Pre-Paid Funerals

 

 

As a Modern Society we are always planning ahead for so many of life’s situations such as planning for our retirement, accident cover, private health cover, life insurance, holidays and the list goes on. What about our Funeral Arrangements?

 

Here are 7 Good Reasons as to Why Pre-Pay Your Funeral

 

 

  1. The Funeral Plan you choose is tailored to your personal needs and wishes.
  2. It gives you and your family peace of mind.
  3. It relieves an enormous amount of emotional and financial stress on your family.
  4. You purchase your Funeral Bond at today’s prices which means the price of your funeral is fixed forever, regardless of inflation or future funeral price increases.
  5. Your funeral investment is considered exempt from the Centrelink Income and Assets Tests, therefore protecting your pension entitlement.
  6. Your pre-paid money is invested with “Funeral Plan Management” a subsidary of "Lifeplan Funds Management" in a safe and secure Funeral Bond in your name, and the money can only be redeemed upon death.
  7. There a 2 methods of payment. You can pay either in one lump sum or pay by monthly instalments over 1, 2 or 3 years, interest free.
