 How would a pre-need help you & your family?
Pre-Planning is a loving gift you can make for your family and survivors that provides complete peace of mind to everyone involved. Pre-Planning your funeral will make certain that your choices are respected and carried out, without leaving your family to wonder what your wishes might have been.
Why should you make Pre-Arrangements for your funeral?
• You can plan together as a family.
• You help spare your loved ones from having to make difficult decisions, which could be more costly.
• It ensures your wishes are well-documented and your service reflects your unique personality
• Ensures all your personal documents are organized and easy for your survivors to locate. Safety deposit boxes are not a good place.
• DD214 for our Veterans to ensure military honors is requested.
Did you know?
You have the option of paying for your funeral in advance to help protect your investment for your funeral arrangements.
Funeral Insurance can be purchased to pay the costs of the services, merchandise, and cemetery you selected.
Here are some tips that may help you start the advance planning conversation with your loved ones:
• Tell your parent or loved one that you want to ensure their final arrangements are done according to their wishes, and you need their help to make that happen.
• Ease into the conversation. Questions such as “Have you ever thought about where you would like to be buried?” or “What type of funeral would you like to have?” may open the discussion to more details about your loved one’s wishes.
• Tell your children or loved ones that because you care for them so much, you don’t want to burden them with difficult decisions when you’re gone. Tell them you’ve made your own final arrangements, and give them a written record of what they are.
