An Age Co Funeral Plan helps you to plan and pay towards a funeral in advance. It helps to lessen the financial weight of a funeral and reduces the stress and worry for your loved ones.
Your plan will support you and your family every step of the way. This includes support and confidential guidance from a trusted Funeral Director and free telephone bereavement advice and support service for your family or friends.
According to The SunLife Cost of Dying Report 2020**, there has been a rise in the overall cost of dying which has increased by another £289, since 2018. Currently, the average cost of a funeral now stands at £4,417 and this is predicted to rise to £5,285 by 2024.
Once an Age Co Funeral Plan is paid for, that's it. You will not be asked for a penny more towards the services set out in your plan. For a cremation funeral, unlike some providers, the cremation fee, Minister's fees^ and Funeral Director's fees are all included.
The Age Co Funeral Plan guarantees to cover the funeral plan services outlined in your plan.
You are guaranteed a professional and compassionate funeral. There is a network of over 1,300 Dignity owned and approved Funeral Directors, many of which have been established for generations, providing a caring service to families in their local communities.

^ A Minister of Religion or Officiants fee is covered equal to the amount paid for a standard funeral service at the crematorium or cemetery as listed in the Church of England Table of Parochial Fees.
