Buying a funeral plan is not a death wish, it is simply a smart investment
If you were to buy a funeral plan today, the funeral director's costs are frozen at today's prices rather than those at the time of your passing. It will also give you the opportunity to part, or fully plan the occasion.
It is not a death wish.
One way or another, everyone pays the cost of their own funeral. For those who die without a funeral plan in place, a common pattern usually emerges:
- The cost of the funeral is deducted from their estate's value before it can be distributed to the beneficiaries.
- This cost initially comes out of the pocket of a relative until the executor of the estate can get the power to control the estate's finances.
- Relatives end up having to plan a ceremony at short notice whilst being in an emotional and fragile state.
With this in mind it is obvious that buying a plan of your choice which allows you to record all of your wishes is a superior option.
A smart investment...
By purchasing a funeral plan, not only are you removing a huge burden from your loved ones, you will also make substantial savings.
The average cost of a funeral rose by 60% from 2004-2011 (Mintel 2011), not dissimilar from petrol prices. Imagine if someone offered you a huge tank of petrol based on prices seven years ago, you'd take it in an instant! If you had purchased a funeral plan seven years ago, you'd be looking at an equally large saving.
