Although you are thinking about funding care, buying a funeral plan at this time can be a very good idea.
• It means that your funeral can be chosen and planned calmly in advance.
• It prevents your executors needing to access funds from your estate to pay for your funeral before probate has been granted.
• It may protect a little more of your estate for your beneficiaries.
• It allows you to buy your funeral at today's prices. The average cost of a funeral increased by 110% since 2004*, if this continues in 10 years the average funeral could be as much as £7298*
Having bought a funeral plan, you and your family can relax, knowing that when the time comes your family will not have the additional worry of planning everything and your wishes will be known.
