Some funeral plan providers, such as Golden Leaves, only accept customers who are aged 50 or over.

However, Reassured are able to arrange funeral plans that guarantee acceptance to UK residents aged over 18.

As discussed, there are many benefits from arranging a funeral plan sooner rather than later in life, so get in touch for your free quotes.

Research carried out since 2004 has shown that funeral costs have risen +128% and will continue to rise in the years to come[1].

Therefore, people in their 30s or 40s have the opportunity to avoid many years of rising funeral costs.

Even in the next five years, funeral costs are forecast to increase by 20%.

Flexible payment options

Funeral plans arranged through Reassured offer a number of flexible
payment options, allowing you to either pay in full or spread the cost.

Payment options vary between providers, but tend to include the following:

  • One lump sum payment
  • 12 monthly payments (fee-free)
  • Monthly instalment plan up to 25 years (charges apply)

As someone under 50, you’ll have access to the most flexible funeral plan payment options.

This is because, as you will not be impacted by any upper age limit set by the plan provider, you can spread the cost up to a maximum of 25 years.

And, whilst instalment charges apply, by spreading the plan over the longest term you can benefit from the lowest monthly cost.

For example, a 48-year-old spreading the cost over 25 years will pay just £19.11* per month.

As mentioned, by spreading the cost of your funeral as early as possible, you won’t have to worry about this expense during retirement when funds may be more limited.

Benefits of paying by instalments

Paying by instalments up to 25 years allows you to spread the cost of your funeral plan so it’s more affordable.

But not only that, if you choose to pay by instalments and pass away after the first 12 months, but before your plan has been paid in full, your funeral will still be covered.

This means that all the services agreed in your plan will still be carried out, with no more for your loved ones to pay.

Many other funeral plans won’t offer this additional protection.

Contact our award-winning team to secure your funeral plan and guarantee your peace of mind.

Plan your own funeral in advance

It may seem premature to think about planning your funeral now, but this is just another benefit of having a funeral plan in place.

A funeral plan allows you to set a budget and plan the ceremony your way without the pressure of time.

You’ll be able to record your final wishes with the funeral director and settle all the arrangements.

This selfless act ensures that when the time comes, a difficult burden has been removed from your loved ones.

You’ll also have peace of mind that your loved ones won’t place any further financial pressure on themselves to arrange the perfect day.

Of course, as you get older the way you may wish your funeral to be carried out may change and you may decide you need to upgrade your services.

That’s not a problem, funeral plans arranged through Reassured can be upgraded free of charge.

Support for loved ones

A funeral plan can provide support for your loved ones during a time of grief.

Funeral plans available through Reassured include family support and assistance provided by the funeral director, as well as professional bereavement support and services, when the time comes.

This means that with a funeral plan, your loved ones can get the emotional support they need as well as financial aid.

FPA approved funeral plans (keeping your money safe)

All funeral plans available through Reassured are approved by the Funeral Planning Authority (FPA).

Essentially, the FPA ensure that regulated providers have measures in place to ensure the financial protection of funeral plan customers.

So when buying a funeral plan through us, you’ll have peace of mind that your money is safe.

The life insurance solution

Life insurance provides financial protection for your loved ones in the form of a cash lump sum, which can be used to pay for your funeral.

The pay out could also be used to ease other financial pressures your family may be faced with if you were no longer around, for example, mortgage repayments, daily living costs and/or childcare.

Before turning 50 may be the best time to take out life insurance, especially if you’re in good health, as you could benefit from low-cost premiums.

There are various types of life insurance suited to different needs.

Term-based life insurance provides cover for a set period of time, usually 20 – 40 years.

This is a popular option for many in their 30s or 40s who have young children and/or a mortgage.

Whole of life insurance provides cover for the whole of life until you pass away (or up until a certain age).

As a pay out is guaranteed, whole of life cover is a little more expensive and premiums are paid for a longer amount of time – which makes this option more suitable for someone over 40.

Life insurance can be arranged through Reassured from just 20p-a-day.

Contact our award-winning team to compare quotes and secure affordable cover.
