Regulation of Prepaid Funerals in Western Australia
Unlike other states, prepaid funerals are not covered by specific legislation in Western Australia. The WA government is currently considering steps to enact specific legislation to bring it in line with other states. It is legislation that is definitely needed, as it’s currently estimated that $24 million of consumers’ money is being held for prepaid funerals – a figure which is set to continue growing.
As there are no specific laws for prepaid funerals in WA, it’s imperative that you educate yourself fully on prepaid funerals. Generally speaking, you should try to include as much detail as possible about your desired service in the prepaid funeral contract to avoid confusion down the track.
For a list of all the inclusions you should consider, and the terms you should look out for, see our Guide to Prepaid Funerals.
