Planning your funeral arrangements in advance can offer you and you family a number of benefits:
Â â€œIf I were to die tomorrow, how would my loved ones pay for my funeral expenses?â€?Â
Â Life insurance, savings, etc.Â
Â â€œIf I were to die tomorrow, would my loved ones knowâ€¦.â€?
Â What type of service I want, which funeral home or crematory I prefer, do I want a casket, urn, etc.Â
There are many decisions which need to be made in planning a funeral. Selecting funeral merchandise, the type of service and those who might officiate are just a few of the many choices. Planning in advance ensures your wishes are fully met, down to the smallest detail.Â
Â â€œ If I were to die tomorrow, how would my loved ones benefit from my decision to prearrange?â€?
Â * My loved ones wonâ€™t be burdened with making decisions at a difficult time.Â
Â * They can come together and grieve because prearranging reduces the potential for disagreements about the funeral decisions.Â
Â * They will be relieved of the financial responsibility for my funeral. Â
Â * Most importantly, they will take comfort in knowing they are honoring my wishes.
Emotional overspending, lack of direction and a sense of desperation are all things we see families go through in our funeral home. While the grief is still there, much comfort is felt in knowing all the wishes are honored and cost covered by an advance funeral plan.Â
We purchase life insurance to protect our families in the event of our death. We make a will to answer questions regarding our estate, but our end-of-life planning should not end there.Â
Advance funeral planning and funding are growing trends in America for good reason. When you preplan, you make decisions with a clear mind and purpose. In most cases, you can prefund your funeral, protecting your family against inflation by locking in todayâ€™s cost. Â
Itâ€™s tough to ponder any question beginning with the phrase, â€œIf I were to dieâ€¦.â€? But, for many, the thought of leaving their families without the protection of a funded advance funeral plan is even more difficult. Â
