With the average funeral and other related costs in the UK costing nearly £5,500², and possibly needing a lot of that money then and there, how many people have the kind of money just lying around?
The Funeral Protection Promis isn't a pre-paid Funeral Plan
The Funeral Protection Promis is a life insurance policy, not a pre-paid funeral plan. This means your loved ones will get a cash lump sum with no restrictions on how to spend it, allowing them flexibility in a difficult situation. Unlike a pre-paid funeral plan that pays directly to a funeral provider, your loved ones receive your chosen cash lump sum to use as they choose. And it pays out quickly – within 48 hours⁴.
Funerals can be expensive! Most people don't really know how much they cost because we don’t really have to think about it…until we suffer a death in the family. And then…it’s a shock. In fact, the average cost is £3,658 for basic funeral costs, rising to £5,409 when all other related costs are taken into account.
Most of us don’t spend a great deal of time thinking about this. We’re too busy enjoying life with those we love. But it’s well worth knowing in advance just how much a funeral can cost and planning ahead to avoid leaving your family with the pressure of having to pay for it. 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.
Not only do your loved ones have to deal with the grief in this difficult time, but in reality they also have to arrange a funeral and pay for it. What most people don’t realise is that they may need to pay quite a lot of that money very quickly. The time after the passing of a loved one should be for coming together, to mourn and support each other… not for worrying about how to pay for funeral and other costs. Money should not be an issue at this time. We know how much your family means to you.
And whilst the Funeral Protection Promis won’t ease their sense of loss, it can be your final act of love to them, a way of saying “here’s my final gift of love to you; my way to help protect you after I’m gone”.
At Promis Life we are very proud of our 48 Hour Claim Promis and the fact we are the only company to offer it. But what does it mean for you? It means that when your loved ones need it the most our Promis to you is that they will receive the money within 48 hours from us receiving correctly completed claim documentation⁴ – especially important if there are any costs or bills that need paying quickly. We know it will be a distressing time for family and loved ones so the 48 Hour Claim Promis is just one way we try and make the process of dealing with a claim as smooth as possible. See below for what some our claimants have said….
“I have already recommended you to several friends & family as the support & service was brilliant ”
- Jackie, Promis Life claimant - July 2021
“Everything was dealt with expertly and sympathetically. Very quickly paid out which enabled me to pay all bills and the funeral immediately which in turn helps these companies to keep operating well. I also liked the fact a will form is included in the pack. It helped tremendously.”
