Pre-Planning

Thinking about the inevitability of one’s death is a subject that few like to consider. 
For many, actually moving ahead with the pre-planning or pre-paying for their funeral is even more difficult to act on.

When one begins to understand the financial and emotional pressure that a funeral can thrust on our loved ones, it becomes clear that planning in advance is a considerate and responsible thing to do. 

Similar to the protection that life insurance provides for loved ones, planning a funeral in advance can protect loved ones from much more than just financial concerns. You have always been there to protect them throughout your life, why not after your death?

With the large number of options and considerations available to individuals today, it is important to speak with someone you can trust.

Our Directors, Verdell, Cory, Kristell, and Michael are always available to answer any questions you may have.

Getting Started

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO PRE-PLAN YOUR FUNERAL?
The best time to begin making your prearrangements is now, while you’re thinking about it. While some people in their 40’s and 50’s may think it’s too early to preplan, people who do say that prearranging their funerals is smart financial planning and gives them added peace of mind knowing they aren’t leaving this burden to family members. By taking time now to collect 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 PREARRANGING FUNERALS:
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:

  • Lets your wishes be known.
  • Reduces stress for friends and family at an already emotional time.
  • Saves money
  • Guarantees your family will never have to pay more for your funeral — no matter what happens with inflation.
  • Shows you care.
  • Relieves your loved ones of the financial responsibility.

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.

Pre-paying can protect you and your family from future inflationary trends while providing the piece of mind of knowing that they will be cared for after you are gone.

TESTIMONIALS

Start Pre-Planning

One of the most caring, loving things you can do for your family is to leave detailed information which permits them to make the funeral service a personal tribute in keeping with the way you wanted.

Making funeral arrangements at the time of loss is extremely difficult for those left behind. When the funeral, and sometimes even payment, have been arranged in advance, most of the decisions have been made, sparing uncertainty and confusion at a time when emotional stress may make decisions difficult.

Would it not be better to plan ahead, calmly and sensibly, when you are in a normal mental and physical state, when you have full ability to reason, and when you are able to discuss arrangements with your family?
