ABORIGINAL COMMUNITY FUNERAL PLAN
ACBF Group Holdings Pty Ltd and Subsidiary Companies are a private company. We are not an Aboriginal company. We are not owned or operated by or associated with any governmental or similar body or any Aboriginal organisation.
Aboriginal Community Funeral Plan is a funeral related expenses plan. It is not a savings plan/account. You may not receive a refund after the 30-day cooling-off period. Funeral Plan Holders may pay more than their benefit amount. If payments are not maintained, you may forfeit your funeral related expenses cover.
The Aboriginal Community Funeral Plan – or The Plan as we will call it – is based in Coolangatta on the Gold Coast. The Plan has been providing funeral cover for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities around Australia for over 25 years.
We have over 20,000 members across Australia and have been able to help hundreds of families with their funeral and related expenses when a loved one passes away.
ACBF was formed in the 1980s, when, in response to requests from Aboriginal workers to assist them in meeting the costs of funerals, we set up a series of funds to help pay for them. Sadly, many members of the community found themselves unable to pay for funerals which simply added to their grief.
Because of legislation, we were unable to offer membership for a scheme to pay towards the costs associated with funerals. As a result of this, we formed ACBF to help the Aboriginal community, and this is what we now call ‘the plan.’
As a company with strong ties to the Indigenous people of Australia, we recognise and acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work. Particularly, we acknowledge the Yugambeh people of the Bundjalung nation, who are the traditional custodians of the lands where our offices are located.
We pride ourselves on the personal touch when dealing with all of our customers and their questions. Our team are very experienced and friendly, and some of our staff have been with us for over 20 years.
We pay out as fast as possible, sometimes within 24 hours providing we have the information we need. One of our proudest achievements is that in over 80% of funeral plans, we pay out more than the person has actually paid in.
