Prepaid Funerals

 

Prepaid Funerals

A Prepaid funeral is a funeral that is planned and paid for in advance taking advantage of today's prices. This gives you complete control over your own service requirements.

To ensure your instructions are carried out, we work with you to put together a Prepaid Funeral Agreement which specifies all your individual wishes for when the service is required.

 

Our Prepaid Funeral Plan Offers

  • The Guarantee that all your wishes will be carried out in detail, in a dignified and meaningful way as specified on a properly prepared Agreement
  • The means of relieving the emotional stress and any financial burden placed on families at the time of bereavement.
  • The assurance that the funeral you desire is fully paid for regardless of cost increases between now and when the funeral actually takes place.
  • Total security on your investment which is held by an approved independent agency.

We purchase an approved funeral bond in your name under the provision of "THE FUNERALS ACT 2006", an Act of parliament of Victoria. The act specifies how and where your money is to be invested and our obligations and responsibilities as your nominated funeral director.

The government minister responsible may and does from time to time direct the Department to inspect and audit our records and those of the approved holding agency.

 

The Cost

Australian Friendly Society Funeral Bonds And Prepaid Funerals

The cost of a funeral depends on a number of individual requirements. Contact us for an accurate obligation free quotation.

After paying Cemetery fees (where applicable) and GST (as required) the remainder of the money is invested in to a capital guaranteed Bendigo Funeral Bond an investment product of the Australian Friendly Society Limited. The interest accumulates in the account and covers any price increases.

At the time of the service relatives may wish to order extra services e.g. notices, flowers or vehicles. Such additional services, which are not specified in the Agreement, will be charged for at the current, contemporary cost.
