How secure is the Safe Hands Plan

Safe Hands Company - Review

Safehands mainly offer their plans through professional Will Writers, financial advisers and state planners and work in partnership with a network of independent funeral directors.

They registered with the Funeral Planning Authority in July 2019.

Our Verdict

Safe Hands are now registered with the Funeral Planning Authority (FPA) and endorsed by the National Federation of Funeral Directors however this is a trade body more concerned with Funeral Directors as opposed to funeral plan providers.

Although their plans include one of the largest contributions towards third party costs, it is still a contribution which means that there could be more to pay when the time comes.

Our Recommendation

We recommend the Dignity Plan as they guarantee to fix ALL funeral costs listed in the plan which includes the funeral director's services and the cremation & ministers fees, so you can be sure that your family will have nothing more to pay.

You will never have to worry about rising funeral costs as they are guaranteed at the price you pay today - giving you peace of mind that everything is taken care of and when the time comes your family will only have to make one phone call.
