There is plenty of life left in me yet! Should I consider a purchasing a Funeral Plan?
The one thing that no-one can avoid in the end is one’s own mortality. Many people find it difficult to think about and put it to the back of their minds. However, if one wishes to reduce the burden on one’s loved ones when the time does come, a funeral plan is an excellent way of doing just that. Peace of mind can be gained in the knowledge that specific wishes can be set out and the costs have been met.
Without a Funeral Plan with our Funeral Plan provider, Golden Charter in place, it falls to the closest relatives of the deceased to cover the costs and to agree to the details between them. This can cause hardship and extra distress during what is already a very difficult time.
OK, but why would it benefit me to purchase one now?
The cost of funerals rose by 92% between 2004 and 2015. If one was to compare interest on savings over the same period, taking the average cost of a funeral, it would show a shortfall of £1,516 (Building Societies Association average savings rates 2004-2015). Purchasing a funeral plan today would ensure the costs are fixed at today’s prices, with nothing further to pay.
