All you need to know about funeral plans and their benefits
The Cost of a Funeral in the UK has risen and is predicted to continue to rise in the future.
With a prepaid funeral plan, you can protect yourself and your family from these increasing costs, securing your Funeral Director's services at today's prices. There will be no more for your family to pay for the Funeral Director's services, however much prices may rise in the future.
A study published in September 2016 has found that the cost of dying has risen at a far sharper rate than the cost of inflation. According to the report, the overall cost of dying - which includes costs such as probate, headstones and flowers in addition to the basic cost of a funeral - has risen by 8.3% in the past year to £8,802.
The average cost of a basic funeral has increased 5.5% in a single year to £3,897 which is more than twice as much as funeral prices in 2004*. Given these rising costs, this is an ideal time to be thinking about pre-paid funeral plans.
A life insurance will give you a specific amount of money, a savings account cannot keep up with the rising costs of funerals, where as a pre paid funeral plan can give you security and peace of mind knowing that the cost of your funeral is paid - no matter how much prices rise in the future.
