No one likes to think about death, let alone plan for it. By pre-planning your funeral, you relieve your family of having to make important financial decisions during a period of great stress and grief-a time when people aren't thinking very clearly and may not know what to do because you never made your wishes known.
Pre-planning your funeral can be very informal, and as simple as jotting down your preferences and sharing your wishes with a family member. More formal arrangements in the form of a preneed contract can be set up with us and can be pre-funded through life insurance, bank trust agreements, or another method.
Here are a few advantages of funeral pre-arrangement:
1. YOUR FAMILY
One of the most important reasons for pre-arranging is to spare your family from the numerous decisions that must be made at an emotionally difficult time. It also makes the process easier for those family members who may be located in other geographical areas.
2. PEACE OF MIND
Funeral decisions made early provides you and your family the satisfaction of knowing everything will be taken care of according to your special wishes.
3. SAVING OR SECURING MONEY
Another very important reason for an individual to establish a pre-need plan/trust, especially for one who may need to seek out expensive health care, is to set aside money to fund the service of their choice before funds may become completely exhausted.
