Funerals are a topic which is generally avoided by most people as it is uncomfortable and there is a natural inclination to avoid the discomfort in planning for the funeral. However, considering the rising costs of funeral and the potential burden on the family members to carry out the different activities after your demise can leave a person under stress. Due to this reason, a large number of UK citizens have opted for a prepaid funeral plan. A prepaid funeral plan is a contract between the purchaser and service provider to deliver the selected services at the time of funeral of the purchaser for which the amount has been paid in advance. By selecting a prepaid funeral plan, you can decide on where you want to be buried, and the different ritual activities that you want to be performed in your funeral ceremony. The main benefit of such a plan that it protects against the rising costs of the funeral and your family members do not have to worry about these costs as they are paid in advance. The prepaid funeral plans lock the funeral expenses at today’s rates and therefore, neither you nor your family members have to worry about the cost escalation.
Another main benefit is that the family members do not have to make any decisions on how to carry out the funeral as they are assured that the funeral activities are being performed as per your wishes. However, you need to select the funeral providers which place your money in a Trust so that even if the funeral service provider goes bankrupt, you can be assured that the services will be delivered as per your prepaid plan.
