What is a funeral plan?

A prepaid funeral plan lets you arrange and pay upfront for your funeral, ensuring that your loved ones aren’t faced with any unexpected costs.

At the same time, a prepaid funeral plan provides your family and friends with all the help and support they need during a distressing time. You can make all the decisions in advance, meaning they won’t be bombarded with questions or a potentially confusing list of options.

When arranging your plan, you can opt to pay for it in one single lump sum or spread the cost over a set number of instalments, depending on what the most convenient option for you is.

The money you pay is invested into a trust fund or into an insurance policy, which is then used to pay for the funeral whenever it happens. The idea of a prepaid plan is to so you have a financial provision to pay for your funeral when the time comes and you have the funeral you want.

Funeral plans can cover a range of costs, including:

  • Funeral Director costs
  • Viewings of the deceased
  • Church service
  • Hearse and coffin
  • Car procession (included in some plans)

It’s important that you look into what the proposed plans cover you for, so you can make proper comparisons.

A prepaid funeral plan is a major investment, so you need to ensure you have all the information you need before you decide to buy. Here are some key considerations when selecting the funeral plan that is right for you:

  • What is covered by the plan and what is excluded?
  • Can you amend the plan if your circumstances change?
  • Does the plan allow you to choose the funeral director?
  • If you choose to pay by installments, how many months/years will this arrangement last?
  • What happens if there are still outstanding payments when the policyholder dies?

Benefits of a funeral plan

  • You can plan ahead - A prepaid plan allows you to make decisions about the kind of funeral you want, meaning everything is in place when the time comes.
  • Your wishes will be met - You can make it clear what type of funeral you want and rest assured your decisions will be honoured.
