Ease the stress on your family. Pre-plan your funeral now and talk to them about your wishes early.

The time to discuss your funeral plan is well before it’s actually needed. Our friendly team is here to help you navigate the funeral planning process and answer any questions you might have. We can also suggest the right amount of money to set aside for it.

We recommend involving your family in this process, letting your loved ones share their ideas and contribute to your plans. While you may not be overly concerned about what your funeral looks like, it’s important to remember that a funeral is often quite significant for those who are left behind. When the time comes, your funeral can play an important role in the way your family processes and grieves your loss.

You choose how you’d like to be celebrated

Pre-planning your funeral allows you to think about how you want to be celebrated and remembered. You can make a choice between burial or cremation, pick an urn or casket that aligns with your personality, and decide on floral arrangements, music, and other aspects of the service.

How much will my pre-planned funeral cost?

The cost of a funeral usually ranges from $4,000 to $15,000, depending on whether you go for burial or cremation and the extra services you choose. To give you peace of mind, we recommend starting to put away funds for your funeral now. Check out the FAQs below for more information about how to do this.

Our recommendation is to allocate funds into a securely invested funeral bond and designate it to Logan Funerals. Our team will provide you with an estimate of your funeral’s cost, which can help you set your preferred investment amount. You can make a lump sum payment into a funeral bond or set up regular instalments, with payments directly debited from your chosen bank account. Our staff will also discuss cemetery and crematorium expenses with you.

Funeral bonds are managed investments that accrue interest. They are established to set aside funds for future funeral expenses. These funds can only be accessed after your passing, to cover your funeral costs. Any excess funds beyond the funeral expenses will be returned to your estate. In cases where the bond doesn’t cover the full amount, your family will be responsible for the remaining balance. Funeral bonds can offer financial security, sparing your family from raising substantial funds on short notice.

It’s important to note that Centrelink does not consider funds up to $15,000* in a funeral bond as assessable assets. Please verify the information, and your eligibility, with Services Australia.

Pre-planning your funeral and securing funds now relieves your family of the financial and logistical burdens later on. You can rest assured that your wishes will be honoured, and your family will have the necessary financial resources to cover your funeral expenses.

A funeral bond accumulates interest over time and is intended to cover the actual cost of the funeral upon its provision. Any surplus funds, after all funeral expenses, are returned to your estate. If the bond doesn’t cover the full cost, your family will need to cover the remainder.

Funeral insurance, on the other hand, involves ongoing premiums paid to maintain coverage until it’s needed to cover funeral costs. However, due to the continuous payments, you may end up paying more in premiums than the actual funeral value. We recommend you calculate potential funeral insurance costs and consider whether securely investing those amounts in a funeral bond is a better option.

Logan Funerals has been serving families since 1979, making it highly unlikely that we would cease operations. However, if such a scenario were to occur, you could easily reassign your funeral bond to another funeral director.

We have a sister company that operates in Melbourne and could transfer your bond there if you moved to Victoria. If you were to move to another state or territory, we could simply transfer your funeral bond to a service provider in your new location.

In the event of a death occurring outside our service area, we can arrange for the transportation of your body to Logan Funerals. Please note that this may incur additional transportation fees.

If you’re traveling abroad and have travel insurance, you may have included coverage for the ‘repatriation of the body of the deceased.’ This coverage can typically offset any associated costs.
