Pre Paid Funerals

Pre-Paid Funerals Plan

Most of us plan ahead – we plan for holidays, marriages, the future education of our children, and of course retirement. Dying is as much a part of life as being born, but most of us avoid funeral planning.

We can discuss with you the best option for your particular circumstances.  All funds are securely kept in a funeral bond until required.  Contributions can either be made as a lump sum or with regular deposits from as little as $50 a month.

The Government has announced changes to the Assets Test that will apply to pension entitlements from 1 January 2017. An investment in a funeral bond, such as Sureplan Gold, is exempt from the Income and Assets Test providing no more than two funeral funding arrangements are held and together they do not exceed the maximum eligible investment threshold (currently $12,500).

Therefore for those affected, an investment in a Funeral Bond for the maximum allowable amount of $12,500 may increase a pension entitlement by $975 per year. For a couple, each partner can invest $12,500 which may result in a combined increase in pension of $1,950 per annum or $75 per fortnight.

Pre-Arranged Funeral Services

There has been an increasing trend for people to pre-arrange funerals to ensure their wishes are met and to ease their family’s burden in their time of loss. Unlike a pre-paid funeral, a pre-arranged funeral does not require payment at the time of the arrangement. It is merely a way to document your wishes and relieve your loved ones of having to decide what it is you would’ve liked. Do you prefer Cremation or Burial, religious or non-religious? What type of flowers you like? Is there music you would like played which has a meaning to you and your family? Pre-Arranging is your chance to organise the service you want.

This evening, we write this post as a result of an article that was published in today's edition of the Daily Telegraph.
We don't intend to go into detail, other than to say that it had nothing to do with our company in any way. However, we believe that in view of the content, a few things need to be clarified, to reassure all our clients, families and indeed the general public of our position on a few points.
Nepean Valley Funerals is a Local, Family owned business, owned and operated by our Family. We have a strict code of conduct and ethics that is adhered to at all times by us and our staff. We never have, nor would we ever even consider to solicit doctors, aged care facilities or anywhere else to try and attain your business. This sort of activity goes totally against all our personal and professional beliefs and conduct and ethics standards. We believe that every family should have the right to choose a funeral director of their choice, who they're most comfortable with, and to do so without influence. This is not a job to us, it is our vocation, a privilege to care for our families and the loved ones that they have lost with the utmost dignity, respect and compassion at all times. A funeral director should always be a trusted professional, a person that you can turn to for help in your time of loss, and we take great pride in being those people.
