Here's another way we helped a Fair Wealth Australia member when they were let down by others...
George's father died and he was naturally devastated. Then the funeral director put pressure on him to pay for the funeral before the event.
He didn't have the money. So we sought to advance the claim for the insurance, and while we were managing that process, we advanced the money so George didn't have to worry.
It's another example as to how we provide more than just money when our members need us most.
Donald was in his 80s and a more dignified man we've never met.
No words could describe the feeling when we paid towards the funerals of both his beloved sons who died within a week of each other.
We were pleased to help to at least ease his financial stress and anxiety at such a time. No delays. No stress. We made it happen when he needed it.
"Having lost both sons with a week of each other, we were able to pay the money he needed without delay to at least go some way towards easing Donald's stress and anxiety."
"We provided the funds immediately while we awaited the insurance company process so the children were able to do what they needed to do."
Theodore finally took his retirement and went back to his native country where tragically both he and his wife were killed in a car accident.
The family needed to return their parents to Australia and bury them side by side as was their wishes.
We could not delay. We provided the funds immediately while we awaited the insurance company process so the children were able to do what they needed to do. immediately that they needed to do it.
You wouldn't know by looking at him, however, Frank was a war hero. He first came to the fund over an insurance matter after a hailstorm.
He complained of feeling faint and after the welfare officer took him to the repatriation hospital it was discovered that he had a brain tumour. He took medical retirement and paid all of his retirement money towards the house.
After he died the family struggled to put together enough funds for the funeral. With a donation from the Catholic Church, and the balance paid by the fund, he was able to have the burial he deserved.

You may wish to consider a Funeral Savings Fund too.
A Funeral Savings Fund is a savings plan that helps you reach a financial target to pay for your funeral when that day arrives. Fair Wealth Australia membership includes a Funeral Savings Fund. However, we also offer these funds for non-members too.
