Funeral Planning Authority (FPA) is an independent body dedicated to ensuring funeral plan providers deliver high standards to their customers.
They provide a strict set of rules and Code of Practice which members must abide by to receive accreditation.
Unlike many financial services, which are legally required to be FCA regulated, the FPA is a self-opt in service.
Funeral providers choose to be FPA regulated and as a result, agree to follow the necessary guidelines put in place by the regulator.
It's not simply a case of paying for registration and if guidelines are not followed FPA accreditation is withdrawn.
FPA ensure that customers' money is safe and secure and that all funeral services promised can be delivered as stated.
At Reassured, not only are all of our funeral plans FPA regulated but we also apply all of our FCA regulated processes to ensure full security for our customers.
