How to Pay for a Loved One's Funeral Without Going Into Debt

Video Blog: How to Pay for a Funeral Without Going Into Debt

It's a terrible time when you've just been bereaved, and the last thing you need is practical worries about paying for the funeral.

I was prompted to make this video my some very silly urban myths that were perpetuated in a recent popular TV drama. The storyline was about a family who'd just lost a close relative, and the worries they had about paying for her funeral.

It was a great bit of entertainment, but it contained some utter nonsense! For example, that a deceased person's bank account can't be accessed to pay for their funeral, because you need to go through Probate first. And even, that it's "illegal" to access a deceased person's bank account to pay their funeral bill! It's rather irresponsible to broadcast false information like this, even in a drama. The audience is bound to include recently bereaved people, who might believe what they see on the TV, only adding to their stress.

"I decided to get advice about making my will because I was about to travel abroad with my children for the first time in many years. My financial advisor recommended Will Written. I appreciated being able to have a consultation at home, so that I could discuss my situation in confidence. I was able to ask wide-ranging questions and Gina’s knowledge and expertise were reassuring. An estate plan was created for me that exactly suited my needs, resources, family and dependents. I have the peace of mind of having made a will that ensures my assets are safely passed to my children at the end of my life. I also have added protection if I become ill or disabled, because I have made a Lasting Power of Attorney appointing my best friend to manage my affairs if I lose the ability to manage them for myself.
