Benefits of Pre-Arrangements


Planning your funeral arrangements in advance can offer you and your family peace of mind through several benefits:

Emotional Benefits:

  • More Time to Consider Your Options – You and your family will have time to research your options and make well-informed decisions that truly reflect your preferences.
  • Easier Decisions  Many individuals and families find it easier to make decisions in advance without the added stress of grief and other responsibilities.
  • A Sense of Accomplishment – You’ll feel good knowing that arrangements are complete and your family will have fewer decisions to make in the future.
  • Fewer Family Concerns - Your surviving family members will have less to worry about in the event of your death and take comfort in knowing they are providing the services you requested.

Financial Benefits:

  • The Pre-payment Option – When you pre-pay, you can lock in current prices. Our funeral director will explain each payment method and investment option available and will help you make a decision that best suits you and your family now and in the future.
  • Your Family Keeps More – When you select the option to pre-pay in full, your estate will owe nothing on funeral expenses. More of your assets and life insurance proceeds will go directly to your family.
  • Save the Amount You Need – Once you decide the total cost of a funeral service, you can earmark a portion of your savings to cover those costs.
  • Fewer Last-minute Expenses – When you plan in advance, your family is less likely to incur additional expenses at the time of the funeral, making the process easier both emotionally and financially.
