What is a Prepaid Funeral

How do prepaid funeral plans work?

A prepaid funeral plan is a sensible way of recording your funeral wishes and making a payment at todays price to make either a complete or substantial contribution to your funeral expenses at the time of need hopefully years in the future. Your funeral director expenses are guaranteed to be covered but disbursements do carry a risk that there could be a shortfall between the redemption value and at need value of those costs at the time of need. Talk to us for more information.

Why choose prepaid funeral plans?

Prepaying your funeral puts you in control of your affairs and gives both yourself and those closest to you true peace of mind at what can often be an emotional and difficult time. You can find out more about how our plans work here Why choose an Open Prepaid Funeral Plan?

There are several options when choosing Open for your prepaid funeral plan. We offer a range of carefully constructed fixed-price funeral options, ranging from a Prepaid Unattended Cremation plan to a fully bespoke plan personalised just for you. This can be done with our fully trained and experienced Open Advisers, just talk to us to learn more. All our plans can be adjusted to meet area requirements. Learn more about our selection of prepaid funeral plans.

Once a plan has been chosen, payment arrangements agreed and your chosen funeral director nominated and confirmed, you can rest assured that your funeral wishes will be fulfilled and that there will be no further payments in relation to funeral services required. Third party costs (also known as Disbursements) are set by local authorities and external bodies and therefore it cannot be guaranteed that 100% of the disbursement costs (not funeral director costs) will be covered at the time of need.

For those you leave behind, planning your funeral is a caring and selfless act. It relieves the stress and worry from those closest to you, at a time when they need help and support.
