No one like to think about the time when we get older and have to start planning for our old age or our funeral but having a plan for our later life can be a positive way of being prepared. Giving you and your family peace of mind for the future. Everything from retirement to a pre-paid funeral plan can be planned in advance.
Planning For Retirement
Approaching retirement can seem daunting, all the arrangements that need to be made and what do you do? Start by working out your finances. Do you want to downsize? What pensions do you have in place?
Knowing what is possible and how you may need to adjust your life is so much easier when you know what budget you’re working with. Make a simple list of any investments and should you not be sure, get advice from a professional to help you make a plan that works for you and your budget.
Making A Will
Most of us don’t think about making a will, we tend to think, I can do that another time but taking the time now can save many issues. Outlining what you want to leave and to who will save any confrontations after your death. Appoint a person you trust to administer the will and ensure a copy is available to your solicitor so they can keep it safe for you.
Don’t forget power of attorney. Should you not be able to make your own choices, should you become to ill. There are two forms of power of attorney, one cover health & your well being and one that covers your general estate. Speak with a legal professional to get the best advice for making plans for a lasting power of attorney.
A Pre-Paid Funeral Plan
The cost of funerals is increasing every year. Planning will protect you from rising funeral costs. The reason for this is because if you buy a pre-paid funeral plan you are fixing the cost of the funeral directors’ services at today’s current prices. Most plans will allow you to pay monthly spreading the cost and give you options on the best plan to fit you.
