"The bitterest tears shed over graves are for words left unsaid and deeds left undone"
Harriet Beecher Stowe
Benefits are paid usually within 24 hours
One less thing to worry about during this emotional time
What are the benefits to my family when I pre-plan my funeral?

Given the opportunity, most of us prefer to plan for the future. We plan for holidays, marriages, the future education of our children and of course, our retirement.

Dying is as much a part of life as being born. Why? because most of us don’t spend much time thinking about death.

A funeral bond is a safe, simple and effective way to put funds aside that grow in a secure and tax effective environment to help meet the expense of a funeral. Funeral bonds also have significant advantages for means tested Centrelink and Department of Veteran’s Affair pensioners.

Bonuses credited to a Sureplan Policy are not treated as member’s income for tax purposes and not subject to the provisions of income and asset tests.

There are no entry or exit fees and benefits are usually paid out within 24 hours of being advised of the death.

Is my money safe? This is the most common question from our community

Yes. Sureplan is a secure fund. Sureplan has a successful history since 1935 of managing funeral funds.

Sureplan’s investment activities are regulated by the Corporations Act and the Life Insurance Act.

Remember, there are many advantages in planning ahead. Your own peace of mind knowing that you have faced this issue with responsibility, and your family will be spared the additional stress of making funeral arrangements when they are grieving your passing. Your family, like most others could have difficulty in finding sufficient funds within a few days to pay for the funeral.

If you would like to discuss any aspect of pre-planning a funeral or pre-paying a funeral, give us a call. Life is full of uncertainty…for your family’s sake… make the call today.
