About the Funeral Trust

The Funeral Directors Association of New Zealand (FDANZ) is an association representing the majority of the funeral directing firms in New Zealand.  Its members arrange and direct over 80% of all funerals in New Zealand.

The FDANZ Funeral Trust is a prepaid funeral plan that allows people to both preplan and prepay their funerals.  Funds are held and invested by a Trust and paid out after the funeral service has been delivered.  

The FDANZ Funeral Trust (the Plan) is the only prepaid funeral plan endorsed by the Funeral Directors Association of New Zealand Inc. The Trust has been established by FDANZ to assist anyone to make arrangements for their funeral, or the funeral of another person such as a family member.  

A Trust Deed set up by FDANZ in 2010 governs the Plan, which is currently administered by a third party, Gallagher Bassett NZ Limited.
