Bow out with Dignity

Just like making a will, or inheritance tax planning, funeral planning should be an important part of the financial planning process for anyone age 50 and over.

In light of the ageing population and the increasing cost of funerals in the UK, the demand and market for funeral plans is expected to grow considerably. It may surprise you to hear that a cremation funeral currently costs on average £2,733. Worse yet, these costs are expected to more than double over the next 5 years.

As part of the services offered by RIS we would like to introduce The Dignity Pre-Paid Funeral plan. This covers funeral costs and fixes those costs at the current market rate, which protects against any future increases. It is a fixed price plan and includes the services necessary for a cremation funeral.
