Joint Funeral Plans for Couples
Did you ever consider that everything in life as a married couple is done and considered together, except when it perhaps comes to funeral arrangements?
You of course can have a family plot or arrange separately to be buried together in the same graveyard even if your denomination / religion is different.
...And that's why I've taken out a prepaid funeral plan… So, when I go, my family can give me a dignified send-off without worrying about the cost."
Is it morbid to think this way?
We don’t think so, in fact not many funeral directors would encourage a joint funeral arrangement. Some may and charge extra for the additional paperwork – you require two copies, one each or one for however many people are named.
The Finer Detail of Joint Funeral Plans
If both named in the documents should die at the same time, a pre paid plan can pay out for one of the parties named while the remainder of the funeral is taken from funds from the estate.
Incidences arrive where two people arrange funeral plans together as a couple but then decide to break in a relationship.
The documents themselves are not written in stone nor meant to be entwined.
Each person even if married has access to their own copy of a Joint funeral plan, much like a joint Will and Testament.
The Husband cannot alter the Wife's plan nor visa versa, indeed they can adapt their versions any time they wish.
The concept of first come first served would still apply however unless somehow legally amended by both parties.

It’s a bleak attitude but when considering financial planning it does save the awkward rush to find the money for a funeral.
You can also buy two funeral plans at the same time. You may be lucky to get a discount – it’s not a marketing tactic that is not deployable.
Effectively every Married couple and Civil partner and people who live together long term as friends can have a joint funeral plan which can cover the cost of one funeral or both.
A group of friends down the pub can draw up a similar legal document and simply start monthly payments towards a joint pre paid funeral plan at the next round of drinks.
