Why should you consider taking out a funeral plan?
Avoid rising funeral costs
Taking a decision now to plan for your funeral and to cover the funeral director service costs at today's prices could save you and your family money. While the average cost of a funeral in 2004 was £1,920, today it's £3,897** That's an increase of 103% - well above inflation. At this rate, by 2026, the average cost of a funeral is estimated to reach £7,049 according to projections by Golden Charter based on SunLife cost of Dying research.
Security and simplicity
When you take out a funeral plan with Golden Charter, you have the reassurance that your money is protected. Your money is paid into the Golden Charter Trust, which is a separate entity to Golden Charter, run by an independent board of Trustees***. You can be sure that, whatever happens, there will be sufficient funds available for your funeral to take place as specified in the plan.
Taking out a plan is a simple and thoughtful way to help protect your loved ones from the emotional and financial burden of arranging your funeral at an already difficult time. Instead you give your family the comfort and reassurance that they are carrying out your specific wishes.
