Many of us opt for a life living in the sunshine in our later years or as part of a life enhancement decision. Planning for every eventuality when making a major move is really important, loved ones are no longer close by and we cannot always choose where we pass away.

Funeral insurance cover is a must in order to avoid adding financial pressures to what is always a very emotional time for family & friends - If you have chosen to retire to the sun, then you must think of those who will be left to deal with laying you to rest when your time comes to pass this life into another.
