Funerals can be paid in advance, removing any financial concerns the family may have regarding the service
For people entering institutional care, pre-paid funerals up to $10,000 excludes them from asset testing when considering government subsidies.
Croft Funeral Home is pleased to support the FDANZ Funeral Trust, established by the Funeral Directors Association of New Zealand. The fund operates under a Trust Deed that sets out the rules and conditions of the plan. Croft Funeral Home has elected not to receive the joining commission of our clients, saving our clients the $100 fee.
The Trustee has appointed Cosignia Limited to manage some aspects of the Plan on their behalf, including administration and benefit payments. The Trust Account will be maintained with Westpac New Zealand Limited. A 'Certificate of Participation' is provided by Consignia Limited. Croft Funeral Home has access to Consignia's database for our clients and can provide a current balance immediately.
If the Consignia Plan is not to your liking, Croft Funeral Home has access to the Public Trust Funeral Plan as an alternative option.
If we can be of further help in your planning needs please do not hesitate to contact us directly by calling us (24 hours) on 0800 CROFTS / 0800 276 387 or 04 569 7072
