Costs of funeral, burial and cremation
Standard costs we can help with are for funeral, burial and cremation.
Costs of transporting body
We may help with costs of taking the body to the place of interment if death was from Qualifying Service, and in a:
- public hospital, or
- private hospital.
The amount we can cover may depend on the total distance travelled for this.
If you get other support
If another government agency, such as ACC, NZDF or Work and Income has made a funeral grant, you can still apply to us. We’ll take into account their grant in deciding what to pay.
