SAIF’s on-going campaign about Debt Relief Order

March 11, 2015   //   No Comments

SAIF’s request to the government to make Funeral accounts exempt from a Debt Relief Order (DRO) was not met favourably.

In fact the government have now increased their limit to £20,000 instead of £15,000.  This means that there will be more of a chance that a DRO is raised against a funeral account.  We can only suggest that Funeral Directors seriously consider asking for the account to be paid in advance, or at least a large portion of the account be paid in advance.  We will continue with our dialogue with the government and ask that you keep SAIF informed if you received an order against your business.
