Although difficult to think about, it makes sense to pre arrange funeral details in advance. With a little forethought and pre planning you have the opportunity to relieve some of the financial and emotional stress from those closest to you. You are also provided the option to have your funeral arrangements pre-paid
One of the benefits of pre planning is that it presents an opportunity to have an open family discussion about your preferences. Everyone is then aware of your wishes and knows where the important documents are kept.
Some of the components you can choose are:
- the type and style of funeral
- special features of the service
- which cemetery or crematorium
- how much you want to spend.
A pre-paid funeral is not viewed as part of your personal assets. It is also exempt from the Centrelink and Department of Veteran Affairs Income and Assets Test. Therefore, the investment may improve your pension entitlements.
