Funeral Grants


A Work and Income funeral grant can help pay for some of the costs when someone close to you has died.

Costs such as:

  • Professional services for preparing the body for cremation or burial (eg, embalming).
  • The cost of a casket.
  • Newspaper notice costs.
  • Hearse fees.
  • Compulsory fees for buying a burial plot.
  • Cremation fees.

We are more than happy to provide a free no obligation quote.


When someone dies as a result of an injury, ACC can help towards the costs of the burial or cremation and related ceremonies. A funeral grant can be paid for both New Zealanders and overseas visitors to New Zealand.

The funeral does not have to be in New Zealand, and this grant can also be used for memorial costs if the body is not recovered.

Fountains Funerals & Monuments are able to advise and assist with the particular services available. To read more about funeral grants please click on the below links or talk to a team member.
