Youpla Group Funeral Benefits Program
Show close time for other time zones
The program addresses the urgent need to allow families with deceased loved ones who were insured under a Youpla Group funeral expenses policy to mourn and conduct Sorry Business with the dignity that had been intended. The program is consistent with the Australian Government’s ongoing commitment to improve outcomes for First Nations people.
The program will pay a grant in place of a funeral benefit that would otherwise have been paid in response to the death of a person covered by a Youpla Group policy, where the policy was active on or after 1 April 2020, prior to the Youpla Group’s collapse. Applications will be open from 7 September 2022 and will be accepted until 30 November 2023.
The program will be administered in two phases.
Phase One will be administered by the Treasury from 7 September 2022. This will include claims that have already been made to the liquidator of the Youpla Group prior to the opening date and applications made up to and including 25 September 2022.
Phase Two will be administered by the Department of Industry, Science and Resources (the department) on behalf of the Treasury. Applications will be open from 26 September 2022 and will include applications made up to and including 30 November 2023.

The objective of the program is to pay grants in place of funeral benefits relating to deceased people covered by Youpla Group policies that will not be paid by the Youpla Group as a result of its collapse. The intended outcome of the program is to allow the families and communities with deceased loved ones covered by eligible Youpla Group policies to mourn them and conduct Sorry Business with the dignity that had been intended.
To be eligible you must be the expected recipient of a funeral benefit of a Youpla Group policy, where the policy:
- was active on or after 1 April 2020 and
- insures the life of another person (the nominee) and that other person has died.
