The who, what and why behind Prosperous Life

Who are Prosperous Life?

When making arrangements for your funeral it is important that you know who you are entrusting this important task to. At Prosperous Life we’re committed to making our clients as comfortable as possible when using our services, and part of this is letting you get to know us.

In 2017 our company was formed to provide affordable and hassle free funeral plans to those who needed them. Based in Cheshire, we wanted to become a part of the community, and as such we hire all of our staff locally, without outsourcing.

A big part of who we are is who we aim to help. We recognise that when we’re needed, someone must have suffered a loss, and as such we want to make this time as simple as we possibly can. This means taking the pressure off of a bereaved family, and allowing them to truly engage with, and sometimes even enjoy, the celebration of their loved one’s life.

We also work very hard to not be another run of the mill funeral plan provider. We’re not about the sombre imagery and doom and gloom sales pitches, we truly believe that death is something to be properly prepared for, and then forgotten about, letting you enjoy life while you live it. We’re not afraid to discuss the topic, and neither should you be, as the sooner you make arrangements for your time, the sooner you no longer have to worry about it.

What we do

Our funeral plans are just the start of what we do here at Prosperous Life. We offer the full package in customer support, ensuring each and everyone of our customers receive a premium service throughout.

We make the purchasing process easier

Buying a funeral plan shouldn’t be a long and complicated process. Here at Prosperous Life, we understand that the thought of planning a funeral can be a daunting task, which is why we make it our mission to ensure that the process is as easy and as comfortable as possible.

We invite anyone who may be considering taking out a prepaid funeral plan to get in touch with us online or by calling us on 0161 850 7586. Once the initial contact has been made, you’ll be able to talk to one of our friendly funeral plan managers who will talk you through the process step by step, and discuss your options.

We honour our promise that this is strictly a no obligation chat, and you will receive no pressure to buy from us. We’ll simply take the time to present you with the information you need, and answer any questions you may have. 

Should you decide that you’d like to take out a Prosperous Life funeral plan, you’ll be able to choose your preferred plan and make your arrangements with your dedicated plan manager who will then take care of the rest.

With no health checks required, you won’t be asked to fill out any unnecessary forms. We’ll simply make sure you’re happy with your arrangements and put them into place for you. It’s as simple as that!

We offer a personalised service

What sets Prosperous Life apart is our truly personalised approach to the funeral planning process. We take the time to understand your needs and requirements, so you are able to choose the plan that suits you.

We have three different plans available, all of which can be tailored to your individual needs. We’ll ask you if you have any personal requests, such as a preferred Funeral Director, and we’ll endeavour to fulfill your requests where possible.

A dedicated support team

A prepaid funeral plan is something that you will have for the rest of your life, so there’s a chance that over the coming weeks, months or years, you may find yourself in a different situation and may want to make changes to your plan as a result.

That’s why we have a dedicated team of funeral plan managers who can be easily contacted via phone or email, should you wish to make any changes to your plan, or have any queries at a later date.

When you take out a prepaid funeral plan with Prosperous Life, you’ll receive dedicated, ongoing support. We’re always here when you need us.

Why we do it

We’re here to give people the peace of mind necessary to move forward with their later life, living without worry and concern about what will happen once they are sadly no longer here.

First off, there is the financial aspect. As in, what will happen financially once I pass away?

In black and white terms, we help protect thousands of people across the United Kingdom against the rising costs of funerals in this country. Did you know that funeral costs rose by 38% between 2011 and 2017? Those who took out a funeral plan with a provider back at the start of that decade will most likely have fixed their costs at the then-price, and that is the same service we provide.

Our funeral plans also protect surviving family members from any financial burden. They will not have to pay for anything, as your wishes and requests are all confirmed as part of the work that we do for people.

That takes us on to the second second reason why we do what we do. We protect, and make good on the requests that you leave behind. Our Estate Planning services also help people to set out wills to protect assets and benefit loved ones.

Above all else though we’re here to make a difference mentally, by opening up the conversation surrounding death and helping people to have that conversation with their families. With the peace of mind that we provide, we hope that we can encourage people to have that open and honest dialogue with family members about later life.

Ultimately we are here to help people plan today, so that they can enjoy tomorrow and we are going to be posting plenty of content helping you to do just that in the future.

How we do it

At Prosperous Life to make all our customers feel at ease we encourage everyone to follow our simple six step process. It begins with an easy inquiry either online, phone call or you could request a home appointment. We offer a home appointment as we know traveling during a pandemic can be difficult so we understand you may not feel comfortable leaving your home.

Next on our journey you will have the option to select one of our exclusive funeral planning packages, so from here you will be able to personalise your plan. For example, if you wish to have a certain dress code or you would like a particular song played at the funeral, this will come under your personalised funeral plan.

Furthermore, to relieve the stress on you financially we are very flexible with how you wish to pay for the funeral plan. You can either pay the balance in full or you could select one of our multiple payment plans – we want to ease as much pressure on you as possible!

Now that the payment process has been complete you can now take comfort in the fact that you and your loved ones do not have to worry about the future, with your funeral plans taken care off. As the stress begins to wear off you can live life to the fullest and now you can refer a friend or family member to receive exclusive benefits and vouchers.
