Pre Arranged Plans
Why would 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.
What is a Funeral Bond?
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?
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.
