More on the benefits of prepaying
A prepaid funeral is a sensible alternative to funeral bonds and funeral insurance.
By prepaying the funeral you plan the details of the funeral service ahead of time and pay it off over a number of months or even years.
With a prepaid funeral you can relax, knowing your money is held safely in a trust while you go back to enjoying life.

A prepaid funeral vs funeral insurance
Three reasons a prepaid funeral could save you money:
- Lock in costs at today's prices - it's a fixed price funeral and you avoid rising costs from premiums or inflation going up over the years.
- No ongoing payments - once paid in full there are no other costs. Funeral insurance requires ongoing payment of premiums or your cover ceases.
- No waiting period on benefits with a prepaid funeral - funeral insurance providers do not offer this.
