Pre-planning your own funeral has many benefits for you and your loved ones. While many of us may feel a bit overwhelmed at the thought of our own mortality and the idea of arranging our own farewell, there are such benefits as:
Take some of the logistical and financial stress from your family by planning the funeral ahead of time.
Plan the funeral you want
Planning ahead allows you to choose the type of service, location, music, flowers and other details that reflect your personality and values.
What are my preplanning funeral options
This is the first step towards formally documenting your funeral wishes and your family details. There is no financial commitment and it is not a binding contract. Rather it is a guide as to how you want to be remembered and assures those closest to you of your wishes.
We have found this simple step allows peace of mind for your family in the time to come. A copy of your pre-arranged funeral plan will be kept safe with Fry Bros.
This is a written contract which details the funeral service you want and fixes the price at today’s cost. In order to pre-pay your funeral, you will need to decide what your wishes are. Fry Bros will then provide you with an estimate and formally document the Prepaid Funeral Contract. This is when monies are exchanged and your Prepaid is complete.
The advantage of a Prepaid Funeral Plan is that it is not affected by inflation. Prepaid funerals and funeral bonds are not considered an asset with Centrelink.
A Funeral Bond allows you to put money aside to help cover the cost of your funeral. It is not an itemised contract, but rather a “lump sum” to be used to cover your funeral costs at the time of need.
You can invest as little as $25 per month, and stop at any time without penalty. When the time comes to access the Funeral Bond, an invoice for your funeral is written as per your wishes/family instructions and the difference is then reimbursed or invoiced to your estate.
We are in the country of the Worimi, Gamilleroi, Wonnarua, Gweagal, Darkinjung, Biripi & Awabakal peoples. Fry Bros respectfully acknowledge their Elders, celebrate their continuing culture and the living memory of their ancestors.
