If a family member dies as the result of an accident, you may be entitled to financial assistance from ACC. Once a claim is accepted, ACC may be able to offer financial support such as:

  • a Funeral Grant to help with funeral costs
  • a one-off Survivor’s Grant for the spouse and children
  • ongoing childcare payments
  • weekly income compensation

ACC can help bereaved partners, children and other dependants of any person who dies as a result of an accident. The cause of death must be known before ACC can pay any compensation. If there is no inquest after the cause of death is established, ACC payments can be made immediately.
