Do Promis Life offer funeral plans?

promis life funeral coverPromis Life do not offer prepaid funeral plans but the do sell ‘Funeral Protection Promis’ which is essentially a funeral insurance plan (life insurance plan). This type of plan pays out a cash sum when you die that can be used to help with funeral costs.

The Funeral Protection Promis Plan offers cover from £1,000 to £20,000 and you can choose to have your monthly premiums fixed or increasing. You are guaranteed to be accepted for the plan if you are a UK resident between the ages of 30 and 79 and there are no medicals or health questionnaires to pass.

Promis Life offer a ‘48 hour claims promis’ which ensures that upon death, the cash sum is paid quickly, which obviously can be essential if looking to help with funeral costs. Promis Life funeral cover guarantees that once they have received the appropriate documentation to ensure the claim is valid, they will make the payment within 48 hours (2 business days).

If for whatever reason Promis Life fail to make the payment within these timeframes, they will pay an extra £100 on top of the monies claimed.

How does the Funeral Protection Promis Plan from Promis Life compare to Funeral Plans?

A prepaid funeral plan essentially does two things; it saves money as you are paying for your funeral service at today’s prices, therefore avoiding future inflation. It also saves your family from the upset and worry of arranging a funeral when the time comes; just one phone call to the funeral director and they will take care of everything.

With the Funeral Protection Promis plan as offered by Promis Life, you pay a monthly premium in return for a cash sum that is paid out when you die. The cash sum can then be used to help with funeral costs. This means that the funeral costs may not necessarily be paid for (that all depends on the funeral costs versus the cash sum paid out) and your family will still need to make all of the funeral arrangements.

With the Funeral Protection Promis plan you can choose to have a fixed cash sum or one that increases, helping against the impact of inflation. Keep in mind though that due to funeral inflation, this may not be sufficient to cover the costs when the time comes. Also as you are paying your monthly premiums until you are 90 with this plan, there is a chance you could pay more into the plan than the cash sum paid out.
