When you pre-arrange your funeral, all the necessary information is recorded and put on file until such time as it is needed. A copy of the recorded information is also given to families.
Pre-paying for a funeral has become a very important part of retirement planning. By pre-planning your funeral you provide your family with a sense of security knowing your wishes have been looked after. In addition all primary costs are capped and covered.
What is a pre-paid funeral?
When you pre-pay your funeral, the monies are held in trust with Australian Friendly Society in a Bendigo Funeral Bond and are guaranteed. At the time of death, the Bet-Olam Jewish Funerals account is sent to Australian Friendly Society who will pay this account.
In addition you may also purchase a grave in the Jewish Memorial Gardens. This may be done either with Springvale Botanical Cemetery or through Bet-Olam. If you choose to purchase a plot directly with Springvale Botanical Gardens, you should arrange an appointment with the cemetery by calling 9546-9377. Please ensure you say that you wish to purchase a grave in Jewish Memorial Gardens.
At the time of death, one telephone call enables Bet-Olam Jewish Funerals to begin organising the entire funeral. As all financial arrangements have already been pre-paid, your family is relieved of any additional emotional or organisational strains.
