Pre-Paid Funerals

There are two methods of planning ahead for a funeral which are offered by Maurer Family Funerals.


Pre paid Funeral Plan is a written contract between you and Maurer Family Funerals. It details the funeral service of your choice and you pay for it at today’s prices.

Points to consider are:

  • You decide on the funeral service that you want
  • You receive a written contract documenting your wishes
  • You pay for it at today’s prices – you know exactly what your financial commitment is and there is no more to pay
  • You answer all the funeral questions now many of which your loved ones may struggle with in the future
  • You protect your loved ones from both financial and emotional stress
  • Your investment is not deemed an asset so it can help maximise your pension entitlements
  • You are not limited in the amount you invest
  • Maurer Family Funerals allow you to pay for your plan by instalments over a three year period
  • Your investment is held at arm’s length from Maurer Family Funerals


The  Funeral Bond is a capital guaranteed investment with the specific purpose of  being able to contribute towards future funeral expenses.

Points to consider are:

  • It is a secure investment in your name
  • It helps relieve the stress and the financial burden of funeral expenses
  • You can invest up to $13,500 (indexed annually)
  • The bond grows in value as it enjoys annual bonuses
  • Monies invested are not deemed part of your assets nor bonus payments part of your income for pension purposes
  • You can invest as little as $25 per month when making regular contributions
  • Should you stop making payments at any time then the money is retained in the fund in your name
  • Monies invested in a funeral bond must be used to contribute towards the cost of your funeral
  • A funeral bond can be taken out in joint names
  • You can nominate Maurer Family Funerals as your preferred funeral director
  • Your investment is portable and moves with you should you change your place of residence
  • A funeral bond is an effective investment vehicle through which you can financially protect your loved ones.
