Funeral Funding Feature

Funeral Funding is automatically built into our Over 50s Policy and is designed to contribute towards the cost of your funeral.

What is Funeral Funding?

Designed to contribute towards the cost of your funeral, Funeral Funding allows you and your loved ones some financial peace of mind at a very difficult time. Payment is made directly from the policy to the chosen funeral director at the time of settling the final bill negating the need for the cost of the funeral to be found up front.

Golden Charter, our chosen partner, will allocate a funeral director, who will make a £300 contribution towards your funeral costs. If you are considering a direct to cremation funeral, please note the £300 contribution will not apply*. Golden Charter are one of the UK's largest funeral plan providers**, with a network of over 2,800 funeral directors across the UK^.

If there is any money remaining from the proceeds of your policy, after the cost of your funeral has been met, this will be paid to your estate. If there is a short fall, this will need to be made up by your next of kin.

Funeral Funding is not a Funeral Plan and might not always meet the full cost of a funeral. You are only able to have funeral funding on one policy, whether with OneFamily or another provider.

*A direct to cremation funeral means any cremation where there is a direct disposal service only and therefore no funeral service, funeral procession (or other services such as family viewing, limousine(s), embalming or delivery of ashes) and where the cremation is arranged at a crematorium at a date and time chosen by the allocated funeral director and without anyone attending other than the funeral director's staff.

**Based on recent market share of funeral plans sold. For details please see Funeral Planning Authority statistics 2020 at and Golden Charter Annual Review 2019/20 at

^Based on number of independent funeral director branches in the UK accepting Golden Charter plans at 16 April 2021.
