As people in the UK feel less wedded to tradition, the type of funerals on offer have become increasingly more varied. This can sometimes mean that the price tag goes up too, and a funeral might be more than you think.
Most people don’t want the costs of their funeral to be the responsibility of their loved ones, particularly if expensive. The average cost of a funeral between 2016-2021 was around £5,631*.These costs can be a strong motivator for people over 50 to take out life cover.
This type of cover offers guaranteed acceptance to UK residents aged between 50 and 80 and can offer a payout an amount to help cover funeral costs.
Alternatively, payouts can be put towards settling minor debts or simply as a gift to your loved ones.
Whatever the reason, life insurance can give reassurance to you and your loved ones that a few important things are taken care of.

Depending on how long you live, you could pay more in monthly payments than the cash sum we pay out when you die. The cash sum you choose is fixed and inflation (the rising cost of goods and services) will reduce its value over time. We only pay out on death. There is no cash-in value at any time. In the event of death by accident, we will pay 2 times the full cash sum. In the event of death by natural causes, where death occurs in the first 12 months from the policy start date, we will pay 1.5 times the total premiums paid towards the cover. In the event of death by natural causes, where death occurs after the first 12 months from the policy start date, we will pay the full cash sum, please refer to Post Office Over 50s Life Cover Terms and Conditions for further information.
We will stop collecting payments on the policy anniversary date on or after you reach age 95 or when you die, whichever is sooner. If you stop making your payments your cover will end and you’ll get nothing back. We can tell you about our cover but cannot advise if it is right for you. If you are not sure if it is right for you, please ask your financial advisor, or visit unbiased.co.uk to find one who could help.
