Sureplan Gold – Funeral Bond

At Sylvan Funerals, we believe every member of the community should be entitled to rest easy with reliable, trusted funeral cover regardless of age. That’s why we recommend Sureplan Gold Funeral Bond – a safe and secure funeral bond for over 55s. Funeral bonds are simple and tax effective ways of growing your funds in a secure environment to meet the expense of funerals. Funeral bonds also have significant advantages for means tested Centrelink and Department of Veterans’ Affair pensioners.

How does a Sureplan Gold Funeral Bond Work?

Sureplan Gold Funeral Bonds work in a similar way to a savings account as bonuses can be added to whatever you invest. As an example, if you were to invest $5,000 in a funeral bond and it returned an annual bonus rate of 5% p.a. for that year, your total investment would grow to $5,250. With your money secured, funeral preplanning can be taken care of easily and efficiently. (Please note that no indication of bonus rates is implied in the above example as the ability to pay a bonus and any future bonus rates will be reflective of the prevailing market conditions at that time).

Benefits of a Sureplan Gold Funeral Bond include:

  • Security: The Sureplan Gold Funeral Bond currently invests in cash and “AA” rated, low-risk securities meaning that you can have peace of mind in knowing your funds will grow in a sound and reliable manner.
  • Flexibility: you can start with as little as $50 and contribute as little as $20 per month from then on.
  • Maximise your pension: if you are an income or asset tested pensioner you may be able to increase your pension as the amount of capital you invest in Sureplan Gold, up to a maximum of $11,250, is not assessable for pension purposes.
