Funeral Cover Owen Cathy in-page

Profession: Owen - Company Director, Cathy - Registered Nurse & Trainer

Age: 60s

Situation: With three family members who have died and a bad car accident in 2013 in which she nearly died, Cathy wanted Funeral Cover for both herself and Owen.

In 2013 Cathy was in a bad car accident: “It shot home to me clearly that life can change in the blink of an eyelid“. “It’s not until you‘re older that you consider you might be responsible for a funeral.”

“I want to make sure that anything to do with me is covered.”

“I was sitting at my computer and we were talking about it while I was working. I thought it would be a good idea, being an AA Member there was an offer if I remember rightly. I bought a policy for myself and after a bit of gentle nudging, bought one for Owen too. “If Owen pops his clogs before me, I want to be sure I can afford a funeral for him”.

They live and work in Martinborough, enjoying the occasional bottle of local wine, visiting their grown children and enjoying six grandchildren. “My grandson’s the brightest wee spark I’ve come across, but wilful” says Cathy. Owen chips in, “Just like Nana.” There is a tangible affection between them.

For a couple who know what they want, Funeral Cover was an easy decision. “We talk about things, but we wouldn’t make a spreadsheet” says Owen. Cathy says “my son has three kids and despite holding down a full-time job struggles to make ends meet. Our theory is, we give to the children now - we’re not leaving them any money”. But Cathy and Owen are equally keen to make sure that they’re not leaving any funeral cost headaches to deal with either.

Owen’s advice for someone considering funeral cover is to make sure that you get the cover you need, and importantly, can afford: “My personal recommendation is to start by thinking about the funeral, the minimum and then see what else you need to cover”

“The AA is a national institution, and I like that. It’s a name known throughout New Zealand. Respected, trusted. You know they're there if you ever need them.”
