Dignity Funeral Plans - How a Funeral Plan works

how does a funeral plan work one of the

certainties of life for all of us

is that one day we're all going to need

a funeral we just don't know when it'll

be this is where a dignity prepaid

funeral plan can help it lets you take

control of the unexpected it helps you

protect loved ones from difficult

decisions and financial pressures when

the time comes a dignity funeral plan

makes it easier by sorting out the

essential arrangements and costs in

advance a funeral plan protects against

rising funeral costs there are other

ways which are often used to pay towards

funeral costs such as savings accounts

or over-50s insurance policies but these

don't provide the same guarantees as a

dignity prepaid funeral plan as funeral

costs have risen faster than both the

rate of inflation and savings rates it's

highly unlikely that money kept in a

savings account or what is paid out from

an over 50s insurance policy will be

enough in the future and you'll never

know for definite until the time comes

protect against rising funeral costs and

uncertainty by paying in advance the

plan freezes funeral costs on the day

you take out the plan so that however

much costs may increase in the future

services in the plan so you'll know

exactly how much you have to pay and you

won't ever need to worry about rising

funeral costs again

arrangements as well
