The Golden Charter Funeral Plan Guarantee

Price inflation affects the cost of living…and dying.  However, with a Golden Charter funeral plan, you can protect yourself against these rising costs.  No matter how much the cost of your Funeral Director’s services may have increased by the time they are required, they will be covered.  You can be sure that once you’ve paid for the plan, there will be no more to pay for these services.

Each plan also includes an allowance to cover the third party costs that are not within your Funeral Director’s control, these costs are known as ‘Disbursements’. These include the fees for the crematorium, doctors and clergy.  If these costs were to increase more than the growth of the plan, there may be a balance to pay at the time of the funeral.

When you take out a Golden Charter Funeral Plan, you have the reassurance that your money is protected. You select how you wish to pay for your Plan and, depending on your choice, your money is paid into the Golden Charter Trust or to one of the UK’s leading life assurance companies.  The Golden Charter Trust is a separate entity, run by an independent Board of Trustees, whose sole purpose is to manage the Trust’s Funds.

When the time comes, we receive the payment from Golden Charter, to provide the agreed services to your family.  No matter how much costs have risen in the intervening period, your loved ones will not be asked for a penny more for the guaranteed services included within your Plan.
