    Why use the FDANZ Funeral Trust?

    The Funeral Directors Association of New Zealand (FDANZ) is an association representing the majority of the funeral companies in New Zealand.  They are committed to ensuring that the families they serve are receiving high quality service.  Its members arrange and direct over 80% of all funerals in New Zealand. A pre-paid funeral organised through the FDANZ Funeral Trust is a secure way to pre-plan your funeral or that of another family member. The FDANZ Funeral Trust is not an insurance policy.  No health checks or personal questions are needed.

    Benefits of Pre-Paying a Funeral

    • A pre-paid funeral through the FDANZ Funeral Trust will give you peace of mind knowing that your wishes regarding your funeral are documented, your funeral details are in good hands and the financial burden has been addressed.
    • Security of funds – the money that you pay now for your pre-arranged funeral is held in Trust for the nominated participant in the FDANZ Funeral Trust.
    • Interest accumulated is tax-paid and does not affect any pension or superannuation you receive.
    • Up to $10,000 in a pre-paid funeral plan is excluded from asset testing (under current government policy) when assessing eligibility for a subsidy for long term residential care for the elderly.
    • Your family and loved ones are relieved of the responsibility of making difficult decisions in a very emotional time.
