There are numerous benefits to pre-planning your funeral and cemetery arrangements. Pre-planning provides an opportunity to relieve some of the emotional and financial stress that is associated with the loss of a loved one. Additional benefits include;

  • financial sensibility because you can fix the price of your funeral and cemetery costs at today’s prices
  • allows for choice including the ability to choose your desired burial or memorial position
  • your exact wishes are made known
  • under current legislation any money spent on pre-paying funeral expenses is exempt from asset and means testing
  • you can choose your preferred funeral director
  • pre-planning reassures you and your family, and protects your family from unnecessary stress during a difficult time
