All plan holder funds are safeguarded until needed. Here’s how:
Just like other big funeral plan providers in the UK, we use a Trust to safeguard the funds needed to meet funeral expenses
Whether you’ve paid in a single lump sum or over a fixed number of instalments, then your money will be placed into a secure, independently managed Trust
When the money is needed for a cremation, the Trust requires an invoice, proof of death and 2 Trustee signatures to allow the funds to be released to pay for it
Your monthly payments are used to purchase a ‘whole of life’ policy from Scottish Friendly, one of the largest mutual life companies in the UK which has been around since 1862
The insurer can only make a payment under the plan to provide the planholder’s funeral or provide a customer refund. If the firm is in default then payments will be made to the customer, their next of kin or another party based on the findings of the Financial Services Compensation Scheme
At the last review on 31/12/22, the Trust had a very healthy surplus, with a funding level of 117.0% calculated on a best estimate basis, meaning that the Trust has more than enough funds to cover the costs of all plan holders’ cremations as promised. The Trust surplus is monitored monthly by both the Trustees and the Board of Directors to ensure this strength is maintained.
