A prepaid funeral plan protects you against the rising costs of funerals. This allows you to pay for your funeral in advance so your relatives don't have to cover all the costs themselves. Choosing a funeral plan now will help protect your loved ones from a lot of stress and financial worry in the future.
The real benefit of taking out a funeral plan is that you can effectively freeze the cost at today's prices, meaning your funeral will be protected from future price increases. From choosing your funeral director and dealing with paperwork, to organising the service and transport arrangements, everything in the prepaid funeral plan will have been taken care of when the time does eventually come. For complete peace of mind, it is essential to be financially prepared.
This completely depends on the plan you choose and what your wishes are. You will need to consider whether you would like to opt for a cremation or burial, though all of Dignity's Funeral Plans can be tailored to suit either.
A prepaid plan typically comprises of two main costs; the funeral director for arranging and conducting the funeral and the cremation or burial fees. From a personal perspective, taking out a funeral plan ensures your last wishes are carried out without a hitch. It allows you to make a record of your preferences for the service itself, whether this includes any special readings, music or flowers you'd like. You can add in as much or as little detail as you wish. A Dignity Funeral Plan guarantees to cover all the funeral director services included in the Plan. It also covers the listed cremation costs and minister's fees, or where burial is requested, a £1,220 contribution towards burial costs.
If you change your mind, or your circumstances change, there is no extra charge for changing the special wishes in your Plan at any time. However, some special requests may incur an additional charge and may not be covered by the price guarantee.
