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. Tailor 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 & Derek was filmed and completed in June, 2015.

Being involved in arranging your own funeral has a number of important benefits:

1. Make your funeral speak to the real 'you' - you can be as detailed in your plan as you wish, be it a unique service of celebration or one in keeping with your faith and culture

2. Make a difficult time easier for family and friends - take away the worry over arrangement details by planning everything from which flowers to the music choices, the coffin and service type in advance

3. Protect loved ones financially - pay for the funeral at today's prices with no more to pay when the time comes to say goodbye
