What is a prepaid funeral?

Prepaying is a simple and popular option at Southern Cross Funerals, as it allows you to lock in your funeral at today’s prices, with no future payments required.

Much like making a will or taking out life insurance, prepaying your funeral takes care of the future. It also allows you to personalise your funeral and to make sure your exact wishes are carried out.

It also relieves your loved ones of the financial and emotional burden of them having to organise the service themselves, offering them peace of mind in their time of grief. The cost of a prepaid funeral will vary depending on the inclusions. Once paid in full there is no more to pay unless additional inclusions are incurred.

There are many choices that need to be carefully considered, and our experienced staff can help advise you on the best options for your needs and budget.

Prepaying your funeral

Southern Cross Funerals offers a guaranteed price for prepaid funerals. This protects your family from any future price increases that may occur on the funeral arrangements you have selected.

You can prepay for your funeral upfront or in convenient instalments over a three year period. Once your contract is paid in full, Guardian Plan is responsible for the delivery of your selected funeral arrangements. Guardian Plan is a subsidiary of InvoCare Limited ABN 42 096 437 393, a listed Australian public company and Australia's largest provider of funeral services. Also, the money you pay into the plan will not affect your pension as it is not subject to income or assets testing.

If you would like an obligation-free chat to discuss any of these options simply give us a call on (03) 9558 4399 and a representative will talk you through the options and costs. Alternatively, you can submit an enquiry using our online form.
