Making plans for the future brings mixed feelings. It’s right to concentrate on the good things, but sometimes there are things you would rather not think about. A funeral is one of those things.
You may not have considered planning a funeral in advance, but there are several reasons why it can bring great peace of mind.
Bereavement usually brings with it emotional and financial burdens. However, you can spare your loved ones much of the burden of having to make difficult decisions at an upsetting time.
The cost of many funerals has more than doubled in the last 10 years, and prices are set to continue to increase in the future.
If you have savings set aside for your funeral, you can never be sure that there will be enough – or you may be setting aside more than you really need to. It makes good sense to guard against unknown price rises.
A prepaid funeral plan is the way to be absolutely certain that the services of the funeral director will be provided and there will be nothing more to pay for these services.
Bereaved relatives usually arrange a funeral and may be unsure what was actually wanted.
So don’t leave thisngs to the last minute and plan for your future.
