The benefits of a Prepaid Funeral Plan


  • It's a fixed price plan - you will never be asked for a penny more for the services included in the plan.
  • It protects your loved ones - by helping to save them both money and worries.
  • It helps save you money - by paying at today's prices you can avoid future increases for services included in the plan.
  • It's simple - guaranteed acceptance for those aged 50 or over, with no medical questions.
  • It promises - to be unaffected by changes in interest rates or inflation.
  • It's flexible - you can pay with a lump sum or spread the cost with 12 monthly instalments at no extra costs. Longer instalment options are available up to a maximum of 10 years. Please note that if you spread the cost over more than 12 months there is an extra charge.
  • The Dignity Promise - If you choose to pay for your plan over more than 12 months, and pass away before you’ve finished paying for it, Dignity will cover your outstanding balance.**

**For payment terms beyond 12 months only. Full details of the Dignity Promise are available at www.dignityfuneralplans.co.uk/promise
