By selecting the Funeral Benefit option, you are choosing to ‘charge’ your cash lump sum to Dignity Funerals Ltd (Dignity). This means that your cash lump sum will be paid directly to Dignity rather than your estate. Dignity will then add 10% to the contribution your cash sum makes towards your funeral costs - completely free of charge.

If your funeral costs less than your cash lump sum, the 10% will be calculated on the amount used to pay towards your funeral costs. If there is any money leftover, this will be paid back to your estate (see example below).

If your funeral costs more than your cash lump sum, the 10% will be calculated on your cash lump sum and your family will just have to pay the balance of the funeral cost to Dignity.

If you have chosen a level cash sum the maximum additional funeral benefit is £1,000.

If you have chosen to protect your cash sum from the effects of inflation, the additional funeral benefit limit of £1,000 will also increase in line with inflation.

When the time comes, Dignity will provide advice and guidance to your family on all aspects of the funeral and will agree the funeral services required with your next of kin.
