Grieving is difficult enough. Pre-paid funerals ease the financial burden that a death may place on your loved ones.

If you are considering residential care, it is important to note that pre-paid funerals of up to $10,000 are excluded from current asset testing when determining eligibility for subsidy.

The FDANZ Pre-Paid Funeral Trust is an officially endorsed scheme, ensuring a lump sum is available to cover the cost of a funeral whenever it is needed.

This does not oblige you to select a funeral director in advance, as funds are held in a Westpac bank trust account under the participant name until required.

Acceptance is guaranteed with no medical assessment, and the scheme comes with a 21-day ‘free look’ period.
