Many people plan for life events such as weddings and vacations well in advance, but many people do not plan for something that is certain to happen: their death. While most people do not want to think about their own mortality, the time to pre-plan your final arrangements is now. The primary advantages of pre-arranging your final arrangements are to relieve the burden on your loved ones in an already emotional time and to ensure your wishes are carried out according to your plan, eliminating the task of second-guessing what you would have wanted. Taking the time now to make your arrangements relieves your loved ones of that responsibility once you’ve passed. Pre-planning and pre-paying your final expenses is one of the most thoughtful gifts you can give to your family.
Pre-paying your final expenses reduces stress and financial burden on your loved ones after your passing. We can coordinate a payment plan that suits your needs, from a single payment plan to monthly bank account withdrawals. By pre-paying your final expenses, you eliminate your family second-guessing whether they have spent too much or too little. For more information on how pre-paying can save you money, give us a call to arrange a no cost consultation with one of our team members. Each year thousands of people decide to pre-plan and pre-pay their final expenses. Our plans are designed to be flexible and can accommodate the many changes that often occur in people’s lives.
What you can do in advance…
- Decide on burial or cremation and your casket or urn type
- Pick what type of service you want (religious, military, non-traditional)
- Choose which service provider to use
- Designate the family members and friends you want to recognize
- Pick any music or readings you want at your service
Benefits of Pre-Planning
- Between 70 and 75 decisions are made within the first 24-48 hours of death. It’s difficult to think rationally while making so many decisions within days of losing someone. Pre-planning gives yourself, family, and friends peace of mind. Pre-planning gives your loved ones direction of your wants and desires.
- It’s easy. Anyone can do it and you can change your mind at any time.
