Considering prearranging your funeral? Here are some reasons for planning your funeral ahead of time that will benefit you and your loved ones.
The death of a love one is a tragedy every household experiences.
Most families will find themselves poorly prepared to deal with the problems, indecisions, and costs that a death forces on them.
The decision to prearrange our funeral and cemetery needs today is very economically sound, although the strongest reason to prearrange are love and peace of mind.
A husband and wife can share their choices and decide together, therefore saving loved ones heartache, expense and inconvenience at the time of death.
On a prearrangement basis, funeral merchandise can be selected by all family members, thus guaranteeing everyone’s satisfaction.
Based on the last five decades, we know the cost of funeral and cemetery arrangements will continue to increase. Prearrangement allows the cost to be frozen at today’s prices.
4. Conserves Insurance
Life insurance is for the living, not the deceased. Most life insurance is purchased to allow a family time to adjust to the loss of income that a death causes. If prearrangements are not made, a large amount of insurance proceeds can be spent on cemetery and funeral items adding financial burdens to love ones left behind.
Funeral and memorialization costs are expenses every individual must plan to pay. These needs can be met today out of current income through budget payments. Payment at time of death is traditionally made on a cash basis.
6. Peace of Mind
When a death occurs in any family or among friends, the grief is tremendous and the healing time very long. Prearrangement will have a positive impact on your family and friends simply because you have made your own decision. This peace of mind provides benefits far beyond the dollars spent.
