PREPAID FUNERALS

by Olsens Farewells

Prepaying your farewell is a safe, proactive, and cost-effective way to ensure a custom farewell.
It alleviates your family of the emotional and financial burden of planning your farewell,
while giving you control over all the essential choices.

With Olsens prepaid options, you can work with our skilled advisers to plan a personalised
farewell based on your unique vision.

Besides reducing the strain on your loved ones, our prepaid offering has many financial benefits such as fixed price, maximisation of pension entitlements and capped costs.

Your farewell, your way, with an Olsens prepaid funeral          

 

Unlike the traditional prepaid funeral, we created personalised prepaid funerals that simplify the farewell process and give you the funeral you want at a comfortable price.

We specialise in helping our community pre-plan and prepay for their personalised funeral, whether it be a simple one or something more.
