Choice Funeral Plans are now regulated

Funeral Partners welcome the Financial Conduct Authority’s (FCA) announcement

From 29th July 2022, all Funeral Plans in the UK are regulated by the FCA. We believe this will give customers even more confidence and transparency when they purchase a Choice Funeral Plan, as well as the reassurance that money invested in our plans is protected. For security of our Funeral Plan funds, we work only with UK-based life assurance companies who are authorised by the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) and regulated by the FCA and the PRA.

We would like to assure all our existing clients who have purchased a Choice Funeral Plan via our Funeral Partners network or approved partner, prior to the 29th July, your plan is safe and you do not need to take any action. If you have any questions, please contact

To plan your funeral your way and for more information on our Funeral Plans, speak to one our friendly team in branch or at Choice
