Option to include contribution towards third party costs (Disbursements)
The essential disbursement costs will be taken in to consideration and included in the plan if required.
Disbursements are the third party costs which have to be paid to enable the funeral to take place. These costs vary in different areas of the country and are out of the chosen Funeral Directors control.
In most instances the necessary Disbursements are:
Plans can include a contribution intended to cover most, if not all disbursement costs. You can find details of the required contributions during the configuration of your funeral plan.
The amount included in the plan towards the disbursements is increased each year in line with the Retail Prices Index but, because the third party charges are not within our direct control, we cannot guarantee that they will be 100% covered by the contributions. You can choose NOT to make an allowance towards disbursements, but these will then need to be paid at the time of the funeral by either your estate or relatives.
