What is a Funeral Loan?

Many of us often avoid the topic of death. However, passing on is an inevitable passage of life.


When our loved ones pass on, it is natural that we would wish to give them the best send off.


That said, the costs that come with the preparation of a funeral can be really hefty.


Sometimes a family member’s death might catch you off guard, putting you in a tight spot with regard to your finances.


This is where a funeral loan can help to provide you with swift financial assistance.


A funeral loan is a form of personal loan specially tailored to cater to the costs of the entire funeral procession. It can cover and see you through all aspects of the funeral, from start to end. These include the funeral set up, obituary postings, and the like.


This way, you and your family members can focus on giving your loved one a proper send off, while being assured that your finances are well taken care of.

What are the immediate steps to take when a loved one passes on?

1. Getting a doctor to certify the cause of death

  • Death at home: Make a call to your family doctor or a neighbourhood GP willing to make a house call. You can also find doctors via Raffles Medical Group, Speedoc, MW Medical or Trinity House call. Useful documents to help the doctor ascertain the cause of death include medication prescriptions, medical history of the deceased and hospital discharge summaries.
  • Death in the hospital: The doctor should have prepared a Certificate of Cause of Death (CCOD) if the cause of death is known, and if it was a natural cause of death. If not, the body has to be sent to the Mortuary @ HSA.

3. Engage a funeral director

The funeral director will guide you through the steps to be taken here on. For starters, they will:

  • Collect the body from the home / hospital mortuary
  • Send the body for embalming
  • Deliver the body to the location of the wake

On your part, you will also have to prepare a set of clothing for the deceased and a photograph for the funeral portrait.
