Marsden Building Society funeral plans are provided by our selected partner Dignity, one of the UK’s leading providers of prepaid funeral plans.
A Prepaid Funeral Plan lets you pay for a future funeral at today’s price, protecting you against rising funeral costs and helping you to leave more behind for your loved ones. It helps protect your family from emotional and financial stress by allowing you to make your wishes known and get your affairs in order.
The Benefits of a Prepaid Funeral Plan
- It helps saves you money
By paying at today’s prices you can avoid paying future increases for services included in the plan.
- It’s a fixed price plan
Once paid in full, you will never be asked for a penny more for the services included in the plan.
- It guarantees
To be unaffected by changes in interest rates or inflation.
- It’s practical
All the arrangements in the plan are taken care of.
- Guaranteed to be accepted
If you’re aged 50 or over and there are no medical questions.
- It protects your loved ones
Helping to save them money and worry.
- It’s flexible
You can pay a lump sum or spread the cost of the plan with monthly instalments. Plans paid over a period greater than 12 months will incur an administration fee.
- Financial assurance for the unexpected
If you choose to pay for your plan by monthly instalments over more than 12 months, but pass away before it has been fully paid for, Dignity will cover your outstanding balance. That’s the Dignity Promise†.
- It’s trusted
The money you pay for your plan goes straight into a secure, independent Trust Fund.
†Alternative fixed instalment periods of up to 5 years are available provided that all payments over any instalment term longer than 12 months are completed by the 85th birthday of the eldest person named on the plan. Plans purchased over a period greater than 12 months will incur an additional fee, and include the Dignity Promise.
