Families today are spread across the globe. Parents often worry about siblings attending to their financial affairs when they are not local. More people are moving to retirement homes or into residential care facilities. Pre-payment of funeral expenses is an option where one can deposit up to $10,000.00 into a pre-pay funeral account which is not considered an ‘asset’ for Residential Care Subsidy Asset Testing purposes. There are many options to deposit funds for your funeral. The Funeral Trust is an option that has no direct fees involved so you can rest assured that all of the money set aside will be paid out to cover funeral expenses. For more information please contact one of our team who would be happy to assist.
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.
