Can I buy a funeral plan if I’m over 80?
Yes – Avalon’s range of plans have no age restrictions. Anyone can take out an Avalon plan with no questions about medical conditions. That’s why our funeral plans are perfect for over 80s.
How do funeral plans for seniors work?
A funeral plan lets you pay for and fix key costs at today’s prices. Your money is placed securely in an independently-managed Trust and when the time comes, everything in your plan is already paid for.
Avalon's plans for over 80s are an ideal way to choose what kind of funeral you want and to pay for key costs in advance.
With Avalon, you can choose the payment option with suits you to pay for your funeral plan, either in one lump sum, or in monthly instalments. If you choose monthly instalments, your plan must be fully paid before your 90th birthday. That means that if you take out a plan when you are 85, you can only choose a maximum repayment term of five years.
Are Avalon funeral plans a kind of funeral insurance for over 80s?
No, an Avalon funeral plan is not a type of funeral insurance for those over 80.
With insurance policies, such as over 50s life cover or term life insurance, your loved ones will receive a cash lump sum when you die. This can be spent on anything and may be less than the total amount of money you paid into the policy.
With a funeral plan for over 80s, the plan specifically pays for and covers the key costs of your funeral. When you plan is fully paid, monthly payments stop.
