What is a Funeral Plan
Gemini Estate Planning have a partnership arrangement with Dignity Pre Arrangement Ltd, a market-leading provider of pre paid funeral plans.
What is a Funeral Plan?
It’s a way to give yourself welcome peace of mind about the future
Just like taking out life insurance or making a will, a Guaranteed Funeral Plan is a sensible and practical way of planning for the future. It is a simple way for you to take control of your affairs, gain peace of mind and help your family at a difficult time. The money you pay into a plan is held in a secure Trust, which makes sure the funds are there to pay the funeral director when the time comes.
Deciding which arrangements are right is easy
There are three individual funeral plans. Each plan is designed to meet different needs but they contain all the arrangements you would expect in a traditional cremation funeral.
What about a burial funeral?
Each plan guarantees to cover the cost of a cremation funeral. Due to the varying costs of burial funerals, the plan cannot guarantee to cover the complete cost. However, a contribution to these costs will be made from the plan.
Can I personalise my plan?
Yes, you can also include special requests, such as a favourite hymn, piece of music or reading and perhaps an additional limousine. However, any costs incurred from these requests will not be covered by the plan and will have to be paid for at the time of the funeral.
The Guaranteed Funeral Plan does what savings and insurance policies can’t –it guarantees to cover funeral costs
Nowadays, it’s an unfortunate fact that funeral prices are rising so quickly that many ways of saving simply can’t guarantee to cover the costs. The Guaranteed Funeral Plan from Dignity does, so you can be certain that the funeral specified in the plan will be paid for in full, no matter how much prices might rise in the meantime. And once it’s paid for, it’s paid for. So, by taking out a Guaranteed Funeral Plan now, you are freezing funeral costs at today’s prices.
This plan is exclusively for over 50s
If you’re 50 or over, acceptance is guaranteed. The Guaranteed Funeral Plan has no upper age limits, no health restrictions and no medical questions, so you can apply confident in the knowledge that you are guaranteed to be accepted.
