Pre-planning helps family

Sue Marshman and Alyson Burchell offer guidance to celebrate life.

Death is no longer a taboo subject.

People are increasingly open to planning for their funerals. For some the motivation is to avoid leaving a financial burden for their families, while others want to ensure their service wishes are fulfilled.

Regardless of the motivation, it’s important to seek advice. The differences between funeral insurance and pre-paid funerals are significant and worth understanding.

Recent advertisements have promoting funeral insurance coverage from as little as a few dollars a week. It sounds too good to be true, and in many instances it is too good to be true.

A recent expose identified a number of issues for pensioners who had taken out funeral insurance. In some cases they had paid more into the insurance than the benefit would pay out on their death.

Worse still, they had to keep paying until their death or the policy might turn invalid.

Tuckers Funeral & Bereavement Service prides itself on providing clarity, support and advice when listening to families and their needs.

Tuckers offers the opportunity to plan ahead with the clear benefits of a pre-paid funeral rather than funeral insurance.

Clients have peace of mind that their plans will lock in funeral prices at today’s cost, relieving their families of financial burdens and stress.

Tuckers’ clients can plan the funeral they want. The plans have no premiums or expiry dates, and the funds are held safely in a trust for families to use when necessary.

Tuckers’ Sue Marshman and Alyson Burchell are passionate about helping people achieve peace of mind with pre-funeral planning and confidence that their chosen funeral director will support and lead their family through all arrangements.
