Advance Planning: Pre-arrangement FAQ

Sometime, Somewhere, Funeral Arrangements Will Need To Be Completed By Someone…

Provide peace of mind to your family by pre-planning today.


Why “preplan” your funeral arrangements? 

  • Prearrangements provide a record of your wishes that will be accessible to surviving family members 
  • Relieves surviving family members of some of the emotional burdens associated with making funeral arrangement decisions. 
  • Allows for a less stressful environment, without time constraints, to make important decisions 
  • Allows for surviving family members to concentrate on the memories of a lifetime rather than the details surrounding death.

Although it is possible to make these arrangements without pre-paying , many families choose to take care of the final expenses in advance. Why?

  • Prepaying relieves surviving family members of the financial burden associated with final expenses. 
  • Allows you the opportunity to determine exactly how much to spend for funeral services. 
  • Protects assets from confiscation due to long-term care expenses. 
  • Transfers the risk of inflation of funeral costs to the funeral home. 
  • Offers the opportunity to pay for the final expenses in installments.
