Planning for your own funeral may not be on top of your priority list, but on reflection, by being prepared today, you will be helping your loved ones in the future.
Funeral plans work by putting your funeral wishes down in writing today, and then paying for them based on today’s prices.
The cost of an average funeral continues to rise (costs have risen by 92% over the last 11 years*) and it’s predicted that if this rising trend continues the average funeral will cost £6,713* by 2025. *Sunlife Cost of Dying Report 2015 and Golden Charter calculations based on Sunlife Cost of Dying research.
MRIB has partnered up with Golden Charter, the UK’s largest funeral plan provider working on behalf of over 3,300 local funeral directors.
Golden Charter’s 50+ Funeral Plan allows you to pay for your funeral director’s services included in the plan in advance at today’s prices – giving you and your loved ones peace of mind, and protecting yourself against the rising costs.
MRIB customers purchasing a funeral plan can also benefit from an included Will Service, delivered by a qualified Golden Charter expert. This includes those without a current Will in place, and those that have a Will but require alterations.
