Payments and provision of the Funeral Plan
You must pay the total fees set out in the Purchase Agreement Form and Additional Services Forms, including the Choice Funeral Plan Fees, Third Party Fees and Additional Products & Services.
Where you pay by instalments:
- If you miss two consecutive payments, we will write to you, detailing the extent of any shortfall and request you pay any shortfall within 10 business days of the date of our letter. If payment is not received within this time, we reserve the right to cancel the Funeral Plan and a cancellation fee may apply or we may not provide any services whilst the payment remains outstanding after 10 business days.
- Full payment for the Funeral Plan must be made before the Covered Individual reaches the age of 85.
- Changes to the amount of Voluntary Contributions can be made only once the Funeral Plan has been paid in full.
- In the event that the Covered Individual dies within 12 months of Activation, we are not obliged to provide the services in the Funeral Plan unless the outstanding payments are made.
- If the Covered Individual dies within 12 months of Activation and the death is Accidental, or if the Covered Individual dies after 12 months (irrespective of the cause of death) then no further payments will need to be made towards Funeral Director Services. Depending upon the amount of Voluntary Contributions made, additional payments may need to be paid for Third Party Fees and Additional Products & Services. Accidental death means a bodily injury is sustained, caused by accidental, violent, external and visible means, which is solely and independently of any other cause results in death. Accidental death does not include death caused by ingesting drugs, unless they were prescribed to the Covered Individual by a registered doctor in the UK, or a coroner’s verdict of accidental death in circumstances other than where the death is caused by accidental, violent, external and visible means, which is solely and independently of any other cause results in death.
- You may make one initial down payment towards the Funeral Plan, in order to reduce your monthly payments. After this, you are able to pay off the Funeral Plan sooner by making one full payment of the final balance. However, you cannot make ad hoc payments.
- Please speak to us if you wish to change your instalment plan duration.
