Coronavirus Financial Information………
Whilst it is always sensible to have Wills and other Estate Planning in place many people put of these simple steps. We can arrange Wills and other Estate Planning via phone, online, and email. Whilst the percentage of deaths is still thankfully low many people are now in self-isolation.
If family or friends want to assist with financial affairs they will not have the required authority to do, whilst a Lasting Power of Attorney is the best solution it is not currently a practical short term solution, as it can take many weeks to set up, because it has to be registered with the Office of the Public Guardian. As a interim measure a General Power of Attorney can be set up immediately.

We are now able to offer Dignity Funeral Plans. Key benefits over traditional plans:
Is that after just one year of payments the plan will cover the FULL cost of the funeral plan with other plans your family would have to find the difference?
The ability to spread the payments over 25 years (payment plan must be completed by the age of 85). Which means your monthly payments are reduced.
Example a 60 year old. Plan over 25 years Traditional Funeral £19.25 per month. After 12 months FULL Traditional Funeral is available WITHOUT your family having to make a top up payment to cover the shortfall between the amount you have paid in and the original cost of the funeral plan as is the situation with the majority of other plans.
