The Funeral Plan For All The Family

The Aboriginal Community Funeral Plan – or The Plan as we will call it – is based in Coolangatta on the Gold Coast. The Plan is part of the ACBF group of companies which have been providing funeral cover for indigenous people around Australia for over 25 years.

The Plan, and all other companies in the group, are proud to be privately owned and run, with no connection to any Government or other organisation. We have over 25,000 clients across Australia and have been able to help hundreds of families with the funeral and related expenses when a loved one passes away.

Our History

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.’

One Community

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 also pay out as fast as possible, often within 24 hours providing we have the information we need. Aboriginal Community Funeral Plans can be taken out for all family members at any time, and with only a few medical questions to answer we make it really easy to apply.

One of our proudest achievements is that in 85% of policies we pay out more than the person has actually paid in.


From $3 Per Week

The Plan starts from as little as $6 per fortnight, depending on the age and health of who is being covered.
