Parents’ Funeral Policy
September 16, 2018
The death of a loved one is always traumatic, especially when it comes to burying your children or your parents. These are your very own flesh and blood. When death comes, the last thing we feel like is having to deal with all the decisions and responsibilities that accompany making funeral arrangements, but part of caring for parents includes discussing their wishes regarding funeral arrangements and services. That’s when you need a parents’ funeral policy.
Parents’ Funeral Policy – Think of all of the Costs associated with Death
It is reassuring to know that there are parents’ funeral plan providers like Clientele and Edgars who help you simply get on with making all those necessary arrangements. They understand that planning a funeral for someone in your extended family such as your parents-in-law can be costly.
Usually, planning a funeral would be the responsibility of the deceased’s spouse, but they may have already passed on. For a small additional premium, an optional add-on such as a parent’s funeral benefit means you can extend your funeral cover to include your parents and parents-in-laws. If any of them were to pass away, you would be able to cover the costs of their funeral through your policy and eliminate incurring debt.
The benefit of Clientele and Edgars Funeral Plans is that no medical exams are required, and the application process is quick and straightforward.
