Are you concerned about your Funeral Plans Costs?

Researchers say that the cost of funerals in the last decade has risen by a staggering 80%. It really does make sense to consider taking out a funeral plan. Pay for it up front and you are protected from future rises. Also you can chose exactly how you wish to have your funeral and takes the stress away from the family.

Shandip Shah
Principal – Balance Consultancy

In the know...

It is a fact: many people dread the thought of making a Will and have a great reluctance to come to a decision as to how they would like their possessions to be distributed when they pass away. Nearly 70% of the population eligible to make a Will, do not have one.

There is a commonly held belief that if you die without a Will (intestate), then all your assets simply pass on to your spouse. This is not true and you need to read our section on dying without a Will. Dying intestate generally will mean your assets will not be distributed as you probably wished to. Needless to say the amount of delay, grief and distress this sometimes causes to those who you leave behind. On a tax point of view, dying intestate often results in far greater tax than is necessary. The moral is to draw up a Will now and don’t leave your loved ones to pick up the pieces.
