About Funeral Pre-Planning

Without a doubt, dying is one of the few events in life that is certain to occur. You may never marry, or have children; but without fail, one day you will take your last breath. For most of us, this is a disquieting thought. Yet it is still something you should plan for – if not for your own peace-of-mind, then for the well-being of those you’ll leave behind.

This section will help you make decisions for the future by explaining what is involved in funeral pre-arrangements, the rewards of pre-planning a funeral, and what options are available.


Pre-Payment Options

There are a growing number of options available to the public today when seeking to preplan and prepay their final wishes. We can tailor a plan that's right for you. From single pay plans to automatic monthly bank withdrawals designed to meet anyone's budget concerns, our staff would be pleased to outline the choices available.

A prepaid funeral can protect you and your family from future inflationary trends while providing the peace-of-mind of knowing that they will be cared for after you are gone. Below you will find more detailed explanations of the plans that we have available.

If you would like to request an appointment after you have reviewed this information, we would be pleased to have one of our staff go over any additional questions you might have.
 

When is the Best Time to Pre-Plan Your Funeral?

We’d like to say “right now”, but know you may not be emotionally ready to take on this task. Perhaps the best time to begin making your funeral pre-arrangements is when you have a family you wish to protect from the emotional and financial burdens they will carry when you leave them with no plan at all.

By taking time now to collect funeral cost information and calmly making choices related to your own funeral arrangements, you'll be protecting your family against the stress of having to make these decisions at a time of extreme emotional stress. This way you can carefully choose specific items you want and need... and pay for them now. Prepaid Investments through funeral homes allows families to fund their funerals in advance through different investment vehicles.
 

The Six Common Reasons for Pre-Planning a Funeral

Today, more individuals and families are making the decision to prearrange their funerals than ever before. Because of the factors such as inflation, fewer extended family members living close by, and other changes in our society, planning your own funeral can make a lot of sense.

In a recent survey, these were the most common reasons people gave for prearranging their own funerals:

  1. Communicates your wishes
  2. Reduces stress for friends and family at an already emotional time
  3. Saves money
  4. It may guarantee your family will never have to pay more for your funeral — no matter what happens with inflation
  5. Shows you care
  6. Relieves your loved ones of the financial responsibility

Any one of those reasons is good, but when you take them all together, it’s easy to see why pre-planning your funeral is one of the smartest things you can do. If you agree, give us a call to set an appointment with one of our certified pre-planning advisors, or get started right now, with PreArrangement Online. Don’t worry. It’s safe, secure, and completely private.
