Pre-paid Funeral vs Funeral Insurance
Which is the most cost effective, funeral insurance or a pre-paid funeral? If you were to take out funeral insurance today and live for another twenty years, you could end up paying three or four times what a funeral costs. That’s why more people are choosing a pre-paid funeral with Bowra & O’Dea. You pay today’s cost and there are no ongoing payments or premium increases to worry about (excluding statutory changes which may affect prepaid funerals).Learn More
