When we think of a funeral we tend to think of the coffin, the headstone and the service. But people can often underestimate the additional costs which can occur around this time, such as family travel costs to attend the funeral, and perhaps medical or legal costs. In fact, the average cost in 2016 was £4,350 for basic costs, rising to £5,839 when all other related costs are taken into account.†
A Funeral Protection Promis payout can be used for these or in fact any other costs, enabling your family to show their love and respect for you by choosing a funeral service to do you proud.
Whilst the Funeral Protection Promis is a life insurance product and has been designed to primarily cover funeral expenses it is not a funeral plan. This means that the payout can be used for any purpose, not just a funeral, and the cover amount you choose, could be less than the cost of a funeral. Inflation may reduce the value of your payout.
Of course, every funeral is different and you may have your own ideas about what you’d want, but the example here gives you an approximation of typical costs.
The Funeral Protection Promis is an affordable life insurance plan to help cover the cost of a funeral or other final expenses.
