About Pre-Planning

Dying is one of the few events in life that is certain to occur, yet one we are not likely to plan for. Should we really spend more time preparing for two weeks away from work than we do our last days on Earth?

This section will help you make decisions for the future by explaining what pre-arrangement is, what is involved, and what options are available.

Pre-Payment Options

There are a growing number of options available to the public today when seeking to prearrange and prepay their final wishes.

Pre-paying can protect you and your family from future inflationary trends while providing the piece of mind of knowing that they will be cared for after you are gone. Below you will find more detailed explanations of the plans that we have available. If you would like to request an appointment after you have reviewed this information, we would be pleased to have one of our staff go over any additional questions you might have.

When is the Best Time to Pre-Plan Your Funeral?

The best time to begin making your prearrangements is now, while you're thinking about it. While some people in their 40's and 50's may think it's too early to preplan, people who do say that prearranging their funerals is smart financial planning and gives them added peace of mind knowing they aren't leaving this burden to family members. By taking time now to collect 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.

The Six Common Reasons for Prearranging Funerals

In a recent survey, these were the most common reasons people gave for prearranging their own funerals:

  • Lets your wishes be known
  • Reduces stress for friends and family at an already emotional time
  • Saves money
  • Guarantees your family will never have to pay more for your funeral — no matter what happens with inflation
  • Shows you care
  • Relieves your loved ones of the financial responsibility
