Pre-Planning Funeral prepayment
We recommend using the Funeral Directors Association of New Zealand (FDANZ) Trust.
They will hold any prepayment amount in trust for you or your nominee.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF PRE-PAYING YOUR FUNERAL?
Peace of mind: Pre-paying your funeral through FDANZ (the Funeral Directors Association of New Zealand) Funeral Trust will give you peace of mind, knowing that your family are relieved of the financial burden of paying for your funeral.
Security of funds: The money you put aside for your funeral is held in Trust for you or the person you nominate as the participant of the FDANZ Funeral Trust. The FDANZ Funeral Trust has been established by the Funeral Directors Association of New Zealand.
Financial Benefit: Up to $10,000 deposited into the FDANZ Funeral Trust plan is excluded from asset testing (under government policy) when assessing subsidy eligibility in long-term residential care.
Please note: An estimate of cost for the funeral you want can be given. However, this figure is not price fixed and is subject to inflation.
