Funeral Plans

None of us like to think of a time when we are no longer here. That is why it is crucial that your clients plan ahead today. 

 

Taking the decision to plan for their funeral now and provide for its costs in advance allows your clients to get on with living their lives to the full, without having to worry about the future.

We offer a range of funeral plans that deliver peace of mind for your clients and their families. Our plans allow easy and accessible funding options that are flexible to every financial situation.

Our team of Regional Account Managers will be delighted to provide more information on our range of funeral plans, the services included, costs and payment options available to your clients as well as the advisor remuneration payable for introducing your client to Golden Charter.
