EXPERT ADVICE OVER THE PHONE
What is a prepaid funeral plan?
Funeral plans also allow you to make special requests and wishes for the funeral, such as music or readings, to ensure your loved ones arrange the funeral that you want, when the time comes.
You can take control of the unexpected, setting out the arrangements and limiting the costs by paying for the services included in the funeral plan upfront. It’s practical, sensible and should be an essential part of your end of life financial planning.
While funeral costs are rising faster than inflation, purchasing a funeral plan fixes the cost of the funeral at today’s prices by letting you pay for your funeral in advance.
A funeral plan is the best way to arrange your funeral in advance, whilst safeguarding loved ones from rising funeral costs.
Are there alternatives to a funeral plan?
Some people consider over 50s life insurance policies, ISAs or savings accounts to cover the cost of their funeral. However, these can prove unreliable in covering funeral costs as they do not take into account the rising cost of funerals.
You could also end up paying in much more than you would be paid out – which in turn could lead to further funds being needed when the time comes, putting stress and burden on your loved ones.
Whilst banks and financial companies will not help with the funeral organisation, you can be assured that Dignity will.
For total reassurance for yourself and your family, a funeral plan is the most practical choice.
