Do under 50’s need a funeral plan?
There has been an increasing rise in the number of under 50’s that are seeing the benefits of a prepaid funeral plan. Historically funeral plans have been seen as an investment for those in their 50’s and in retirement but now more and more younger people are realising that a prepaid funeral plan is a wise investment to safeguard their family in the future.
In the same way that money placed in a trust fund grows over time, money that is invested in a funeral plan also grows to cover the rising costs of funerals. With yearly increases around 10% these plans offer an affordable way to plan for your funeral and remove the financial burden for loved ones. And with current funeral prices an average of £4136 in the UK it really does make sense to lock in the cost of your funeral today.
