Key Features of prepaid funerals Cherry Gardens
For funeral expenses only
The investment proceeds can only be released after the death of the life insured to pay for the life insured’s funeral expenses.
You choose how much you wish to contribute, and you are free to change your saving program at any time. And crucially, as you do not have to make compulsory payments (as with funeral insurance plans). You can either invest a lump sum or make regular or ad-hoc deposits from as little as $50 per month. Therefore, it can be an ideal funeral saving plan.
Predictable and secure
Once paid, your fixed price funeral expenses of your funeral service are locked in at today’s prices and documents how you want your funeral to be undertaken and is subject to the terms and conditions of your contract with your funeral director. Under prepaid funeral legislation, your investment must be securely invested in an approved fund, such as our Fund. Ownership of your investment is then transferred or assigned to your funeral director by way of payment for your funeral service.
Help to maximise your pension
Funeral costs you set aside in the Plan do not count in your assets test for payments from Services Australia (i.e. Age Pension, Carer Payment or Disability Support Pension).
Protect loved ones from inheriting your funeral costs

At a challenging and emotional time for your family and your loved ones, having these decisions already decided can help to ease both financial and emotional stress.
