The Australian Government Youpla Group Funeral Benefits Program has been extended to 30 June 2024.

The Youpla Group, also called the Aboriginal Community Benefit Fund, collapsed in March 2022.

The Youpla Group Funeral Benefits Program (the Program) helps the families of fund members who have passed away to conduct Sorry Business with dignity.

The Program will pay a funeral benefit for a person who has passed away that was a fund member on or after 1 April 2020. If the member’s funeral was already paid for, you can still make an application.

The Program will pay the cover limit of the member’s Youpla Group policy.

Applications can be made up until 30 June 2024.
