and once we get that, we try to pay out within 48 hours wherever possible ⏱. In practice, you’ll probably get the cash within 4 hours of submitting a claim, although we might take a bit longer if we suspect fraud and need to investigate 🔎.

But, usually, we just need some proof nobody’s faking their own death 👻, and we’ll get the cash to you ASAP after that.
