By prearranging you can ensure that your final wishes are respected. Often, following a death, it becomes harder for your family to make decisions or come to agreements. By taking the time to decide what you would like to happen, you’re saving your loved ones the stress of having to guess.
Prearranging your final wishes saves your family money. When you pay for your final wishes ahead of time, you’re saving your family from significant financial stress. Your money is protected, invested with a trust or insurance company that is totally independent of the funeral home and you can cancel at any time. When the death occurs, your family does not have to pay anything additional, even if our prices have increased over time. The only time your family would have to pay for anything additional is if they decided they wanted to add something.
The death of a loved one takes a serious toll and often times comes without much warning. Prearranging your final wishes ensures that at the time of your death, your loved ones can spend time together, not worrying about price lists or costs, which will provide them much comfort at a sensitive time.
It’s important to make informed decisions, to understand your choices, and to know where your money is going. Working with a licensed funeral director, you can be confident that you’re receiving expert advice from a professional in a relaxed, unhurried environment. You can ask questions, weigh your options, and discuss any concerns that you may have without feeling any pressure.
When a death occurs, most funeral homes require a deposit up front and the balance within a short period of time after that. When you prearrange your final wishes, you have many options and we offer payment plans that can be spread out over 1-15 years depending on your age.
When you pre-pay for your final arrangements with us, your money is placed with a 3rd party company for your protection. Legally funeral homes are not allowed to hold pre-paid funds and must place them in trust for your protection. The funds are only paid to the funeral home when the death occurs. Also, the government has established a compensation fund to protect consumers who have pre-paid for their final arrangements.
