Funeral Service Membership

The Service

Our aim In Shaa Allah is to provide a complete funeral Service for members which will include the provision of the cost of the burial and all the administration. The aim is to ease the financial burden on the family of the deceased during the time of bereavement. The intention of this committee is to provide the above service for those contributing members solely to seek the pleasure of Allah SWT.

This is in NO WAY A PROFIT-MAKING SCHEME WHEREBY INDIVIDUALS WILL MAKE ANY FINANCIAL GAINS. It is strictly to perpetuate a community spirit and help our Muslim brothers and sisters in their time of need.

The Process

All families involved in this service will make an annual contribution of £200.

This will cover the couple (or single parent) and all children under 18. There will be a one-off registration fee of £50 payable at the time of enrolling on the scheme. Once a child reaches the age of 18, he/she will be required to make an annual contribution of £100 until he/she gains full-time employment or gets married at which time the fee will increase to £200 at the time of renewal.

The committee MUST BE INFORMED of any change in the personal circumstance of a member. Failure to disclose any changes may invalidate the membership.

All funds will be kept in a bank Account. The account will have 3 signatories who are listed in this document. Two signatories will be required to clear payments for funeral arrangements. Statements will be available for anyone who requests to see them. Payment will be due strictly within the month of December each year. If the funeral service charge or the burial ground costs increase the annual payment will increase to reflect this. All members will receive notification of the following year’s charges in advance

    Consent

    I understand the Fiveways Funeral Committee has ownership of this scheme and I give my consent that any money I pay into the funeral scheme can be used at any time to pay towards the funeral of any current or future member of the scheme.

    I understand all the money I pay into the scheme will be held on account for me until it is required for me.

    I understand that I can pay for my funeral in full at any time. The money paid will be held on account and will only be used for my or my dependant’s funeral.

    In the event of my or my dependant’s death, if the total cost of the funeral has not been met, any shortfall will be paid by the next of kin / Inheritors If it is financially viable. This will only be approved after a meeting with the next of kin and will be subject to conditions.

    If my next of kin is unable to pay the shortfall of the funeral, the committee will cover the BASIC FUNERAL costs owed (this amount will vary depending on factors outlined on the “price list” documents attached).
