Thinking about your funeral is a pretty morbid thing to do. It's not the way most people would plan to spend their evening! However, it is often a subject that often sits at the back of your mind. Rather than having it periodically pester your thoughts, why not get your funeral planned, paid for and out of the way so that you can put your attention on the things that are more important to you?
Not only can you save your family a lot of money, you can take away a great deal of the emotional stress and strain at that sensitive and traumatic time to allow them the opportunity to grieve without having financial strain and upset.
As of July 29th 2022, the Funeral Plan industry has become a changing picture and plans are now being regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. This ensures that all funeral plan providers will need to follow new FCA rules, which include a ban on cold calling and commission paid to intermediaries, and high standards on governance and financial resilience. Funeral plan holders will be able to refer complaints about a firm to the Ombudsman and will be covered by the FSCS if their provider goes out of business.
TWP are currently in a position to recommend third party providers of funeral plans to our clients.
