Benefits of Pre-Planning

Why plan ahead?
  • Planning your funeral service, preparing your will, tax planning and obtaining adequate life insurance is a responsible part of protecting your family's future.
  • Funeral decisions made in advance, at a time when everyone is calm and in good health, are more likely to be rational and carefully thought out.
  • Pre-planning your funeral can reduce the emotional burden of having to make detailed arrangements quickly, at a time of sadness, stress and vulnerability and when so many other decisions and arrangements have to be made.
  • Pre-planning also eliminates the financial burden to your family, who may not be prepared for this expense.
  • Pre-planning for a funeral can often save money for the household by locking in today's prices.
  • You may cancel your prepaid funeral contract at any time and get a refund.

Pre-Planning Guide
  • Be sure to talk through your funeral plans with those who care about you. It is important that a spouse or child accompany you when pre-planning a funeral.
  • You, your next of kin, or qualified executor has the legal authority to finalize your funeral arrangements.
  • You can make funeral pre-arrangements at the funeral home or in your own home, whichever is most comfortable for you.
  • Choose a funeral home that meets all of your needs in terms of the facilities they have, their price, and their staff. Also be sure that the funeral home provides you with a copy of the guaranteed prepaid funeral contract. Most funeral homes ask a small cancellation fee.
