What is a prepaid funeral?

Prepaying is a simple and popular option at W.D. Rose & Joseph Allison Funerals, as it allows you to lock in your funeral at today’s prices, with no future payments required.

Much like making a will or taking out life insurance, prepaying your funeral takes care of the future. It also allows you to personalise your funeral and to make sure your exact wishes are carried out.

It also relieves your loved ones of the financial and emotional burden of them having to organise the service themselves, offering them peace of mind in their time of grief.

There are many choices that need to be carefully considered, and our experienced staff can help advise you on the best options for your needs and budget. The cost of a prepaid funeral will vary depending on the inclusions. Once paid in full there is no more to pay unless additional inclusions are incurred.

Pre-arranging your funeral

Pre-arranging is an easy option that enables you to set out your precise wishes regarding your funeral service. We can discuss your wishes in detail and make a permanent record for future reference. A copy of this form will be kept on file by W.D. Rose & Joseph Allison Funerals. You should also consider sharing it with your family, so you can rest assured that you have left clear instructions to ease the burden and pressure on those left behind at the time of your passing.

Pre-paying your funeral

While pre-arranging your funeral ensures your wishes can be carried out, pre-payment can relieve the financial burden on your family. W.D. Rose & Joseph Allison Funerals offers a guaranteed price for pre-paid funerals. This protects your family from any future price increases that may occur on the funeral arrangements you have selected.

You can pre-pay for your funeral upfront or in convenient installments over a three year period. Once your contract is paid in full, Guardian Plan is responsible for the delivery of your selected funeral arrangements. Guardian Plan is a subsidiary of InvoCare Limited ABN 42 096 437 393, a listed Australian public company and Australia's largest provider of funeral services. Also, the money you pay into the plan will not affect your pension as it is not subject to income or assets testing.

If you would like an obligation-free chat to discuss any of these options simply call us and a representative will talk you through the options and costs.
