A Pre-Paid Funeral, also referred to as a Fixed Price Funeral, is one where you and Robert Nelson Funerals establish the funeral goods and services that you wish to contract and pay for now, for provision at a future date.
The cost of a Pre-Paid Funeral is fixed, regardless of future price increases.
Your funds are invested in with Australian Friendly Society in strict accordance with the Funerals Act (1996) and the funds cannot be accessed until the funeral is provided; the funds are invested independently of Robert Nelson Funerals Pty Ltd.
A pre-payment of a funeral does not impact on your pension entitlement, and is not subject to an income or asset test.
A Pre-Arranged Funeral is one where you and Robert Nelson Funerals Pty Ltd establish the funeral goods and services which you may utilise in the future.
Payment of the funeral is made when the service is conducted.
There are a number of benefits that come with pre-paying a funeral:
Pre-paying means that you avoid cost increases in funerals over time.
All funeral arrangements and payments are already settled at the time of need.
All funds pre-paid by you are securely invested with Australian Friendly Society and meet the legal requirements of the Pre-Paid Funeral Act.
Peace of mind your affairs are in order.
