About Funeral Bonds
Pre-planning can deliver peace of mind for you and the family. The option of Funeral Bonds is common place today and is an excellent way to clearly communicate your preferences and take much of the burden away from your loved ones at an emotional time, when decisions are difficult to make.

We are often asked, “How safe is a funeral bond?” The answer could not be more simple. A funeral bond is completely secure as it is held in trust under an Act of Government. Your investment is held in a Friendly Society Funeral Benefit Fund which is regulated by the Corporations Act 2001 and the Life Insurance Act 1995.

Bethany Funeral Home offers two excellent plans for persons Under 55 and seniors Over 55. They are flexible and offer you peace of mind. To find out more, book a confidential meeting with our one of our Bethany family and we’ll assist you to discover the benefits and secure a plan, which suits your circumstances.
