Pay Monthly Funeral Plans – What do Capital Life offer?

Pay Monthly Funeral Plans – What do Capital Life offer? 

Planning your own funeral has many benefits, most importantly it can help to ease the emotional strain from your loved ones when the time comes. At Capital Life we offer pay monthly funeral plans, which means that the cost of your funeral can be broken down into monthly instalments that are suitable to your budget. 

According to the SunLife Cost of Dying Report 2021, the average cost of a basic funeral now stands at around £4184; paying for your funeral monthly can make this a lot more manageable and relieve the financial burden from you and your loved ones. As the average time that a funeral will take place is around two weeks after the death, depending on religion or culture, it is a large sum of money that not many would have readily available. 

As the monthly payments will remain the same for the chosen term of your plan as they are when you take it out, unless you decide to pay it off earlier, pay monthly funeral plans are something that can easily be factored into your monthly budget. Spreading the cost over a longer period of time will mean that your monthly payments are less however there is a supplemental charge for each year that the plan is paid over.*
