How does Funeral Insurance work?

Funeral insurance is a type of policy designed to help cover the costs of a funeral when the insured person passes away. It provides a way for individuals to plan and prepare for their funeral expenses in advance, reducing the financial burden on their loved ones after their death.

But what’s typically covered under a funeral insurance policy?

  • Burial or cremation fees
  • Costs to cover the transportation of the deceased
  • The cost of a casket or coffin
  • Funeral director costs

This insurance can offer peace of mind by ensuring that funeral expenses are covered and planned for in advance, but it's important that you review the terms and conditions of the funeral insurance policy carefully, including any exclusions or limitations, to understand precisely what’s covered and what isn’t.

You can get clarity around this by speaking to insurance specialists, including those in the Howden Life & Health team, who can also help determine which policies work best for you and your family.
