Pre Planning

The Funeral Trust

A Funeral Trust allows you to set money aside to be used to cover some if not all of your funeral costs. The amount that you choose is entirely up to you. Some people consider around $10000.00 which is the threshold for Residential Care Subsidy Asset Testing purposes. The Funeral Trust is run completely independently and can be used at any Funeral Directors Association of New Zealand registered funeral home should circumstances change.

Pre Arrangement Planning

While some prefer not to talk about death, discussing and recording your funeral requests can alleviate much of the anxiety for those left behind. Take the time to record your wishes and leave a lasting gift to your loved ones. You are welcome to meet with one of our experienced funeral directors to discuss some of the options available. We can keep your requirements on file here or you can keep them in a safe place.

We recommend you tell your family that you have made some pre-arrangements with us. For more detailed information on some of the options available please click on the link below.
