A practical guide to funeral plans
A funeral plan allows you to pay for your funeral upfront so that when you pass away, certain aspects of your funeral are already paid for which avoids your loved ones having to cover the cost themselves or from using money from your estate.
What is covered in a funeral plan varies from provider to provider but the below list outlines what is usually covered, what may be covered depending on the plan and what is not included in a prepaid funeral plan. It is important to check what is and isn’t covered in a plan before you buy so that you can understand any additional costs that may occur after you pass away.
This helpful guide from The National Will Register will help you determine whether a funeral plan is right for you and your circumstances.
