Here are some answers to the most frequently asked questions about Independent Way Plus Funeral Plans. However, if you have any further questions, we are
here to help. Just call us on (01702) 558717
What if I move to a different area?
We are still able to look after the arrangements if you prefer although there may be some additional fees for our attendance. Alternatively you may select a different Funeral Director. Golden Charter should be advised of any permanent change of address as this may affect the plan entitlements.
What if death occurs while I'm on holiday?
As an additional benefit, Golden Charter will pay the transportation charges if death occurs away from your permanent address, but still within mainland UK. If you intend to travel overseas, we recommend that your travel or medical insurance policy includes cover for repatriation costs back to the UK as your funeral plan covers the cost of transportation of your body from the relevant UK airport or port to the funeral directors’ premises.
What if I'm not in good health?
Golden Charter promise to accept your application, regardless of your state of health.
What if I want to take out a plan for someone else?
Complete the plan holder’s representative box on the application form, and Golden Charter will arrange for all correspondence to be sent to you. Complete confidentiality is assured.
What if I live to be 100 years old?
No matter how old you are, no matter how much funeral directors’ costs may rise, you and your loved ones will never be asked for a penny more for the funeral director’s services guaranteed within your funeral plan.
What if I already have a will in place?
That’s fine, the Will is optional. However, it’s important to remember that even if you already have a Will, it should reflect current circumstances, so now is a good opportunity to include a Will within your funeral plan. Alternatively you could gift the Will to a close relation.
If you wish to have a discussion with one of our funeral arrangers, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We can talk through yours and your loved one’s needs and discuss how we can best celebrate their life.
