What Is a Pre-Paid Funeral Plan?
A pre-paid funeral plan is a written contract between you and your funeral director. It details the funeral service of your choice, and you pay for it at today's prices. So you enjoy not only the financial benefit in being protected against inflation, but also the peace of mind knowing that your funeral will be conducted exactly in accordance with your wishes.
Planning Today, For Tomorrow
Pre-planning a funeral is one area of financial planning often neglected – particularly when enjoying a healthy lifestyle.
But we plan ahead for just about every other financial possibility to protect loved ones and ourselves.
Pre-planning a funeral is as easy as any other financial arrangement. It can protect your loved ones emotionally as well as financially and provide you with reassurance knowing that your affairs are in order.
Paying for a Pre-Paid Funeral Is Easy
There are two ways to make payments. You can pay in a lump sum, or your funeral director may give you the option to pay by instalments.
Getting Your Affairs in Order with a Pre-Planned Funeral
When you pre-plan a funeral, you arrange the funeral service you want with your chosen funeral director.
