A funeral plan helps you to plan and pay towards your funeral in advance. It helps to lessen the financial weight of a funeral and reduces the stress and worry for your loved ones.
The average cost for funeral services has been rising for some time and they are expected to go on rising in the years ahead, so you need to make funeral plans now. Unfortunately, money set aside in a savings account is unlikely to grow at the same pace as funeral costs.
You can choose from a range of funeral plans – including the direct to crematorium package you may have seen advertised on television.
In 2022 the laws changed governing those who are allowed to sell funeral plans and, as I am not an employee of a funeral plan company, I can no longer offer these as part of my services. However, if you do decide to take out a pre-paid funeral plan or already have one in place I would usually quote the provider and your policy number in your Will.
