Why should I buy a prepaid funeral plan?
A funeral plan allows you to arrange and pay for your funeral in advance, giving you peace of mind that your relatives won’t have to cover the cost when you’re gone.
Funerals can be an expensive affair, with the average funeral costing several thousand pounds. Paying for a loved one’s funeral can sadly put some people in debt.
Many people are worried about the financial impact that their funeral will have on their family when they die leading them to take care of matters in advance with a prepaid funeral plan.
Protection from rising funeral costs
With costs continuing to rise year on year, locking in the costs of your funeral at today’s prices is a smart financial decision. By purchasing a funeral plan, there will be no more for your family to pay for the guaranteed services covered in the plan when it’s needed.
Many people rely on their savings to cover the cost of their funeral. However, with costs continuing to increase, there is of course no guarantee that their savings will have grown enough to cover the cost of a funeral when the time comes.
Take away the worry
Arranging a funeral can be extremely stressful, both emotionally and financially, with families often feeling pressured into paying for a funeral they can’t afford because they think it’s what their loved one would have wanted or are worried about what people may think if they do not organise a lavish ceremony.
In reality, leaving the financial burden of funeral costs to our loved ones isn’t something any of us want to do. A funeral plan leaves you comfortable in the knowledge that your family are protected from the cost of the services covered in your plan.
Plan it your way
Purchasing a prepaid funeral plan can be especially important to those with something a little more personal in mind than a traditional funeral. Unfortunately you cannot rely on your will to pass on your funeral wishes, as the will is often left unread until after the funeral.
Without an expression of your wishes, it can be difficult for families to make decisions at what will undoubtedly be an emotional time, and it may put them under even more stress trying to decide what you would have wanted for your funeral.
Putting a plan in place is the best way to ensure your wishes are honoured.
