5 Great Reasons to Prepay Your Funeral
Pre-planning your funeral makes sense. It takes the emotional stress off your family, locks in your funeral cost at today’s price, and allows you to plan things your way. Then you can relax, knowing your money is held safely in a trust while you get on with enjoying life to the full.
1. Pay today's price, beat rising costs.
With a prepaid funeral plan you pay today's price and avoid things like inflation and rising premiums. Pay in instalments or upfront, whatever works for you. A prepaid funeral is also exempt from the Centrelink assets test so it can help you qualify for a pension or part pension.
2. No ongoing payments.
With a prepaid funeral you only pay for the funeral you want. No additional costs and no premiums to pay for you or your family. The cost of a prepaid funeral will vary depending on the inclusions. Once paid in full there is no more to pay unless additional inclusions are incurred.
3. Remove the worry, give peace of mind.
When the time comes it's planned and paid for, family and friends won't have to deal with arrangement details or financial concerns, as everything is taken care of.
4. No extensive paperwork or health checks.
We'll walk you through the simple and quick process of preplanning your funeral.
5. Personalise your plan to meet your needs.
Prepaying your funeral service means you get your funeral service, your way.

Why a prepaid funeral was the best choice for Christine & Derek
Christine and Derek made the smart decision to take out a prepaid funeral plan after researching their options online and realising they'd pay much more for a funeral insurance policy, and still not necessarily be able to cover all the funeral expenses.
With their prepaid funeral plan, Christine & Derek know their children will not need to worry about working out what their parents would want or not want, and the level of financial and emotional stress will be taken down.
In the video testimonial below, Christine & Derek explain their choice in their own words.
The video testimonial with customers Christine and Derek was filmed and completed in June, 2015.

Prearranging a Memorial
If you have prearranged your funeral, which covers your funeral service needs, it makes sense to consider prearranging your memorial too. Prearranging a memorial means you secure a permanent memorial type and position in a memorial park cemetery or garden, and pay for it at today's price.
Organising a memorial in advance has a number of financial and emotional benefits. We recommend you speak to the Memorial Park or Garden you are interested in about which memorials they currently have available.
