Did you know
According to the Bureau of Statistics, funeral prices increase at an average rate of between 2.5-3% per year.
Essentially this means with each year that passes you will continue to pay more for the service you’d like.
Graveside Burial with standard inclusions*
A Graveside Burial package in 2010 would have cost around $8,107. At today’s pricing the same service would be around $8,358. And looking toward 2030 would cost approximately $11,233.
With the average life expectancy in Australia being around 82 years, that is considerable time for pricing to gain momentum and in turn cost you significantly in the future.
Looking at these figures Pre-paid funeral arrangements are a valuable investment and make good financial sense.
