Not sure if this is the right place to post this. My mil in still in early to mid stages but being a planner and knowing the inevitable is going to happen I want to save for her funeral. She has no money (other than benefits) and her view is 'the state will pay'. However on further probing she would like a burial and big Catholic mass (the works). I am wondering does anyone have any experience I funeral plans? Are they a good idea? I don't want to be landed with a massive bill when she does pass away. As she has no insight into her dementia and she's under 60 she thinks what we are talking about is going to happen in 20-30 yrs time. I can save a bit from her benefit every month to pay into this but just need to know if it's worth it.
