Nobody likes to think about life after they’re gone but it’s important to have plans in place. Planning your funeral in advance might sound strange but it can significantly ease the stress for family and friends after you’ve passed. A prepaid funeral plan allows you to make and pay for arrangements in advance, including funeral transport and services, and there are many good reasons to consider a prepaid funeral.
We understand that it can be difficult to think about but it’s important to be prepared, so see below for just four good reasons to consider a funeral plan.
Peace of mind
Knowing that arrangements are paid for in advance gives you peace of mind and it ensures that family and friends won’t struggle to foot the bill. You can also be confident that your wishes will be honoured, even if costs have increased since the original time of payment.
Spread the cost
Many funeral plans allow you to make monthly payments to help spread the cost. Funerals can cost thousands of pounds but a prepaid funeral plan means no one has to pay a large lump sum upfront. Prepaid plans can also lock in the cost beforehand, meaning there’s no extra money to pay due to inflation or rising prices.
Do things your way
Prepaid funerals allow you to make each decision in advance and plan a service that’s exactly how you want it to be. There are many different packages to choose from and you can decide everything from the transport, to a burial or cremation, memorials and the order of service. This can be comforting for friends and family too, as they’ll be confident that the funeral adheres to your exact wishes.
Ease the burden for family and friends
Planning a funeral can be stressful, time consuming and expensive, which can be very hard for family and friends on top of their grief. A prepaid funeral plan helps to ease the burden and ensures they won’t have to worry about expensive costs or making arrangements. All friends and family need to do is speak to the funeral director who arranged your plan and they’ll take care of the rest.
