We’ve got answers to some of the most commonly asked questions about Funeral Insurance.


Momentum Life Funeral Insurance is designed to help your loved ones pay for the cost of your funeral, and other final expenses. This insurance pays a benefit to your chosen beneficiaries when you pass away.

You can choose the benefit you want paid to your beneficiaries – from $3,000 up to $30,000. This benefit is paid quickly, usually within 24 hours of receiving completed paperwork. Cover is for accidental death only in the first 24 months, with full cover thereafter.


After the first 24 months of your cover, your chosen funeral benefit is paid for death by any cause. In the first 24 months we will only pay a benefit if you die as the result of an accident. If we do not pay a benefit for this reason, we will repay all the premiums you have paid us for that insured person, from the cover start date.


Provided you continue to pay your premiums, you can keep your Funeral Insurance for life. What’s more, once you reach age 89, you are no longer required to pay premiums, and your cover continues at no charge.


Your Funeral Insurance policy can cover up to 2 people. These people can be you, your partner or a relative (your parent, grandparent, brother, sister, uncle, aunt, nephew, niece, natural or legally adopted child).


Provided you are a New Zealand resident and are aged 40 – 75, you are guaranteed to be accepted for Momentum Life Funeral Insurance.


In the first 30 days

You have a 30 day cooling-off period from your first premium payment date to make sure this cover is right for you. If no claim is made during this period, you can cancel your policy and receive a full refund of premiums paid by calling 0800 108 108, or emailing a signed cancellation letter to customercare@momentumlife.co.nz.

After the first 30 days

You can cancel your Funeral Insurance policy at any time by calling 0800 108 108, or emailing a signed cancellation letter to customercare@momentumlife.co.nz.

It is important to consider your insurance needs before cancelling your policy. There will be no refund of the premiums you have paid, and if you change your mind at a later date you will need to reapply for cover and the premium you are required to pay may be higher when you decide to recommence your policy.
