Pre-Paid Funeral Planning has grown in popularity over the years. The older generation are planning for the future, to take the burden of the expense and complications away from family when they pass away.
Planning or arranging a funeral can be a difficult process, with a variety of decisions to be made; from the choice between a cremation or burial, the type of coffin or the music to be played and things to organise, dates, invites, flowers, a wake and much more.
In a stressful time, with financial decisions to be made things can seem overwhelming and complicated. No matter how much prices rise in the future, once your plan is paid for, you’ll have the reassurance of knowing there’ll be nothing more to pay for these services guaranteed.
When you purchase a funeral plan, they will help you with the pre-planning and pre-arrangements to make sure you get the funeral that you’d like at a fixed price.
When death occurs, the plan provider will take on the burden of the arrangements leaving your family with less to organise and removing some of the financial worry at a time when they are least able to cope.
Most providers typically have three payment options.
Lump Sum Payment: The whole sum is paid at the application.
Instalment Option: You pay a monthly fee over a given monthly period (A small deposit will be required).
Fixed Monthly Payment: You pay a monthly fixed payment until the age of 90 or until death – whichever life event comes first.
