Pre-planning

There’s no escaping the fact that the loss of someone close to us is a difficult time. The impact, even if the life lived was long and fulfilling, can be overwhelming.

By planning and paying for your cemetery arrangements in advance you give your family the comfort in the knowledge that they are fulfilling your final wishes, while alleviating their financial stress of having to pay for these while grieving.

You’ll also give yourself the immediate comfort of knowing your wishes will be clearly expressed and documented.

Here at Centennial Park we’ve developed a simple, but comprehensive pre-paid solution that offers you and your family great flexibility and choice:

3 step pre planning process

There may also be financial benefits

Although the driving motivation of pre-planned cemetery arrangements is always peace of mind—particularly for your family—there are also may be financial benefits for you.

By pre-paying now you pay today’s prices and avoid future price rises.

Any money you pay towards a burial or memorial position, ancillary cemetery services or costs, or a funeral director’s services, may be exempt from asset and means testing for social welfare purposes, such as pension calculations.

You can even change your mind

We understand that this can be a difficult matter for people to address. Something that feels right today may not—for any number of reasons—feel right tomorrow.

So if, after purchasing your Pre-paid Products and Services Certificate, you change your mind, we won’t hesitate to refund your money.

We include a five-business-day cooling off period for our Pre-paid Products and Services Certificates, and if you request a refund within that period you will be refunded in full. If it’s outside the cooling off period there will be a small administration fee.

You will also be able to refund your Interment Right Certificate as guided by state legislation.

we recommend that you ask your funeral director about the refundability/transferability of any products that you wish to pre-pay with them before entering into any agreement.
