Planning Ahead

While no-one wants to think about their death, pre-planning your funeral gives you the peace of mind to know that when the time comes, your family will be guided with professional support, providing a much-needed sense of comfort.

The Benefits

Of Preplanning

There are many benefits for preparing and pre-planning a funeral. There is a peace of mind that comes with knowing all the important decisions regarding your funeral have been made as you want them. Pre-planning helps guide your family, who would otherwise have to make difficult decisions without your support. Also, by making payment provisions, you are taking responsibility for the financial aspects of your funeral. This will relieve your family of this expense at the time of your death.

Should you decide to pre-plan your funeral, it is important to plan the details of the type of service that best suits you. It is wise at this point to understand that while the funeral is about you, it is not for you. It is for those you are leaving behind, and taking some time to consult with them may be prudent.

We have a dedicated team of pre-need specialists who are able to meet with you, either at one of our offices or in the privacy of your own home and regardless of whether you would prefer a traditional religious service with hymns and prayers, or a more contemporary, personalised service, your wishes can be arranged accordingly.

Prepaying Your

Funeral

Choosing the type of funeral and your preferences for other products and services allows us to provide you with an estimate of costs. Payment provision can also be organized at this time. This can be done by either investing the full amount at the time of the pre-plan arrangements or by having an agreed amount debited directly from your bank account each month.

A funeral bond is a way to cater for the eventual costs of a funeral. It is much like a savings account where interest or bonuses are accumulated and compounded over a period of time. Once a bond has been established, after an initial cooling off period, it can only be redeemed upon the death of the bond holder.

Funeral insurance is much like any other term life insurance policy in that you will pay a set premium and receive a defined benefit upon the death of the policy holder. Should you choose Funeral Insurance, be careful to compare products for ongoing costs and premium increases.
