How much could you save by pre-paying your funeral?

Use the calculator below to estimate how much you could save on rising funeral costs, if you pre-pay today. In 2015, one Victorian government authority predicted funeral costs to rise by 6% annually at least until 2019. The costs of a funeral rises greater than CPI because of higher labour and property costs.

When using the calculator, it is best to enter your Age and Life Expectancy and Expected Funeral Costs in the text box to the right of the slider. When making any changes to the numbers entered, remember to click the “Get Results” button.
