What Are Third Party Costs?

Disbursements (otherwise known as 3rd party charges) are cost elements of a funeral that are outside of the funeral plan provider’s/funeral director’s control. Most Safe Hands Funeral Plans (except Topaz) include an allowance of £1,200 (Pearl/Sapphire/Ruby) or £800 (‘Your Simplest’) to cover the following disbursements specifically: 

1. Cremation fee (or interment* fee, if burial)
2. Doctor’s fee
3. Minister’s/Celebrant’s fee for committal service at crematorium (or graveside, if burial)

*Interment means digging or opening of a grave

Currently, the national average for the above 3 disbursement is around £1000, meaning the £1,200 allowance included in the Pearl, Sapphire and Ruby plans is more than adequate to cover them at the present time. If, at the time of the Planholder’s death, the disbursements allowance is insufficient to cover the cost of the above 3 elements, then there will be a balance for the family or estate to pay.

How Your Money Is Kept Safe

• Monies are held securely by Pitmans Trustees Ltd (PTL). They are specialist fund trustees with £billions in trust.
• Fund is managed by UBS. They are a multinational investment management firm, voted ‘Best Global Investment Bank’ at the Global Finance World’s ‘Best Investment Banks Awards 2016’. UBS analyse the financial markets and advise PTL on how best to invest the trust monies in order to maximise the growth of the fund. To date, the fund has been invested in a range of asset classes including equities, index-linked and fixed interests bonds and cash.
• Fund is audited by Mazars LLP. They are a top ten UK audit and accounting firm and one of Europe’s largest audit and accounting firms.
• Fund was set up in conjunction with Wrigley’s LLP – a law firm specialising in trust funds.

Safe Hands Funeral Plans work on the same basis as most other plan providers, in that the money a customer pays for their plan is invested in a ring-fenced trust fund (in Safe Hands Funeral Plans’ case, with Pitmans Trustees Ltd). The investment of the trust fund is managed by Swiss global financial services company, UBS.

Through the investment of the trust fund, the monies grow in value over the course of the Planholder’s lifetime. Then when the Planholder passes away, monies (+RPI uplift as applicable) are released from the trust fund and paid to a local, reputable, funeral director who then carries out the funeral in accordance with the instructions contained in the plan.

Because the trust fund is entirely independent of the company, in the highly unlikely event that Safe Hands Funeral Plans should go into liquidation or cease trading for any reason, because the trust fund is not an asset of the company (and because the Planholders are the primary beneficiaries of the trust fund) our Planholders’ investments would remain secure and ring-fenced specifically for the purpose of providing the funeral they have bought and paid for.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Take Out A Funeral Plan?
A funeral plan is a means by which people can protect their loved ones against rising funeral costs and help eliminate any uncertainty or indecision regarding what a person’s preferred arrangements should include.
Do Funeral Plans Cater for Burial or Just Cremation?
Yes. In their basic format, Funeral Plans cover cremation only. However, with the exception of the Direct Cremation and ‘Your Simplest’ plan options, ALL can be tailored for burial, although the customer will need to purchase a burial plot themselves directly from whomever owns the cemetery at which they wish to be buried.
Can A Plan Be Transfred From One Person To Another?
Yes. Most Funeral Plan can be transferred into the name of an alternative person. To do so, the plan purchaser needs to contact  Funeral Plan Company directly, who will then make the necessary alteration.
Do I Need To Have A Medical?
No. Unlike with most insurance products, customers purchasing a Funeral Plan are not required to pass any medical tests.
Are Trust Funds Audited?

Yes. The assets and liabilities of the trust must, at least once every 3 years, be determined, calculated, and verified by an actuary who is a Fellow of the Institute of Actuaries or the Faculty of Actuaries. The first of these triennial reports was prepared by Mazars LLP, a top ten UK audit and accounting firm and one of Europe’s largest, and is dated 21st October 2016. The report complies with the Technical Actuarial Standards on Funeral Plans, Modelling Data and Reporting, as issued by the Financial Reporting Council, and the Actuarial Profession Standards issued by the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries.
