Blog / Aged Care

This can benefit people who are:

  • paying an ongoing means tested fee
  • paying an accommodation contribution
  • whose social security entitlements are reduced under either the assets or income test

Potential Benefits:
  • Amounts invested in a pre-paid funeral or burial plot are asset and income test exempt, regardless of the amount invested

Things to be aware of:
  • Pre-paid funerals and burial plots are not financial investments. People should take care entering contracts and ensure adequate consumer protections are in place.
