Grief and financial stress are not a great combination so MOE wants to educate whānau of options available.

The best way to plan a funeral/ tangihanga is to plan in advance.

MOE will assist clients with options that will help alleviate the financial burden at the inevitable time. Whether it’s a savings plan, Funeral or Life Insurance and making sure our client have a Will and has documented their final wishes with whānau engagement so everyone is aware and there are no surprises.

MOE is contactable 24/7 to assist whānau throughout the whole tangihanga to take the stress away at the emotional time. MOE will be the main contact between the whānau pani and Lawyer’s, Insurance brokers, Funeral Home, caterers, venue hirer and any other service provider.

What Our Families are Saying

“…These events were made possible by Brenda and her whanau (communication was key for Brenda) to whom we owe huge gratitude to and for their hard work, sacrifice and time. She is truly an inspiration to us all and a true leader when faced with situations such as this one being close to the person who had passed away. We wish you all the best and look forward to seeing what the future holds for you Brenda…We cannot thank you enough.

Nga mihi nui kia koe, e kaha ana ki te whakatauki: “He aha mea nui o te Ao? He tangata! he tangata! he tangata!…”

Get In Touch

Whanau are simply not ready or prepared to deal with the death of a loved one.

Emotional overspending at the time of death is the main reason most people spend more than they need on a funeral for their loved ones.
