Preplan Options:

We plan for almost every financial situation that we may encounter in life with things like house insurance, health insurance and income protection which, with a bit of luck, we may never need.

But when it comes to funerals, which at some point in the future we will definitely need, most of us don’t like to think about it let alone plan for it.

At Scotts, we can assist you to preplan or pre-arrange your funeral. We can also assist if you want to prepay some, or all, of your funeral.

We find that people who pre-arrange their own funeral often experience a huge sense of relief knowing that they don’t have to worry about it again. It’s an opportunity for you to make sure everyone understands your wishes and to prevent any financial burden to your family.

The hardest part is making the decision to talk to a Funeral Director but we encourage you to call us because the best time to make these plans is when you have a clear mind and are not under any emotional pressure. Talking to us costs nothing and you’re under no obligation to proceed.

If you’re being assessed for eligibility of a subsidy for long term residential care, It’s worth knowing that prepaid funerals of up to $10,000 are currently excluded from asset testing.
