How to pay for a funeral In 2023

Funeral costs are something that many people worry about, whether it is leaving costs for their family to pay when they are gone or simply concerned about the rising cost of funerals, but there is a solution to this - the Funeral Plan.

What is a Funeral Plan

A funeral plan is a way of paying for your funeral and making sure that your funeral is arranged so that not only do you take the onus of paying for your funeral off the hands of your family, but you also don’t leave the hassle of planning the funeral itself either.

Funeral Plans are a way of providing for your family when you have passed on, allowing them to grieve without the burden of making all the arrangements or trying to find the money to pay for it.

When you set up a funeral plan, the money is invested in a ring-fenced trust that is held overseas and managed by a board of trustees who are independent and are all qualified to manage large funds. When you look at setting up a funeral plan, you may notice that the cost of the funeral plan is a little higher than the current prices for a funeral, this is due to the management fee for setting up the plan and covers you against any increases of costs in the near future.

Why Should you Choose a Funeral Plan?

Choosing a funeral plan is not just good for your family, it is good for Most people to have certain things that they want to include as part of their funeral, while others have a definite plan down to the finest of details. Even if you don’t fall into either of those categories, planning your funeral can help you to take control of your own mortality, especially if you have been struggling to come to terms with a terminal diagnosis.


When you choose a funeral plan, one of the first things to consider is eligibility, not every plan provider will provide a funeral plan arrangement for everyone.
