Planning Ahead

Pre-Payment Options

There are a growing number of options available to the public today when it comes to pre-plan and pre-pay final wishes. Because of our extensive knowledge and experience we can work with you to tailor a plan that's just right for you. From single pay plans to automatic monthly bank withdrawals designed to meet anyone's budget concerns, our staff will be more than willing to outline the choices available.

Pre-paying can protect you and your family from future inflationary trends, while simultaneously providing the peace of mind of knowing that your family will be free to focus on the loss, not the details of the funeral, 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 meet with you to 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 pre-arrangements 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 pre-plan, people who do pre-plan say that pre-arranging 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 make 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 you can pay for them now. Pre-paid investments through funeral homes allow families to fund their funerals in advance through different investment vehicles.

The Six Common Reasons for Pre-arranging Funerals:

Today, more individuals and families are making the decision to pre-arrange funerals than ever before. Because of factors such as inflation, fewer extended family members living close by, and other changes in our society, planning your own funeral can make a lot of sense. In a recent survey, these were the most common reasons people gave for pre-arranging their own funerals:

  1. Lets your wishes be known.
  2. Reduces stress for friends and family at an already emotional time.
  3. Saves money
  4. Guarantees your family will never have to pay more for the funeral you plan - no matter what happens with inflation.
  5. Shows you care.
  6. Relieves your loved ones of the financial responsibility.
