Why use the Funeral Trust?

The Funeral Trust is a prearranged funeral plan available through members of the Funeral Directors Association of New Zealand.

The Trust has been established to assist you to make arrangements for your funeral, or the funeral of another person such as a family member. The Funeral Trust is not an insurance policy. No health checks or personal questions are needed.

The plan operates under a Trust Deed that sets out the rules and conditions of the plan.
