The death of a loved one is a difficult time for all involved and having to make important decisions can be very overwhelming. You can eliminate some of this stress by planning and paying for your cemetery arrangements in advance. This will not only provide comfort to your family and friends, but it will also provide them with peace of mind knowing that your exact wishes are being fulfilled.
Here at Centennial Park we’ve developed a simple, but comprehensive pre-paid solution that offers you and your family great flexibility and choice.
Planning ahead is available for chapel, burial and cremation services at Centennial Park. You can pay for any of these in advance, in today’s dollars at today’s prices, to take care of some of the decisions that need to be made at a difficult time for families.
There May Also Be Financial Benefits
Although the driving motivation of pre-planned cemetery arrangements is peace of mind – particularly for your family, there may also be some financial benefits.
By pre-paying now, you pay at 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
Something that feels right today, may not for any number of reasons feel right tomorrow. So, if after purchasing and receiving your Pre-paid Products and Services Certificate from Centennial Park, you change your mind, we will refund your money.
We include a five-business-day cooling off period from receipt of 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 request a refund of your Interment Right 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.
Our team can assist you step by step with your pre-planning options. Please provide your details below and one of our team members will contact you.
