Funeral Plans are a simple way for you to organise your funeral in advance, so you can enjoy life knowing it is taken care of. Offering peace of mind is not the only benefit of a prepaid funeral plan. Here are some other good reasons:

1) Avoid rising funeral costs

UK average funeral costs have increased by 62% in the last decade and the latest figures show that they are still rising*.

Not many people realise that with a prepaid funeral plan you secure your policy at today's price. Meaning that you lock in this cost, so you are protected against future rises in funeral costs.

2) Plan your funeral in advance

Although death is an uncomfortable topic to discuss with family the advantage of a funeral plan is that it allows you to plan your final farewell your way. Pre-planning can not only take the stress away from your loved ones having to guess what you would of wanted, but now you are able to relax and enjoy life knowing this is taken care of.

3) Protect loved ones financially

The average cost of a basic funeral is now at £4,184, which is the highest it's ever been. This is up from £4,115 in 2019. It is projected that the average cost of a basic funeral could reach £5,044 in five years time*. With a funeral plan, you're able to pay in advance with monthly instalments or you can pay in full.

4) Guaranteed acceptance for UK residents

A huge benefit of funeral plans is that there are no medical questions to answer, or doctor's reports needed when you take out a plan. This means that regardless of your health, you can get a plan.

5) Flexible payment options

With a prepaid funeral plan, you're able to spread the cost of your plan. You can pay upfront or in monthly instalments, which allows for different budgets. Be sure to ask your funeral plan consultant to explain any instalment charges, so you know how much you will be paying.
