What is a 'Prepaid Funeral'?

Funerals can be unexpected, and costly. At Prestige we want to unburden you from the stress and worry associated with all aspects related to funeral costs and choices, such as burial or cremation. So loved ones and yourself are better financially prepared, and more able to deal with the death and grieving process. This is, of course, not to be confused with budget funerals where you are compromising on what you want.

Why Pre Pay for Your Funeral?

Are there any alternatives to pre pay funeral plans?

Traditional Savings

It may be possible to save for a funeral, and use the lump sum, or, if an ISA can be utilised for this purpose it may also be worth it. Saving a set amount every month could then be used by family members to pay for the funeral.

Downside: With a cash ISA, you won't be able to get the money out until your executors have probate.​

Life Insurance may be an option?

If you are under 50 years old, life insurance cover may be a better option. Click below to read the benefits available to you:

Home Burial

Although not traditional, home burials can be an option, if your home meets certain criteria, including informing your local police, local authority and environmental health authority.

Downside: Don't forget that it will probably impact property resale value and desirability also. 

It was such a relief. Knowing that my family wouldn’t have the burden of paying my funeral expenses, I didn’t want them, or myself to be stressed at a time when I wanted to feel reassured.
