Philippine Death Statistics

Philippine Death Statistics

 

Introduction

 

According to Philippine Statistics Authority, reported deaths in the year 2018 had reached 590,709, an increase of 2.0 percent from the previous year’s (2017) 579,237 deaths.

 

Moreover, the preliminary number of registered deaths from January to June 2020 reached 259,426.

 

With the statistics mentioned, how much are you prepared with death?

 

Appreciate Life Today

 

Life is precious and must be appreciated while it’s still there. However, are you prepared for death? After all, how often do we get a second chance?

 

Don’t be offended with the question – it’s the reality that makes us believe there’s an end to our existence. Life and death are connected to one another.

 

When the beginning is nearing its halfway, have you considered a plan that will fit your needs to help you prepare for the future? 

 

Let us discuss more about life plans for you to be aware of what it is.

 

In this blog, we will give you a complete guide to getting a life plan in the Philippines.

 

What is a Life Plan?

 

 

We’re all going to die. But the question is, are we prepared for it? Our life is a series of moments, and that’s the beauty of living. Nonetheless, as you grow old, you must know what priorities there are to sort out.

 

What if your time comes and your family doesn’t have the money and resources to process your funeral? Would you want to let them suffer paying the bills? Or would you re-adjust your decisions to plan everything ahead? Think twice.

 

The good thing is, a life plan is offered to solve issues like this.

 

In a nutshell, a memorial, or a life plan, is a prepaid service that includes the provision of memorial services, a casket of choice, and a host of other benefits.

 

A memorial plan enables the plan holder to “pre-pay” forthcoming expected memorial needs when the time comes. The fee is paid at a cost that is substantially lower than when availed of as needed.

 

A basic memorial plan package includes the following:

 

  • Memorial services (traditional burial or cremation)
  • Casket or urn of choice
  • Chapel or mortuary
  • Pick-up of the body from house or hospital
  • Embalming procedure

 

Imagine buying a casket right after someone dies. The casket’s value will be pricey, especially when you start buying other things needed for the funeral service, such as candles, flowers, and more.

 

By availing a life plan, you’ll just have to pay almost one-third of the price: casket, services, and all, making it a very cost-effective product.

With life plans, you can ease your family's financial burden, relieve the stress in making difficult decisions, and have a meaningful funeral.

 

Planning ahead for the future is one of the wisest decisions you can make during your lifetime.

 

 

Life Plan Types and Categories

 

There are different life plan types and categories in the Philippines. To avoid being confused, read out the following.

 

  • Life Plan vs. Life Insurance

 

Life plans and life insurance get people confused because they seem the same. Sorry to say, they’re not. There’s more to them for you to know.

 

A life insurance protects your family from experiencing financial burden in case of disability or death. A life insurance isn’t limited to death per se, as it also covers minor to major incidents.

 

According to Policy Genius, “a life insurance protects your loved ones from the risk of losing the financial support you provided when you die.”

 

On the other hand, a life plan is generally pre-selecting services/packages to pre-plan a funeral. Having a life plan will help you with the most immediate needs, like getting the body, preparing the body, and making sure there is a place for your departed loved ones.

 

 

With both categories, one thing is for sure: enjoy life and have peace of mind. In a lifetime, a comprehensive plan is a must!

 

 

  • Pays for the Rising Life Plan Costs

 

It’s better to avail a life plan now than to avail every service one at a time in the future. As time passes by, charges are revised, and it’ll be a hassle to pay more expensive stuff than before.

 

Save as much as possible. Nowadays, money is difficult to earn, so try and consider getting a life plan to relieve the financial burden.

 

 

  • More Life Plan Options Available

 

Though pre-planning a funeral is not that popular in the Philippines just yet, it doesn’t mean you should wait unprepared for the obvious. There are life plan options available for you to choose from, and it’ll be beneficial to study and be aware of them.

 

Aside from Golden Future Life Plans, several life plan companies are present to plan with you. Nonetheless, our offered life plans are developed to deliver the most value for our client’s hard-earned money. We believe that protection from any uncertainties in life is a must.

 

As early as today, you can set aside the funds for the funeral services and contact a life plan provider.

 

Your action today will save your family from being overwhelmed when the time comes for you to say goodbye. Do you want to burden them with bills? Or would you like to leave peacefully as it could be?

 

 

  • Funding Various Financial Goals

 

Living is tough when financial issues are there for us to pay. With that, budgeting helps people in great ways. All purchases of financial products should be done in a larger context.

 

Funding various financial goals is necessary to avoid having debts throughout time. In those goals, make sure to get a life plan to secure and pay for.

 

 

 

  • What is included in a Life Plan? 

 

  • Full Mortuary Service

 

Mortuary services include the overall preparation of the body. It is often more focused on caring for and preparing the body for burial or cremation purposes.

 

 

  • Chapel Viewing

 

A chapel viewing is a time when people come to see the deceased after a funeral company has prepared them.

 

  • Cremation

 

The process of burning a dead body at very high temperatures until there are only brittle.

 

  • Metal Casket

 

Inclusion of metal casket that’s designed to hold the remains of the deceased.

 

  • Retrieval

 

The process of retrieving the deceased for burial, either from a house or hospital.

 

  • Preservation of the Body

 

The process of preserving a body to delay the natural break down of cells.

 

  • Lightings

 

Inclusion of lightings for the deceased to provide a beautiful display during a funeral or memorial service.

 

  • Hearse

 

Conveying the deceased to the place of burial.

 

 

Whatever situations you may face, knowing how to best prepare for the expected and unexpected can help make the transition hassle-free.

 

Knowing how to spend your money is one of the primary ways you can do to survive the future.  Although you are most likely to die in time, it’s a wise choice to secure a robust life plan to cover potential financial burdens.

  • How to find the Best Life Plan Company in the Philippines

 

Finding the best life plan company in the Philippines is like finding a deal that's right for you.

Having a life plan is a serious matter. Death is unfortunate, but it is an inevitable event that we need to admit.

We all end up dying - it is just a matter of how and when. In that case, make sure to choose the right company to help you.

Remember this: planning on something that is destined to happen seems a reasonable thing to do. Until it happens, make sure to look forward to each day with a smile.

Check out the following stuff you need to make sure.

 

  • Qualities to look for in Life Plan providers

 

Life plan providers are common in the Philippines. However, it's always better to cherry-pick the ones who can be trusted. Always verify some details before making a move!

Here are several qualities to look for in life plan providers in the country.

 

Trustworthy

Availing of a life plan package should be relevant and cost-effective for people. With some Filipinos juggling their jobs just to provide food for their family, budgeting is of the essence.

Having a trustworthy life plan provider gives assurance that your money is taken care of. No lies, wasted money, and problems to think through.

Even though a life plan payment can be done on a monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, or annual basis, your money would be lost in a snap if you trust liars and swindlers.

Choose wisely to avoid having complications with such matters.

 

Stable and well-founded

Check out companies with government regulators like the Insurance Commission or the Securities and Exchange Commission to ensure they are not in trouble.

By ensuring these things, you'll be out of distress because the company won't dismiss or neglect you in the process. Being stable is beyond vital when cash is involved.

 

Flexible

Look around for a life plan provider that offers the best package – or rather, flexible rates.

Remember this: don't pay more than you can afford.

Whether you believe that death is appointed or just unexpected, there’s no need to hurry and starve yourself to death with premium payments.

In the Philippines, some companies offer reasonable prices that are right for your budget.

 

Competitive Spirit

Choose life plan providers that owe it to their customers to keep fighting.

 

Close to Customers

It’s important to choose life plan providers that are wrapped up in customers - along with their dreams, hopes, and their lives.

 

Wrapping Up

The ultimate decision-maker is yourself. Make sure that all the facts have been laid down before choosing "the one."

Can you imagine planning a birthday party in just a few days? Not a chance. Everything is in order when you prepare for the things ahead.

Planning for a funeral in advance is a smart thing to do. Making funeral plans at the time of death is extremely difficult when the time frame is short. Meaning, an excellent life plan provider is advisable to assist you with decision making.

 

 

 

Generally, funeral homes in the Philippines offer all-in-one packages for their customers. These packages include the processing of the legal documents, embalming, casket of their choice, and the venue of the funeral.

 

According to Fitz Villafuerte, “a simple funeral setup would cost around P15,000, while a grand service can cost as much as P500,000 per se. On average, the total amount of P150,000 would be a reasonable figure to expect. If a service isn’t included in the funeral package, expect to spend on some additional costs to make it happen.”

 

All in all, the mid-range cost of dying in the Philippines would be around P200,000. Pretty expensive, right?

 

Considering a specific budget is vitally important when it comes to having a life plan. Luckily, there are packages for people to consider that are a fit to their needs and savings.

 

Each life plan is different per company. To give you an estimate, here are Golden Future’s life plan packages to enlighten you.

 

KAPILYA Plan – P 75,000

KAPILYA PLUS Plan – P 74,000

DESTINY Plan – P 100,000

LEGACY Plan – P 210,000

TAHANAN PLUS Plan – P 48,000

TAHANAN Plan – P 55,000

 

Each price varies depending on the services it covers. As the planner, you have the liberty to choose the kind you’d like to have. Luckily, life plan companies are all around to give you your wishes.

 

 

  • Tips on how to compare Life Plan packages

 

Comparing life plan packages is useful as you can decide better later on. For you to be sure about what to reflect, here are tips on how to compare life plan packages in the Philippines.

 

  1. Make sure to decide if their offered price equals their services. Some companies offer high-priced fees, but the package isn’t satisfactory and worth it to purchase.

 

  1. Know your needs. Don’t just settle on a single life plan because there are other options for you to know. There’s no need to rush.

 

  1. Check the company if they’re steady enough to fulfill their life plan packages.

 

  1. Check the benefits. Apart from the basic package, some memorial plans also offer further benefits, so make sure to know your worth.

 

  1. Have all other competitors laid down on the table. Know who among them deserves to be picked. Choose the best package that you feel is right and just. Do not settle for less.

 

 

  • Frequently Asked Questions on Life Insurance Claims

Below lies the FAQs on Life Insurance Claims.

 

 

  • Things to do when the need for a Life Plan arises

 

Here are five things to do when the need for a Life Plan arises.

 

  1. Make sure to have an up-to-date will to take care of your family.

 

Being settled is important not only to you, but for your family’s mental freedom as well. If you don’t have a will, your loved ones might feel uncertain about what to do next, especially with funeral matters. What is it that you wanted when you were still alive?

 

 

  1. Consider a pre-payment for your memorial services/packages.

 

Discussing the need for life plans seems overwhelming because you’re still alive – we get that. However, a prepaid funeral plan can be comforting from this day forward.

 

A prepaid funeral package can give you the liberty to get on and appreciate life, with the peace of mind that your funeral arrangements are looked after.

 

 

  1. Choose a life plan company that is reliable for such matters.

 

Life plan providers in the Philippines are all helpful, but make sure to cherry-pick the one that’ll help you accomplish your desired outcome. Life plans are rather costly than cheap, so be sure to decide twice than to have nothing as a result.

 

 

  1. Talk with your family about your decision to have a life plan.

 

Having your family alert of your decisions will help them shortly. Being knowledgeable is better than being ignorant and clueless.

 

 

  1. Enjoy life to the fullest.

 

Having a life plan doesn’t necessarily mean that you’ll perish shortly. As you pay for your chosen package, make sure to spend time with yourself and your loved ones.

 

As Eleanor Roosevelt said, “the purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.”

 

Life live to the fullest! Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.
