We’ve made some improvements to the benefits we offer from Funeralcare to all colleague members and their families.
I realise talking about your own or a loved one’s funeral is not easy or something you particularly want to do. But I also know how important your colleague benefits are to you, and so I want to share news of something we’ve put together to look after you and your family should the worst happen.
From Monday 27 February colleagues will receive a £500 discount on funerals for immediate family members if they choose Funeralcare.
And if the worst happens and you pass away while being employed at the Co-op, we’ll not charge for your funeral, apart from third party fees.
When the unexpected happens, you and your family can rely on being looked after by your colleagues in Funeralcare. I couldn’t be more proud of the caring, professional and sensitive service we offer and our commitment to do the best for each and every family we support.
Extra benefits for Pre-paid Funeral Plans
With a Pre-paid Funeral Plan you can arrange and pay for a funeral in advance, taking away much of the worry for your family. Our range of plans let you go into as much or as little detail as you like from choosing funeral vehicles and flowers to your favourite music and alternative places to be buried.
As a colleague member when you buy a Pre-paid plan for you and your close family, you’ll get an extra £250 discount plus the 5% back as a Co-op member. To redeem this offer please quote the discount code: FNCCOL-17 when applying online or in one of our funeral homes.
That means for colleagues the starting cost for a Funeral Plan would be £2,745 and of course all our plans are fully guaranteed meaning there won’t be another penny to pay however far into the future it is before the plan is redeemed.
Our colleagues are at the heart of our Co-op so what better way to show we care by helping you and your families at what would be a very difficult time.
