PLANNING your own funeral or memorial service can provide peace of mind to you and your family and could also mean you safeguard more of your pension to enjoy in your retirement.
A Guardian Plan Prepaid Funeral takes the emotional and financial responsibility away from your family and gives you the reassurance everything has been set to your wishes.
It is paid for at today’s prices and incurs no further costs when the holder of the prepaid contract passes away.
A prepaid funeral also allows you to plan the service you want ensuring it reflects the life that has been lived, and the money is held safely in a trust.
Regardless of its value, a prepaid funeral is also exempt from asset testing and thus is a great way to reduce your assessable worth, potentially safeguarding the pension seniors receive at the end of the day.
Prepaying your funeral can offer significant savings compared with funeral insurance.
Premiums for funeral insurance can start small, but often rise as you age and you need to continue paying premiums to remain covered.
With a prepaid funeral, you pay once at current costs offering better value for money.
Families are encouraged to take the time to find the best suited funeral packages for them.
