Addressing the specific concerns of older people
Age Co Funeral Plans were introduced in specific response to feedback from Age Co supporters and the people they help. They highlighted that funeral costs are a significant concern among older people, with many concerned their loved ones would face large bills to arrange their funeral. They were also concerned about leaving final wishes regarding their funeral unknown, leaving behind a lot of worry for loved ones as well.
In response, Age Co started working with Dignity to provide a solution. Dignity are a major provider of funeral related services across the country, owning hundreds of approved funeral directors and over 40 crematoria across the UK. Over 30 years later, Age Co now offer 3 different funeral plan ranges, all provided by Dignity and Simplicity Cremations, who are part of the Dignity Group.

One of the reasons Age Co chose to partner with Dignity is their tremendous track record for customer service. Their feedback scores are outstanding, including 98% of customers who have used the services of a Dignity Funeral Director saying they would recommend Dignity to a friend or family member^.
