Prepaying for your funeral is an option for anyone who would like to set funds aside for their funeral. After pre-arrangements are made an itemized list of costs will be put together which can be prepaid into a registered prepaid funeral fund.
What are the benefits of a pre-paid funeral
Prepaying for your funeral saves your family the worry and financial burden at a time that is most difficult. By prepaying a funeral at todays costs, the interest on your investment is designed to cover any increase on costs in the future.
Where do the funds go
Prepaid Funeral Funds are passed onto a Registered Prepaid Funeral Fund. These companies are regulated and audited by government agencies to ensure that all funds which are invested are properly secured. Riverview Funerals uses one of the most reputable Funeral Funds in Australia. Please call or visit us for any disclosure documentation.
What is the process
Once an amount has been finalized on the funeral, funds can be invested directly into the prepaid funeral fund along with submitting the application. A receipt and policy will be sent to you or can be collected from our office. We recommend that you keep this documentation with your pre-arrangement documents.
