When you take out a Golden Charter Funeral Plan, you have the reassurance that your money is protected. You select how you wish to pay for plan and, depending on your choice, your money is paid into the Golden Charter Trust or to one of the U.K.'s leading life assurance companies. The Golden Charter Trust is a separate entity, run by an Independent Board of Trustees, whose sole purpose is to manage the Trusts Funds.
Your money grows, and when the time comes, your selected funeral director receives the payment, including any growth, and uses this money to provide the agreed services to your family. No matter how much costs have risen in the intervening period, your loved ones will not be asked for a penny more for the guaranteed services included within your plan.
