Why should I pay now - it'll be years before I need a funeral?
We'll all need a funeral one day and it's costing more every year, so it makes sense to plan your funeral
while you can and fix the cost by paying for it now.
What happens if I die before I finish paying all my instalments?
Don't worry-your funeral will be arranged in accordance with your Plan and any balance will be paid by
your executors or from your estate.
I'm often away visiting family or on holiday - what happens then?
If you're in the UK all is fine, but if you're going overseas we recommend that you make sure you have
travel insurance that includes full repatriation cover.
I think I'd like to sort something out for my husband. Can I?
Yes, you can take out a plan for anyone else. All correspondence will be sent directly to the person
arranging the plan and confidentiality is assured.
Can I have my own Funeral Director?
Unlike some plans a Golden Leaves Plan allows you to choose your own Funeral Director. Alternatively,
we can recommend and appoint one on your behalf if you would prefer.
We're thinking about living abroad - can we still arrange a plan that works out there?
Yes you can. If you live overseas then we have a plan specifically for you. Our plan has dual country
cover, providing for a funeral in the country of residence or the UK. So even if you decide to move back
to the UK you will still be covered.
Am I guaranteed to be accepted?
Yes you are. With a Golden Leaves Plan there's no age limit and no medical tests or good health
declarations, unlike some other insurance-based plans.
Are there any extra costs?
The services of the Funeral Director are guaranteed to be covered - in accordance with the Terms and
Conditions. Certain disbursements may require a further payment at the time of the funeral, but we will
guarantee any increase to these costs in line with Retail Price Index (RPI).
How do I know the money will be there when it's needed?
The money you've paid for your funeral is held securely in an independently managed Trust. Merrill
Lynch and Quilter are currently tasked to manage the long-term growth of the fund, specifically to meet
the increasing cost of funeral services.
