IntroductionThe funeral you want, planned and paid for in advance
When you take out a funeral plan, you’re not just protecting your family against rising funeral costs, you’re also protecting them against the worry of making the arrangements. When the time comes, your family need only make one phone call.
From organizing the cremation to arranging transport and choosing the funeral directors, it’s all taken care of by the funeral plan and if they want to add their own, personal touches, like flowers, readings and hymns – they can.
Only funeral plans are guaranteed
Funeral plans aren’t the only way to take care of funeral costs. You could invest your money or take out an over 50s policy, but neither of these options are guaranteed to cover funeral expenses in the future. After all, they’ll rise with time, but the amount you’re covered for won’t. So when the time comes, the cost of the funeral may exceed the amount you’re covered for.
If you choose a funeral plan, you’ll pay the price of the plan and not a penny more. But if you choose a life assurance or over 50’s policy, you may have to continue making payments right up to the point where a payout is made, which means you could end up paying more than the lump sum paid out.
What’s more, these other ways to take care of funeral costs don’t include help with the funeral arrangements, so your family would still have to do that themselves. With a Dignity Funeral Plan your loved ones will be helped and guided with the arrangements by a helpful and compassionate Dignity Funeral Director.
