Pre-Paid Funerals Ballarat
Why should I pre-pay my funeral?
Many people are now choosing to plan and pre-pay their funerals. By planning ahead they hope to alleviate some of the stress for their families at the time of their death. They know this will be an emotional time and by having a pre-paid funeral the burden of making funeral arrangements is removed from their family.
Pre-paying your funeral is a simple process where all aspects of the funeral service are discussed. Including:
- The type of service you would like to have i.e.; church, chapel or other venue.
- Whether you prefer burial or cremation.
- Which cemetery or crematorium.
- The style and type of coffin or casket.
- Mourning vehicles, flowers and any other services you may like to have included. i.e. RSL or Masonic Lodge.
Once the total cost of the funeral is calculated full payment is required to ensure the price is fixed at the current rate. Options are available to make regular payments into a funeral bond however this may not fix the price of the funeral at current rates.
In accordance with State Government legislation all pre-paid funeral monies are invested in an approved funeral bond with Foresters Financial, which is then assigned to Harrison Funerals. The money you pay for your pre-paid funeral plan is held at arms length and safeguarded until such time as the funeral service is held and a death certificate provided.
