Preplanning your funeral in advance ensures your family knows and understands your recorded wishes, removing the difficult task of making decisions about the funeral service at such an emotional time. When preplanning a funeral we suggest prepaying the funeral costs in order to remove financial burden from family and loved ones.
At Somerville Bros, we offer two funeral prepayment plans through SurePlan Friendly Society, an Australian member-owned company. Unlike normal life insurance policies and most other funeral plans, a Sureplan funeral payout is within 24 hours of receiving advice of the death. Therefore your family will have the benefit funds on hand before there is any requirement to pay for the funeral account.
