Planning your farewell ceremony, whether a funeral or a cremation, is personal and intimate. It is possible to record your wishes and ideas regarding your funeral or cremation in a statement. This can either be written by yourself or by a notary. This last will and testament must be signed and dated by you. If your wishes change in the course of time, you can always write a new declaration and revoke the previous one.
The decision to take out funeral insurance (Uitvaartverzekering) is voluntary and not required by law. If you do not have funeral insurance, your relatives will pay for the funeral or cremation. The municipality will cover the costs if there are no relatives, but they can then be deducted from your inheritance.
The tool is for Dutch citizens and expats new to the Netherlands and looking for suitable burial insurance.
Some important notes
We provide an overview of various funeral insurance options in the Netherlands through a partner. However, it's essential to understand that we are not licensed insurance advisors and do not have authorisation from the Dutch Financial Markets Authority (AFM). Therefore, we are not qualified to provide specific advice on individual insurance offers or personal recommendations.
If you need detailed information about a funeral insurance offer, please contact the provider directly. They have the necessary expertise and qualifications to provide tailored advice and explanations about their products.
Please also note that all insurance providers on our platform serve the Dutch market. So if you live, work or plan to move to the Netherlands, you will find many funeral insurance options here. However, if you live outside the Netherlands, some providers may be unable to offer their services.
It is important to note that not all providers offer services or support in English or German. This can be significant if you need help or have questions about your insurance. In addition, some providers may not accept German account numbers or telephone numbers. Therefore, checking these points with the provider before taking out insurance is advisable.
Please note that we may receive compensation for referring customers to providers. Our platform is funded by advertising, and we earn money when users click on advertisements or are redirected to a provider's website.
