Why a prepaid funeral?
One of the most thoughtful things one can do for your family is to pre-pay for your funeral. This may provide special financial benefits to pensioners and retirees.

For peace of mind, many people take the next step and pre-pay for their funeral. In Victoria it is a requirement under The Funerals Act 2006 that your funds are placed in a capital guaranteed manner, ensuring that your investment is protected.
Understandably, this thoughtful consideration takes a great load off the grieving family at the time of passing. Loved ones are given the opportunity to mourn their loss without having the additional stress and burden of not being aware of any of the deceased’s funeral wishes. Nor is there a concern regarding payment for the funeral. Some benefits of pre-paying your funeral include-
- Financial – Taking away the financial burden for your loved ones plus at the same time taking advantage of any Centrelink benefits that might be available.
- Organisation – Greatly reducing the amount of time your family will have to spend on difficult administrative matters.
- Focus on family matters – Increasing the time that your family will have together supporting each other at a most difficult time.
- Comfort – You will be reassuring your family that you were prepared. Your thoughtful planning will assist the family to find a level of peace in the days following your passing.
