What is a Prepaid Funeral Plan?
A Prepaid Funeral Plan is one of the best ways to ensure your funeral is taken care of and paid for in advance, as it guarantees to cover the cost of the funeral services included in the funeral plan. At the same time it provides loved ones with all the help and support they will need at a difficult time.
If you’ve ever had to plan someone’s funeral, you’ll understand what a distressing and expensive experience this can be. Unless you sat down and discussed everything with them in advance, the chances are you might not have known exactly what sort of funeral they wanted. This, combined with having to find the money to cover funeral costs, can result in a lot of heartache and financial pain.
