IN TODAY'S WORLD, PAYING FOR A FUNERAL IS HARD
Over the past decade, the cost of dying has rocketed, shows no signs of slowing down. Current trends indicate that the cost of dying for millennials could be as much as £14,000.
Let’s consider that number again for a second – £14,000. That’s astonishing!
IT SOUNDS VERY DAUNTING AND UNJUST, DOESN'T IT?
But here’s the good news: it’s completely avoidable. Funerals aren’t going to hit a price ceiling for the foreseeable future, but that doesn’t mean you have to pay the max figures.
WHAT DO I GET IN MY FUNERAL PLAN?
Through Clear Plan's partners, you can make sure that you get the plan that's right for you. Depending on your choices, some or all of the below could be available to you.
A funeral plan will freeze your Funeral Director’s fees forever so you don’t have to worry about costs rising.
You can decide when you would like the ceremony to happen so you don’t end up with a time-slot that you don’t want.
Your Funeral Plan will help you cover some of the third party costs you may have. These are things like doctors fees, crematorium charges etc.
As funeral prices get higher and higher, people are left in a bizarre position. The longer we live, the more we have to pay when we eventually pass away. This is wrong on so many levels; there’s no point trying to make sense of it. Instead, you can simply sidestep the absurdity by opting for a prepaid funeral plan.
Unlike these astronomical funeral fees, funeral plans make perfect sense for some people. They allow you to cover most of your expenses on the day and secure some protection from rising costs across the funeral industry, forever.
When you purchase a prepaid funeral plan, like those available via Clear Plan and our partners, your funeral director fees are frozen. Protected from increase.
What’s more, with a prepaid funeral plan, it’s you who controls what you pay for. You can get the whole expense out of the way immediately by paying a single lump sum, or spread out your fee with smaller monthly instalments. It’s entirely down to your means and situation.
While a Funeral can be an intimidating topic to chew over, shelving conversations about death doesn’t make it go away. Ignorance can only be bliss for so long. When the time arrives, wouldn’t you prefer everything to be in place and ready, rather than a pell-mell scramble to fulfil final requests and wishes?
Take a deep breath, discussing death as soon as possible will make the future feel so much brighter. With a funeral plan you can design the perfect goodbye, tailoring the ceremony to your exact specifications.
You can specify your wishes in advance with a funeral plan. Transportation, venue hire, themes, readings, songs and dress code can all be planned in advance so your family don’t have to worry.
The funeral plan packages available via Clear Plan and our Partners, can cater for different tastes and budgets. They can be tweaked with special requests, remaining flexible and adjustable. So if you want to change something, you’re free to do so.
Ultimately, it’s clear that for many people, a prepaid funeral plan is likely to be by far the best method of financing your end of life preparations. With the funeral packages offered by our partners, you can create the funeral you want and pay for it your way.
