When paying for a funeral after a loved one has died, there are options available to help manage costs. With funeral finance, you can spread the cost of the funeral over a period of 1 – 5 years. To find out if you are eligible, follow the three steps below.
Decide the kind of funeral you want for your loved one and discuss it with your funeral director. They will be able to advise and offer guidance so that you have a fuller understanding of what will happen on the day. They will then take care of the arrangements, ensuring your wishes are met.
Your funeral director will inform you of the total cost of the funeral, taking into account any disbursements or extras such as additional funeral cars or cremation urns. Once you have the full costing of your loved one's funeral, you can decide whether you want funeral finance to cover all or just part of it.
Whether you are looking to spread the cost of all or part of your loved one's send off, Funeral Safe provides a financing option that can be adjusted to suit your needs. Once you have completed Step 1 and Step 2, you can tailor your own monthly repayment plan via the finance calculator and make your application.
Your Dignity funeral director is there to help at this difficult time. They will guide you through the planning of your loved one's funeral, providing informed advice and giving you the support you need. They will arrange the funeral in accordance with your wishes, ensuring everything you ask for on the day is ready for when you pay your final respects.
Dignity has transparent pricing, ensuring you are fully aware of the total cost beforehand and not landed with any hidden charges afterwards. This will allow you to apply for funeral financing in the safe knowledge the whole funeral will be covered.
Dignity offers funeral financing through Funeral Safe. You have the option of covering the cost of all or part of your loved one's funeral (up to £7,500), with monthly repayments over the course of 1 -5 years.
Once your application has been approved, the finance is paid directly to your funeral directors, and you then have the option to pay off all or some of the balance within three months, with no interest accrued on the amount paid. After the three months, your monthly repayments begin on the terms agreed.
Once you have the arrangements and costing in place for your loved one's funeral, you can apply for finance by following the Funeral Safe link on your funeral directors' web page.
