Financial Assistance

Below is a list of places where you may be eligible for financial assistance depending on your individual circumstances.

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.

Compassionate Airfares
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.
