Pre-Need Funerals

The Ivan Butler Pre-Need Funeral Plan, allows you to plan for your funeral, according to your personal requirements. Our Plan relieves your family of any unnecessary confusion and financial burden regarding funeral expenses.

Decisions can be made logically and less emotionally about personal wishes and the potential costs, rather than at a time of grief. We will provide you with a detailed estimate of the current costs, to allow you to determine the appropriate amount to invest. At the time of need, we will work with your executors and/or next-of-kin to finalise the funeral arrangements. Investing in a Funeral Bond allows for flexibility at the time of need, regarding the finer details of the arrangements and your personal wishes.

Under the current Pre-Paid Funerals Code of Practice Regulations 2011, all Pre-Paid monies are required to be invested with an approved funeral fund manager. With the option of a Funeral Bond, you can invest any amount from $500.00 and up. If you do receive a means-tested Government benefit, the total amount you contribute should not exceed the ‘exempt funeral investment threshold’, currently $15,000.00.

The decision to invest in a Funeral Bond is of course yours, and you are under no obligation to do so. Alternitavely, you may consider Pre-Arranging your service. This can be done in person with one of our consultants, by completing the ‘Personal Wishes’ section of our booklet, or by completing and submitting the ‘My Wishes’ page on this website. Your requirements can be detailed in the same manner, but without the financial commitment.
