Using life insurance to pay for your funeral

Planning for your funeral costs and other final expenses is probably something you’d rather not think about. But, given that the average price of a funeral is around £3,499* and additional extras can quickly push up the price, planning for the inevitable can help your loved ones at a very distressing and emotional time.

Finding over £3,000 could be difficult at short notice, so having some financial support in place could be a great comfort to your loved ones, and help them focus on how to give you the send-off you deserve.

If you’re looking at ways to help pay for your funeral costs, Over 50s Life Insurance could help.


How Over 50s Life Insurance from British Seniors can help cover your funeral costs:

Our over 50s life insurance policy pays out a lump sum to your loved ones when you pass away. This sum can then be used towards the cost of your funeral, meaning your loved ones don't need to worry about finding a huge sum of money at an emotionally difficult time. 

  • You’re guaranteed to be accepted - so you don’t need to worry about poor health affecting your premiums.
  • You get a guaranteed lump sum payment - which your loved ones can use towards the cost of your funeral.
  • Your monthly premiums won’t go up – this is great if you want to plan for your future and know exactly how much you’ll need to pay each month
  • We aim to approve claims within days of receiving them – so your loved ones will have the money they need, when they need it most.
