Resources for Financial assistance
If death was by accident or injury, ACC may be able to help out with the costs of burial or cremation and related ceremonies. This grant can be for New Zealanders and overseas visitors, and the funeral need not be in New Zealand. The grant can be used for memorial costs if no body is recovered.
Air New Zealand offers compassionate airfares to immediate family needing to change existing bookings or those living out of town needing to travel to another centre for a funeral service. There is a reduction on full or higher priced fares but not on some lower priced fares below the compassionate airfare level. Typically you would apply for a refund after travelling, supplying the necessary documentation.
