    Rip-off funeral plan providers who prey you when you're at your most vulnerable.

    Following an ITV programme this week that exposed the issues with ‘pre-planned’ funeral plans, I’ve received a flurry of emails and messages from readers on the subject.

    Pre-paid funeral plans are financial plans that you pay into (often monthly) where you are essentially saving up to pay for your funeral.

    The main selling points of these plans are that they take the stress and worry of arranging and paying for a funeral away from your loved ones when you die.

    I suppose that this is just another form of insurance if you do it the way you want to and NOT by getting phone-calls or e-mails on the subject without asking for them.

    One to be very wary about I think.

    Yes, I have noticed this too as it has become clear that the funerial sellers are too often willing to target the elderly.

    Yes, if the elderly want to take the cost of their funeral away from their relatives then that is one way to do it.
