Prepayment options towards your funeral

As well as preplanning, you might consider paying towards your funeral now*.
This may help ease the financial burden for your family later. Any monies prepaid are held in trust for you or your nominee by the
Funeral Directors Association of New Zealand or the Public Trust Funeral Trust.

  • It helps protect your pension
    Under current Government policy, prepaid funerals up to $10,000 are excluded from asset testing when assessing subsidy eligibility in long-term residential care for the elderly.

  • Prepayment helps to provide peace of mind
    You contribute towards the cost of the funeral now, to help relieve your family of the financial burden later on.

    • Recording your Choices
      You make the choices – the music, the readings, the venue etc, and we will record these so that your wishes are known when the time comes.

  • You can still change your arrangements
    Your wishes are carefully documented when you preplan or prepay towards a funeral with Beth Shan Funerals, and you receive a copy for your records. You are able to change any of these arrangements at a later date if you wish. If the funeral is to be in another town, we can arrange for your instructions to be transferred.

  • No health checks are needed
    The FDANZ Funeral Trust is not an insurance policy. No health checks or personal questions are needed. Anyone, of any age or health status, can prepay towards a FDANZ Funeral Trust funeral with Beth Shan Funerals.

*An estimate cost for the funeral you want can be given, however this figure is not price fixed and is subject to inflation.
