If you’re looking to take out a Prepaid Funeral Plan on behalf of your mother, father, partner or another loved one, you can. Whether you have Power of Attorney, or just want to help manage the process on behalf of a loved one, it makes great practical and financial sense to take care of funeral costs in advance.
I was thinking about it for a while, then I sent for an information pack, which I found very easy to follow. I was able to pick the best plan for me and how I wanted to pay for it. Now I know my family won’t have to find the money when the time comes. I even did one for my husband.– Mrs Ledger
Take care of arrangements in advance
Taking care of funeral arrangements in advance at a time when you can think more rationally can help avoid making wrong decisions when emotions are heightened at the time of bereavement. If it’s possible to discuss the arrangements with your loved one, it can help reassure all involved that everything is taken care of. Or even if it’s not possible to discuss arrangements, taking control of the situation in advance can provide great comfort.
Remove the worry of rising funeral costs
There are also financial benefits of paying for your funeral in advance. Rising funeral costs mean that in the not so distant future, the average funeral price could reach as high as £12,200 by 2035*. A Prepaid Funeral Plan from Gold Zebra fixes funeral costs at today’s prices, so however much costs rise in the future, there will be no more to pay for the services included in your plan.
A collection of the UK’s finest Funeral Directors
When you take out a Funeral Plan with Gold Zebra, your plan includes the services of a Nominated Funeral Director, who will be on hand to help you with the funeral arrangements when the time comes. Gold Zebra has a network of approved Funeral Directors across the UK so you can rest assured that your funeral will be in excellent hands.
Your money securely protected independently
You can also take comfort that, regardless of what happens in the future, the money required for the funeral is protected as it is held in a totally independent Trust Fund until your plan is needed. There is a choice of payment options available. You can choose to:
- Make a one-off payment
- Spread the cost over 36 months at no extra cost
- Pay over a period of up to 15 years**
It’s entirely your choice.
