Suncorp funeral insurance: Our verdict

  • In addition to a couple of loyalty discounts, Suncorp offers you the chance for an early payout following your 85th birthday.
  • Suncorp doesn't set a maximum expiry age limit. So, your policy will remain active so long as you keep up with your premium. This isn't the case among all the competition.
  • You can't add terminal illness cover onto your policy. You can do so with Apia, Medibank, Real Funeral and Seniors Funeral Insurance.
