What is  Pre-Paid Funeral Plan?

A pre-paid funeral plan (also abbreviate to funeral plan) is a method to plan and pay for your funeral in advance.

In our research of over 2,000 customers we found that the 3 main reason to take out a funeral plan are:

  1. Protection from rising costs: Just like most things the cost of funerals increases each year and in the past 10 years the increase in costs has been higher than the rate of inflation. A pre-paid funeral plan enables you to fix the cost of your funeral at today’s price to protect form rising costs. The savings can therefore be considerable when you put a funeral plan in place.
  2. Peace of mind: A pre-paid funeral plan means that when the time comes your family members will not have the potential financial worry of having to pay for your funeral because it is already paid for. Many of the customers we spoke to did not want their children or family members to have the burden of paying for their funeral which is why they chose to put a pre-paid funeral plan in place
  3. Final Wishes: When you set up a pre-paid funeral plan you can include yours wishes for exactly what you wish to happen including service type (religious or humanist), dress code, music, readings and hymns for the service, any charities that you may request for donations to be made, special requirements and anything else! A prep-paid funeral plan is to provide you a service, so your final wishes can be carried out exactly as you wish. In our survey we found that many customers who had had a family member pass away who had a funeral plan in place told us that it made everything so much easier for the family as the funeral plan detailed their requirements so they did not need to worry about what the family member would want. When you set up a pre-paid funeral plan you can decide on your final wishes at any time – there is no rush and if you change your mind – that is fine – just let the funeral plan provider know so your final wishes can be kept updated.
