Being financially prepared for your funeral spares your family and friends from an expense they might not be able to afford. A funeral can cost between $4,000 and $15,000¹ and many people do not have that kind of money immediately available.
With a pre-paid funeral plan you choose what kind of funeral you want and either pay for it upfront or pay instalments over a fixed period of time. Funeral directors as well as some insurance providers offer pre-paid funeral plans.
When weighing up the pros and cons of a pre-paid funeral plan, keep in mind that a funeral plan only covers your funeral costs, generally with no extra payout for accidental death.
