When is the Best Time for Pre Need Funeral Planning?
We’d like to say “right now”, but know you may not be emotionally ready to take on this task. Perhaps the best time to begin making your funeral pre-arrangements is when you have a family you wish to protect from the emotional and financial burdens they will carry when you leave them with no pre arranged funeral plans.
By taking time now to collect funeral 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.
Benefits of Funeral Pre Planning
Today, more individuals and families are making the decision to prearrange their funerals than ever before. Because of factors such as inflation, fewer extended family members living close by, and other changes in our society, making pre arranged funeral plans can make a lot of sense.
We have found that the most common benefits to funeral pre planning are:
You Can Choose the Way You'll be Remembered
Have you given any thought as to how you want to be remembered? Maybe you had a long career in the military that you'd like to celebrate. Maybe you love animals and would like to encourage donations in your memory to your local humane society. When you make funeral pre-arrangements you put your wishes on paper so that your loved ones will know exactly how to celebrate your life and honor your memory.
You’ll Make it Easier on Your Loved Ones
Did you know that there are more than 70 details that need to be tended to in the first 24 hours after a death? Are your loved ones ready for all that responsibility?
When you pre-arrange, you make those first 24 hours easier for your loved ones. You can also save them money. The stress of making last-minute funeral arrangements often cause people to make unnecessary purchases. By taking care of the arrangements yourself, you free them from spending more than they need too.
You Can Protect Yourself and Your Family from Rising Funeral Costs
Like most things, funeral costs tend to rise every year. That means that a funeral today will probably cost less than the same funeral three or four years from now. Paying for your funeral now can save your loved ones money. If you’d like to explore the subject of locking in funeral costs, please call us.
Any one of those reasons is good, but when you take them all together, it’s easy to see why pre-planning your funeral is one of the smartest things you can do. If you agree, give us a call to set an appointment with one of our certified pre-planning advisors, or get started right now, with PreArrangement Online. Don’t worry. It’s safe, secure, and completely private.
You’ll Empower Your Family
They will know exactly what needs to be done. That’s because you’ve taken all of the guess work out of planning your funeral. When you pre-arrange your funeral, everyone benefits. You know that your wishes will be carried out and your loved ones know exactly how to honor you.
