Preplanning your funeral
Plan a funeral that feels right for you. Understand your options, record your choices, and spare your family worry about arrangements and costs.
The preplanning process
Pre-planning your funeral has three easy steps.
Prepayment towards your funeral
Paying towards your funeral in advance can spare your family worry about costs and give you peace of mind.
It also helps protect your pension. Prepayment towards a funeral for up to $10,000 are excluded from asset testing when assessing your eligibility for residential care subsidies.
Make an appointment with us to discuss your funeral. We’ll help you record your wishes and estimate the cost of your funeral, so you can decide how much to prepay. Please note funeral estimates are not fixed and are subject to inflation.
The Funeral Trust isn’t an insurance policy, so we won’t ask you to answer personal questions or to take any health checks.
