Planning your funeral can seem like a daunting task, but consider the alternative. Your loved ones will be trying to guess what you wanted, and potentially have to borrow money to pay the bill. Research shows that 40% of loved ones turn to loans and credit cards to pay the bill, and only 54% knew whether their loved ones wanted a burial or cremation (Sun Life Cost of Dying Report 2018). You can even take out a plan and pay for it on behalf of a loved one if you wish.
With a prepaid funeral plan, you pay at today’s prices, and you have the option of paying monthly as well as a lump sum to make it affordable. When the time comes, one phone call to the chosen funeral director is all that’s needed to activate the plan. Everything will then be taken care of and carried out according to your wishes, saving your family the additional distress that the process of planning a funeral brings.
