Why should I get a funeral plan?
The two main reasons that people take out a funeral plan:
- By organizing what you want when the inevitable happens, you alleviate the stress and worry for your loved ones.
- Funeral costs are rising far in excess of the annual rate of inflation, 88% in the last ten years according to Sun Life funeral survey, meaning budgeting for a funeral by traditional means may no longer be sufficient to cover the cost.
A funeral plan pays for a future funeral today, with the cost of funerals rising by over 8% per annum over the last ten years then you could make significant savings.
You are effectively paying for a service in advance, funerals can be very expensive costing several thousands of pounds. Many people worry that when they die , they will not leave enough money for their funeral or as bad their money may be tied up in probate (average probate takes 6-9 months) thus leaving a relative to find the money themselves. With a funeral plan you arrange and pay for it in advance. Funeral plans allow you to arrange your own funeral or someone else’s in advance, giving you the opportunity to have the send off you want to have, as long as the funeral is held in the UK.
Many clients find that purchasing a funeral plan reliefs them and their family of worry and stress and makes sure they can have the style of funeral they want, whether that is a traditional style, a celebration of their life or something even more personal to them. Including motorcycle and side car, union jack coffins, green service, wicker coffins, themed Monty Python funeral are a few of the funeral plans we have dealt with.
