Benefits of Planning Ahead

Planning funeral arrangements in advance can offer you and your family a number of emotional and financial benefits. It is a very emotional time when a death occurs and the number of choices and options when planning a funeral can seem overwhelming. Pre-planning can ease some of these challenges.

 

From choosing a funeral home to deciding on burial or cremation, to picking a casket and creating a payment plan, there are many benefits to documenting your wishes.

 

Emotional Benefits

More Time to Consider Your Options
You and your family will have time to learn about your options and make well-informed decisions, without feeling rushed.

A Sense of Accomplishment
You will feel good knowing that these arrangements have been taken care of and that your wishes and choices are shared and documented.

Fewer Concerns for Your Family
Your surviving family members do not need to worry about making funeral decisions or choices in the event of your death. 

Financial Benefits

The Pre-payment Option
Pre-planning does not need to include pre-payment, but when you do pre-pay, you can lock in today’s prices. There are many pre-payment options available and your funeral director can help you determine what the best option is for you and your family.  

Your Family Keeps More
When you pre-pay, your estate will owe nothing on funeral expenses which means more of your assets can be left to your family. 

Save the Amount You Need
Once you gain an understanding of the costs involved, you can earmark a portion of your savings to cover those costs

Fewer Last-minute Expenses
When you plan in advance, your family is less likely to incur additional expenses at the time of the funeral.

Meaningful Funerals

A meaningful funeral is one where the hopes and wishes of the deceased are realized and where family and friends gather to mourn, honor and remember. While the funeral of a loved one is a time of sadness and grief, there are also moments of comfort that can be shared. Sometimes that comfort comes from just being surrounded by family and friends or from sharing fond memories and stories. These moments can help move towards acceptance and healing.
