What Are The Benefits Of A Pre-Paid Funeral Plan?
Organising a pre-paid funeral plan is a fantastic idea. It saves you the worry of ensuring that everyone knows what you want for your funeral, and it will save your family the worry of paying for it.
There are many benefits to this idea.
The first is that you can fix your funeral director’s costs. No matter how many years before your death you complete paying for your pre-paid funeral plan, the price you have paid will be the price that is honoured – your family won’t be asked to pay out anything further, unless they want to add to the funeral in some way.
Payments are also often flexible. You can overpay, take payment holidays, and choose your own budget. It’s ideal if you like to be in complete control.
Speaking of control, a pre-paid funeral plan gives you exactly that over every aspect of your funeral. You can pay in advance for the coffin you want, the kind of service, the burial or cremation… you can even organise the music and readings ahead of time, making sure that the whole thing goes exactly as you want it to.
But, if you do change your mind about any of the arrangements, your flexible funeral plan should be easy to amend. Since nothing will be organised until it needs to be, you won’t incur any admin costs. Bear in mind, though, that if you do need to change something your monthly payments may also change to ensure that everything is covered.
