Hi I'm 50 in January and was planning to open an over 50's life insurance account due to medical issues.
But reading a few opinions aren't really that good.
Both my partner & I, not married, we're considering opening a high interest long term savings account just for funeral costs.
What would be the best option. We have no property so it would be purely for funeral costs.
Thanks
Nettie.

    Over 50 life insurance plans are an option of last resort for those that cannot get proper life assurance.

    Have you been declined a normal life assurance plan? (as that is usually the only time you would consider an over 50s plan)

    Yes been refused due to the medication I'm on.
    They recommend waiting till I was 50.

    What about paying for a funeral expense plan over a few years? This would become paid up after the payment period and then pays for the funeral whenever that may occur.
